Lahore: After raising $25 million in funding, launching their iOS app and crossing two million listings, Carmudi continues to show exceptional growth and shows no signs of slowing down.
Carmudi, the fastest way to sell and buy cars online in the emerging markets, attracted 6.4 million monthly visitors during the second quarter of 2015, a 17.6 percent increase over Q1. The number of monthly visits grew in all twenty countries where Carmudi operates, and exceptional growth in traffic was seen in Sri Lanka, Ivory Coast and Vietnam, where monthly visits grew up to 68 percent. Between Q1 and Q2, Carmudi Pakistan saw a 30 percent growth in total visits, with over 90% increase in iOS visits since the app was launched earlier this year.
Mobile growth has continued to flourish. Carmudi hit over three million mobile visits in May, up 35 percent from January 2015. Since the February releases of the Carmudi iOS app, Carmudi has seen more than 150,000 app visits per month. The highest numbers of iOS app visits can be seen in Vietnam, Nigeria and in Bangladesh. Part of the reason for the app success stems from the fact that Carmudi specifically designed the app to work even with the slowest Internet connection as it only loads what is absolutely necessary.
Out of four regions where Carmudi is currently present, the fastest growing countries are Pakistan, Indonesia, UAE, Mexico and Nigeria. In the past eight month period, the number of uploaded listings on the site have increased up to 116.6 percent.
