Initial research found some relevant information, but the following data points seem unavailable: 1) for October and November 2019, there appears to be no data on iOS TikTok downloads in the UK. This makes it difficult to calculate the precise number of 2019 UK TikTok downloads, as information is available on a monthly basis both for android and iOS downloads. 2) for January 2020, the number of monthly downloads or active users don't seem available. Data points required to calculate this don't seem to be available. For these reasons, we would recommend continued research which will calculate the number of active TikTok users in the UK in 2019, building upon the data found in early research (the total number of smartphone users in the UK) and find the top 20 countries by the number of TikTok users in 2019. This research will also determine where UK stands in terms of user-base worldwide (we will compare UK's TikTok user-base with other countries). We would eliminate 2020 data from this research as it is mostly unavailable.
We could provide a SWOT analysis of TikTok in the UK (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats).
We could also create a report on the future of TikTok. We will provide 3-5 insights on what the app is predicted to do throughout the rest of the year 2020 (whether its audience will grow, whether it will re-brand, how the negative backlash will affect its business and so on). If possible, this information will be focused on the UK.
