Panel Focus: Is it an App Bubble that we are facing?

Even with the number of new apps growing exponentially with each passing day, market researchers have begun to notice certain trends might be indicative of an app bubble. The bubble is a trend which suggests that investors could be funneling funds into startups and new app ventures with little regard for the risks involved. In this panel at GMASA’16, a panel of experts will sit down and share their views on whether the app bubble does exist, the factors that could be contributing to it and what they think is the future of the app market in the light of a possible app bubble.
