Revenue and installations of self-care apps is rising at a fast rate, according to data from Apptopia. It shows that in 2018 new installations have risen by 36% over the same period in 2017, and revenue is up by 40%.

Apptopia says this massive rise in attention means iOS and Android self-care apps have made $32m during the first quarter of 2018 alone, with Calm and Headspace at the top of the charts. To show just how dominant these two apps are, they’ve collected 88% of the total revenue among the top 10 self-care apps over the past three months.

This increase in attention and revenue means more self-care apps are being produced than ever before. In 2014 there were 1743 apps labeled self-care in both the App Store and Google Play. In 2017 this had risen to 3194, and Apptopia expects it to reach 3444 in 2018.
