10 Billion Downloads in 2020

Further, the number of actively downloading user platforms increased by 18%. And, finally, the number of product views by visitors on the Icecat portal increased by a staggering 466%. Not just brand users and channel partners, but also more consumers and professional buyers are browsing the Icecat pages. To understand products, view videos, and manuals, and look for compatible spare parts. This also leads to an improved ranking of the icecat portal on Similarweb (38% improved ranking) and Alexa (29% improved ranking).
