3 March 2014 | The number of people employed in Canada’s apps economy has grown to over 64,000, and will top 110,000 by 2019, according to analysts at the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC). The estimates and projections are contained in the Council’s second look at the red-hot Canadian mobile apps landscape, The Appification of Everything: Canada’s apps economy value chain.
The report, which is based on survey, secondary data and interviews, finds that the number of people employed in the development of apps has grown by nearly 25% since the Council released a first report in October 2012. Enterprises developing apps are generating $1.7 billion in revenue per year – expected to reach $5.2 billion by 2019.
