You might want to consider building apps for Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Turkey.

A new report from Distimo finds that Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Turkey are the fasting-growing mobile markets in terms of app revenue. Although app revenue declined in the majority of countries during May 2012, Russian app revenue climbed 115 percent, easily making it the leader. Brazil placed second with 83 percent growth, followed by Mexico (63 percent) and Turkey (54 percent).

A separate study from VisionMobile resulted in a map of international mobile development markets. In the U.S. and Europe, nearly three-quarters of app sales go to local markets. However, in other parts of the world, the export rates are much higher, with North America being the chief market targeted by mobile developers.
