About the Online Gaming Market

The online gaming market is evolving globally. Broadly, there are two major segments for the purchase and use of online games: physical and digital. However, the physical mode of purchase (i.e., via retail) is gradually losing importance. Because of the increasing popularity of the internet and its widespread use and connectivity, developers and publishers have slowly started selling the games, developed through the internet, in the form of digital copies. Even though sales through the digital mode is still in the early stages, they are growing rapidly, leading to a decline of the matured mode of sale (i.e., via retail).

Technavio’s analysts forecast the Global Online Gaming Market to grow at a CAGR of 11.72% during the period 2016-2020.
