Love in Time of Corona Virus: Lamour Takes the NO.1 Dating Spot in India

NEW DELHI, INDIA  - 26 March 2020 - The Corona virus is now a global pandemic, and most countries in the world are heading to lock down.  Social distancing is now the new buzz word, and everyone is recommended to stay at home.  However, this has not stopped people from flocking to online social entertainment apps, and dating, in particular.
Dating is also proving to be resilient in investor's eyes too.  Match Group - The parent company of Tinder now has market value of $17 billion.  With a PE ratio of 33X at time of writing, Match is one of the most highly valued public Internet companies.  This is not just a unique occurrence. U.S. private equity giant Blackstone recently took controlling stake in Magic Lab, parent company of dating apps Bumble and Badoo, at a valuation of $3billion, more than six times revenue.
And now, Chinese dating apps have officially entered the global market too. According to AppAnnie, in Sep 2019, a new dating app Lamour debuted in top 10 most downloaded global non-game apps, and it was one of the only two apps from China.

According to Appannie, Lamour monthly download volume reached 3.5 million in Sep 2019, with 53% market in share amongst Indian dating apps, cementing its #1 position.

App Annie's analysis on Lamour specifically pointed to video chat, virtual gifts, and location based networking as the reasons why Lamour was able to get a pole position in India.  Based on Lamour's own user survey in Nov 2019, more than 50% of users came to Lamour via word of mouth referral, which speaks to the strength of the Lamour product and experience.

India is now an important market for online social and entertainment, data from the World Bank shows Indian population reached 1.339 billion, with a male-female ratio of 52:48. The demographic imbalance is much more pronounced among Internet mobile users, with females making up only one third of 451 million monthly active online users, according to a report by the Internet mobile association of India in 2019 (IAMAI).
