New Report shows apps related to Medical industry is seeing a great spike in usage when compared with others

Statistics say that apps inside the Medical category have seen the greatest usage increase in the past couple of months.

Survey conducted by Sensor Tower App Intelligence shows that the Medical category saw a 102% increase in app-usage in average Y/Y growth. Monthly active users saw almost double the numbers in top apps related to the Medical field. The 2nd category was related to Navigations which saw a considerably low increase in usage as compared to the Medical category. Further candidates saw similar margins in the graph which contained Travel, Business, Shopping, Finance and Education categories as well. Travel saw a 19% global increase, along with Business being 15% more, Shopping at 14%, Finance at 15% and Education at 13%. Education was surprisingly low considering many platforms used online learning and educating apps.

The insurgence of the Medical related apps can only be because of the pandemic which should’ve required the use of COVID-related apps such as PeduliLindungi, COOV and Conecte SUS. These are all apps that have information regarding COVID or anything related to it.

Other categories may have gained some form of influence because of other factors. Like Navigation and Travel are gaining more and more users because the pandemic situation is becoming less devastating in various countries. It’s safe to assume that people are starting to look to go on trips and travel around the world as the COVID situation goes down. There’s also mention of mobile games seeing a decline in usage.

Like Mobile Games, there weren’t any increases in Weather, News and Lifestyle usages as well. At this point, we can’t say where the trends are headed. These were results for the year 2022 and before compared with the year before but we don’t know what the next year has in store for us regarding usage trends in different categories.
