The term serious game was coined by Clark Abt in the 1970s in his book “Serious Games”. It refers to various digital applications that are developed to impart learning through games. It includes games whose main purpose is not to entertain, but to educate and teach users and create awareness about a subject.

A key driving factor for the growth of the serious game market is the high return on investment (ROI). Besides, several other factors such as the increased need for user engagement across enterprises and consumer brands, growing usage of mobile-based educational games, and improved learning outcomes are also propelling the growth of the market. However, some of the restraining factors for the growth of the serious game market include improper game design, lack of awareness about serious games, and lack of assessment tools to measure serious game effectiveness. The increasing scale of digitization and emergence of social networks are some of the key challenges for the serious game market.
