Almost Half of India’s top-100 Android apps come from China
44 Chinese apps made it onto India’s top-100 Android apps in 2018, up from last year’s rank of 18, according to research institute Sensor Tower. ByteDance’s short video app TikTok, Alibaba’s UC Browser, and language service Helo are some of the top-ranking apps. 5 apps out of top-10 list come from China.
The combined effects of a highly competitive market and an aging society are pushing Chinese tech giants abroad in search of new markets. India, with 500 million connected people, is becoming a new battleground for Chinese app developers but also smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo, and OnePlus. India’s total downloads on iOS and Android app stores surpassed those in the US in the first half of 2018.
In France, Tiktok is ranked 13th on Apple store downloads and 26th on Android. When that trend will reach Europe market?
