Globally known for its function as a video conferencing application designed primarily for business purposes. The app was stablished by Eric Yuan in 2011, and was officially introduced to the market in January 2013.
Although it had gained substantial recognition and achieved profitability in subsequent years, Zoom experienced a significant surge in global awareness during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. It became the preferred communication platform for individuals worldwide during the lockdown measures implemented to curb the virus’s transmission.
According to https://www.businessofapps.com/data/zoom-statistics/ Zoom generated $4.3 billion revenue in 2022, an 7.3% increase year-on-year. This was in addition the 213,000 enterprise customers it had in 2022.
Additionally, data presented by BuyShares.com, reported that Zoom hit a record high quarterly revenue of $882.5 million in Q4 FY 2021, almost a 370% increase year-over-year.
