Digital gaming market in Asia-Pacific to more than double to US$30.3bn -

Digital gaming market in Asia-Pacific to more than double to US$30.3bn - | Video Game Market - Asia | Scoop.it

The Asia-Pacific digital games market will more than double over the next four years to be worth US$30.3bn in 2016, according to Ovum.

 

Neha Dharia, Ovum’s consumer telecoms analyst said that Asia-Pacific is already vital in terms of digital gaming retail sales, and will grow in importance in future. She commented: “The region will drive the digital games market globally. The most significant retail sales contribution will come from the massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) sector, while the highest amount of growth in the Asia-Pacific market will come from mobile gaming.”

 

With more and more casual players entering the market, gamer numbers will grow faster than retail sales, resulting in the erosion of average revenue per user (ARPU). Casual and social games will be vital to growing the number of gamers and bringing digital games into the mainstream.
