I don't have any research, but anecdotally, I know numerous startups,  
and most of them are producing web applications (usually client and  
server, but sometimes server only). Those doing desktop and mobile  
apps usually do server development, too, because in the age of  
ubiquitous network connectivity, applications that cannot take  
advantage of the Internet are few and far between.

Most internal development is in the form of web apps (it's rare to see  
a company that produces desktop applications for in-house use), and  
most job postings today are for client-side developers (JavaScript,  
CSS/HTML, Flash) or server-side developers (Java, PHP, Ruby, etc.).
