Supplementary notes

* Change in methodology. According to the source, due to the growing dynamics of digital business models, the statistical methods for measuring virtual additional content revenues were jointly adjusted by Gfk and BIU".

** The source stated in March 2019 as follows regarding the figures for 2017 onwards : "Please note: The recent data can not be compared to the 2018 market data due to a change of provider and the resulting changes of methodology. What is new is the fact that the data for the game app market are derived from the app market specialist App Annie."
This results in limited comparability for the figures from 2017 onward.
