Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 19 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what the value of the smartphone application development sector is to the Scottish economy.

Answered by: Fergus Ewing 30 January 2017

We have no specific information regarding the value to the economy of businesses involved in smartphone application development. However, data for the 'computer programming, consultancy and related activity' sector, of which smartphone application development will form part, shows that that sector contributed £2.1 billion in Gross Value Added in 2014.
