Market outlook of the global MMO games market
Massively multiplayer online (MMO) games are designed to be played on different network-capable platforms like video game consoles, smartphones, or PCs. Rapid technological advancements that have led to the emergence of HD displays and audio devices having HDMI wireless network capabilities are some of the major growth promoting factors in this market during the forecast period. Also, the launch of next generation gaming consoles is expected to positively spur market growth, resulting in its healthy CAGR of more than 8% by 2019.
The advent of digital downloading is a significant factor that is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. The latest gaming consoles are equipped with Wi-Fi, network connectivity, and HDD, which allows gamers to directly download games into their console. This removes the hassle of visiting a store to purchase physical discs, which are prone to damage by wear and tear.
Revenue-based segmentation of the global MMO games market
- Paid games
- Free-to-play games
In this market research report, analysts estimate the free-to-play games segment to generate the highest revenue during the forecast period. Growing popularity of this segment can be attributed to the elimination of entry barriers, which allows developers to penetrate the market in developing countries where owning a TV console is a luxury.
Geographical segmentation of the MMO games market
- Americas
- APAC
- EMEA
Geographically, the APAC region is estimated to be the highest revenue-generating segment during the forecast period.
