Apple Touts App Store Success in Europe – Claims Creation of Over 500K Jobs

Wednesday saw Apple touting the success of its App Store in Europe. The company claims it has created or supported nearly 630,000 jobs on the continent, nearly 500,000 of those resulting directly or indirectly from the App Store.



The stats were revealed on a new section of the company’s site entitled “Apple’s Job Creation in Europe.” The iPhone maker states that its App Store has enabled European developers to earn $6.5 billion from App Store sales, from a total of $20 billion in sales worldwide.

“This job growth for coders, developers, entrepreneurs, and others would not have existed without Apple’s innovation and technology,” the company said. “We also provide app developers with the tools and distribution they need to bring their best ideas to hundreds of millions of iOS customers worldwide through the incredible App Store.”

Apple itself directly employs 16,000 people in Europe, while it says 497,000 jobs in Europe are directly attributable to the App Store. Apple claims to directly or indirectly support an additional 132,000 jobs, while 116,000 jobs on the continent are said to have been created as a result of Apple’s growth.

Apple says its projections show an overall “app economy” that will deliver $16.5 billion in revenues to the European Union gross domestic product in 2014.
