China is eyeing about 80 million users of India
The mobile app market in India is quite important for China. About 800 million smartphone users in India read the news on mobile, play games, make short videos, and use social media apps. For the last two months, there was talk of a boycott of Chinese product and now the government has imposed a ban, although it will harm both China and India financially the security of the country cannot be compromised at any cost. In India, China earns the most from four types of apps.
Short video app and DIY app are big markets
First- shopping and loan app (economic app)
Second- makeup, selfie, photo editing i.e. vanity app
Third- sound recorder, call recorder, screen recorder (apps with nuisance value)
