 Pakistan Ranks 10th Globally in Mobile Usage

Pakistan has claimed the 10th spot globally in terms of mobile (Android) usage, with its citizens collectively spending a staggering 99 billion hours on their mobile phones in 2023.

As per the State of Apps report for Pakistan, a collaboration between Data Darbar and Emirati premium streaming platform Begin, the country boasted 124 million broadband subscribers last year. On average, a single user consumes 7.5GB of data per month. Remarkably, Pakistan maintained a consistent number of app downloads throughout the year, totaling 3.51 billion.

In recent years, Pakistan has emerged as one of the fastest-growing app markets. In 2022, its growth rate skyrocketed by nearly 35%, witnessing a surge from 2.61 billion downloads in 2021 to 3.52 billion in 2022.

However, in 2023, the market experienced a slight downturn, with a marginal decrease of 0.3%. This deceleration mirrors the global trend, where worldwide app downloads only marginally increased by 0.8% to 257 billion in 2023, compared to 255 billion the preceding year.
