Here is an absolutely insane statistic:
Right now, more than 1.2 billion people have devices that use mobile apps. This number is expected to grow by 29.8 percent every year until the end of 2017, when 4.4 billion people will be using apps.
That’s almost an increase by four times the number of users in four years.
In the United States new programming jobs are only projected to increase by 8% over the next 10 years. This means there is going to be a very big shortage of app developers. You might argue that the U.S. doesn’t represent the whole world, but the idea of slow but steady growth in one country is a good indicator of the rest.
Every country wants more developers and they simply can’t pump them out fast enough. It is easier to mass-produce phones than it is to mass-produce the people you need to program them. Schools take much longer to build than factories.
What does this tell us?
The mobile landscape is going to change in a big way, soon. Among other things, the widespread adoption of app builders is inevitable. Just like WordPress and similar web builders are used for about a quarter of all of the websites online today, app builders will be responsible for a huge percentage of the number of apps you’ll see.
