MobiDev Explains the Benefits of Progressive Web Applications in 2022 | State News
ATLANTA, November 4, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Speaking of web development, progressive web apps have been a buzzword for some time. But will your business benefit from the PWA path? Find out about the pros and cons of this technology and see how you can benefit from it in 2022.
Progressive web apps are by nature an evolutionary trend. A survey of ecommerce decision makers found that 9% of ecommerce businesses plan to invest in Progressive Web Applications (PWAs) in 2021. Research suggests that the financial value of the Progressive Web Applications market will reach a value of $ 10.77 billion by 2027, an annual growth of more than 30% by then.
The main advantage of the PWA design is that it is primarily platform independent. This, combined with the fact that PWAs are inherently installable, makes it easier to deploy an application across multiple platforms. PWAs also enjoy the benefits of modern website design in that they are responsive and lightweight. An added benefit of PWAs as separate web applications is that they are discoverable by search engine indexing.
The major downside to the PWA design is that there are some limitations on platform and hardware support. Because PWAs run in a browser, they do not have direct access to all of the capabilities of a platform that a native application built using a platform’s SDK would have access to. Some platforms also have limited support for these applications, although support and capabilities are constantly evolving. However, all major platforms including iOS, Mac, Android, and PC now offer some level of PWA support.
Should you be using PWA in 2022 and beyond?
If your product strategy requires rapid market entry and coverage of multiple platforms with a single codebase, PWA may be a choice. Progressive web applications allow start-ups to quickly and easily develop and distribute a progressive web application and have the minimum time and money required to deploy the application when resources are limited. Large enterprises can also benefit from adding value to their users with limited access to high performance platforms or who prefer a simpler and leaner experience.
