Evans Data has released a new "Global Development Population and Demographics Study," which found that there are now more than 12 million mobile development pros worldwide. When the company first began creating this annual report in 2006, there were only 2 million mobile developers, but there could be more than 14 million by 2020.

"Mobile development has really become ubiquitous" said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. "Mobile devices are everywhere, but while most modern applications support mobile devices, not all developers are working on the client target side. Some are server or back-end oriented or are concentrating more on the application logic or more and more on newer machine learning implementations, so watching the number of mobile developers move from just under two million 10 years ago to 12 million today just provides a reflection of the use of mobile devices today."

The report also found that 5.9 million mobile development pros target Android, compared to 2.8 million for iOS. In addition, it said that the number of mobile developers is growing most quickly in the Asia-Pacific region.
