According to a new report from Digi-Capital, the games market will grow from USD 90 billion in 2015 to USD 115 billion by 2020 with an average annual growth rate of 7%. Main segment will be mobile gaming going from $35 billion in 2016 to $48 billion by 2020, with an average annual growth rate of more than 8%.
Asia will be the dominant games region. For mobile games specifically, China’s strong domestic Android app stores and Apple’s surge in the last year mean that it should remain a market leader. Asia as a whole could account for more than half of all mobile games revenue by the end of the decade.
New trends to watch are: Virtual Reality (VR) games and Augmented Reality (AR) games.
