iOS Games: How Large the Market Is and How Much You Can Expect to Make from It

The current market for iOS gaming is about 110 million players. Gamers aged 25–34 spend the most money on freemium mobile games. In a survey of iOS game developers, only 15 percent reported earning lifetime revenue between $100,000 and $10 million, and just 4 percent between $1 and 10 million. However, independent developers dominate the iOS game market, making 68 percent of the most successful titles.
