According to a new forecast by app Annie, a mobile data and analytics company, tiktok’s upward trajectory is expected to continue in 2021, and the company estimates that the monthly active users of the short video app will exceed 1 billion next year. The expanded forecast also looks at future trends around mobile advertising spending, as well as the growth of mobile driven “home” activities, such as e-commerce and online meetings. < / P > < p > however, tiktok’s growth figure is the most prominent estimate in the new report. App Annie points out that the video app is increasingly popular and has nearly tripled in size since 2018. As of the third quarter of this year, tiktok became the second largest non gaming app in consumer spending because of its combined revenue streams of advertising and selling virtual gifts for tip streams. < p > < p > app Annie believes that this is a remarkable growth given that tiktok is still banned in India, one of the world’s largest mobile markets. Of course, the fate of the social video app in the United States will have to do with how the incoming Biden administration handles Trump’s tiktok ban. < p > < p > app Annie also predicts that “home” activities will continue to grow in 2021 driven by mobile. While the news of a potential covid-19 vaccine is promising, it is unlikely that everything will simply return to pre pandemic status after its release. Pandemics only accelerate trends that have already occurred. < p > < p > the report estimates that Android phones, for example, will spend more than 1.3 trillion hours on Key & quot; home & nbsp; home & nbsp; categories such as e-commerce and education, e-commerce, mobile finance and home fitness apps by 2021. < / P > < p > specifically, the CAGR of distance commerce applications (such as zoom) is expected to reach 57%, and the growth rate of distance learning applications will reach 62%. By 2021, the total time for mobile banking and financial applications will exceed 31 billion hours per year, with a four-year CAGR of 35%. Fitness and e-commerce will also grow by + 23% and + 40% respectively. < / P > < p > in addition, the company forecasts an 85% increase in the number of video streaming applications installed by U.S. consumers in 2021, compared with levels before the covid-19 pandemic. And it expects mobile advertising spending to reach $290 billion in 2021, thanks in part to strong growth in mobile commerce and a further shift from offline advertising to digital advertising. < / P > < p > “while the US presidential election helped drive mobile advertising spending in the second half of 2020, APP Annie expects advertising spending to continue to flow to smartphones in 2021,” the company said. “Especially considering that consumer migration to mobile is not an isolated trend – covid-19 catalyzes the habits we’ve formed,” the company added.
