For this reason, chinese app developers have to focus their business on oversea market. 

 For the top 10 global app publishers, there are only 1.53% revenue generated from China. Even it’s not easy for famous companies to get money from China market.

The data also release the top 10 Chinese app developers. they are Boyaa, LV1, Happylatte, PinIdea, Haypi, RenRenGames, Hoolai, Tap4Fun, iFre Studio, Wistone.

But there still is positive information for China App market. The data also shows downloads volume of China is the fastest in the world. At the same time, the new comers of this market still can have opportunities to make a successful story. The Apps of the top 100 list only take 45% of total revenue in China. But the percentage is more than 60% in Japan.

The character of the Chinese economic model is changing. Since the beginning of China’s economic reforms, growth has been driven by investment and exports. Growth in “New China” will be driven by domestic consumption, including service industries like retail, domestic transportation, travel, leisure and health care. Or at least that is the plan.

One area were personal consumption has grown particularly fast is within smartphones. A recent study by mobile research firm Flurry Analytics showed that China has overtaken the United States as the country where most Android and iOS (the two main smartphone platforms) devices were activated.

To take the pulse on Chinese consumption we decided to calculate the iOS penetration (Apple’s iPhone and iPad, not including iPod touch) rate in all Chinese provinces and municipalities, using data from Chinese mobile research firm Umeng and our own analysis of the number of iOS devices in China. Our estimate puts the total number of iPhones and iPads in China at end of 2011 at 21 million active devices, distributed as follows:
