TikTok User Spending Shot Up By Nearly 400% In January 2021 To $128 Million

Despite having a bleak outlook in 2020, TikTok ended the year on a high note and has embarked on an upward trajectory in 2021.

According to the research data analyzed and published by Comprar Acciones, TikTok was the top-grossing non-game mobile app globally in January 2021. Users spent $128 million on the app, up by 380% from its January 2020 revenue. 82% of the revenue came from China through its domestic app version Douyin and 8% from the US.

Based on a report by Apptopia, there were 89 million installs of the TikTok app in 2020 from the US alone. It ranked first ahead of Instagram, which had 62 million. Facebook was third with 53 million and Snapchat got the fourth place with 51 million.

TikTok US User Penetration to Rise from 31% in 2020 to 39% by 2024

TikTok was the second most downloaded mobile app in January 2021, with 62 million installs worldwide according to Sensor Tower. China accounted for 17% of the installs via Douyin while the US was second with 10%. For the full year 2020, it was the most downloaded and highest grossing mobile app worldwide. On the App Store, it generated $1.2 billion during the year, marking a 600% year-over-year (YoY) increase.

TikTok had a 500% increase in the number of US advertisers in 2020. Since late 2020, it has signed a number of major brands including Bose, McDonalds, Chobani and Kate Spade. According to eMarketer, TikTok’s user penetration in the US rose from 17.3% in 2019 to 31.1% in 2020. It will increase further to 39.3% by 2024.

On the other hand, in its home market, China, ByteDance (TikTok’s parent company) competes with Tencent-backed Kuaishou. Kuaishou is ranked as the second biggest short-form video platform behind Douyin. It recently raised $5.4 billion in a Hong Kong IPO, the largest IPO raise in over a year. Following the IPO, Kuaishou’s shares went from HK$115 ($14.80) to HK$320.20, sending its market value from $61 billion to $160 billion.
