Mobile App Development Services - Recent Price Trend

During the three years to 2017, the price per hour for mobile app development services has been increasing at an estimated average annual rate of 1.2%. Demand for these services has been rising in line with significant growth in the use of smartphones and tablets. Although the early stages of mobile app development focused on gaming and social networking, businesses have since begun to use apps.

Mobile App Development Services - Total Cost of Ownership

Buyers face a high total cost of ownership (TCO) for mobile app development services. A high total cost of ownership reduces buyer power because buyers risk incurring unexpected expenses that are beyond their budget. Although vendors generally charge buyers on an hourly basis for services, the total cost of developing an app can be well over 100.0% of the benchmark price of mobile app development.
