New report: The state of mobile shopping apps in 2021

Our brand-new report examines the ever-evolving shopping industry, delving into the trends and challenges faced by mobile retailers. Read on to find out the state of the industry, the latest product trends and cutting-edge features, and the key Mobile DevOps practices used by some of the leading shopping apps.

The shopping industry is one that is always in flux. One that's always responding to changes in consumer behavior and the expectations that shoppers have when it comes to where and how they do their shopping. 

The global pandemic has accelerated many of the changes already underway in ecommerce. And mobile, which has long been important, now represents a whopping 72.9% of total ecommerce spend. To put it mildly: being competitive in the mobile space as an e-retailer is no longer a choice that has to be made but a matter of survival.

  • That mobile commerce revenue saw 10 years’ growth in just three months at the beginning of 2020
