This report provides data and insights in trends that allow you to estimate the addressable market for desktop technologies, in terms of the number of people using such technology. The report discusses several aspects of the desktop developer population that may help you to fine-tune your addressable market size. We split developers by their professional involvement, target platforms, vertical markets, level of influence in purchasing decisions, geography, as well as their use of programming languages and specific desktop technologies.
This report provides data and insights into trends that allow you to estimate the addressable market for Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies, in terms of the number of developers using such technology. This also implicitly includes developers working on Mixed or Merged Reality applications. The report discusses several aspects of the AR/VR developer population that may help you to fine-tune your addressable market size. We split developers by their professional involvement, their target devices, the use cases they are working on, their level of influence in purchasing decisions, geography, their use of hardware acceleration, as well as their use of programming languages and specific AR/VR technologies.
This report on developer code optimisation strategies is based on the 13th Developer Economics survey data, which ran between April and June 2017 and reached 21,200+ developers and data scientists from over 160 countries. The survey data shows that augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) developers are the most active group of code optimisers, while web and backend development show the lowest proportions of developers performing optimisation. AR/VR developers are polarised strongly in favour of optimisation to enhance graphics, user experience, and audio content, while among other optimising developers, reducing memory, reducing latency and increasing data throughput are the most commonly selected reasons for code optimisation.
What our clients are saying about our research
This report is certainly a wake-up call. It shows a European app economy worth hundreds of thousands of jobs, and generating billions of euros a year. That's not bad for an economy that, 5 years ago, didn't even exist.
Vice-President of the European Commission, Digital Agenda
Andreas and the VisionMobile team did a first class job bringing new insights that helped connect our API management strategy to the world of mobile and app developers. We worked together to drive some webinars and a poster that captured our value props. Lots of fun.

I am a big fan of VisionMobile’s reports and think they are some of the most accurate and useful reports out there so this is very exciting!

That's actually the second time i download [The State of the Developer Nation]. I think it's a very comprehensive material with some real data on monetisation and profitability of apps and IoT services.
Senior Director AD & Connectivity strategy - Volvo Car Group
Your data is absolutely critical to our developer program decisions. You can't argue with 20,000 developers.
