Adjust launches its E-commerce App Report 2021: With insights from Sensor Tower

Social distancing and restrictions on movement have drastically shifted the way consumers interact with mobile and have bolstered the move toward mobile e-commerce, with numbers far exceeding pre-pandemic projections.

We also examine the rise of connected TV, social commerce, and gamification in e-commerce apps, and explore how marketers can benefit from new advertising tactics.

As restrictions have progressively eased in many markets, mobile e-commerce has shown its strength by continuing to grow, with installs and sessions both increasing impressively throughout 2021 — despite changes to user acquisition (UA) on iOS brought about by Apple’s AppTrackingTransparency framework.

Marketers and developers in m-commerce have repeatedly shown their adaptability when it comes to facing challenges and building products that meet the needs of users. As its popularity continues to soar, the apps that most successfully acquire high-quality and loyal users will come out on top.
