Global Video Games Market to Reach $270.3 Billion by 2026
- Major factors promoting growth for the global market for video games are the technological advancements in software and hardware, increased internet access, increased smartphone penetration, and easy access to games. Global video games market continues to grow at a healthy rate, surpassing revenues of music industry and box office revenues. Video gaming revenues are dependent completely on consumer spending levels, although the business model has changed considerably in the recent times. Unlike earlier times, present day consumers tend to purchase fewer games but spend greater time on these games. Consequently, the business model is shifting towards recurring type of revenues being generated by active user base, which contrasts to the earlier model that relied on sales of single units. Due to this changing business model, the focus on video game industry players is on increasing the per user engagement rates. For this, companies are looking to develop highly engaging games and also looking to adopt innovative in-game monetization opportunities. The integration of additional downloadable content such as expansion packs, characters, tools, and new features present gaming companies with added avenues to generate revenues. Such a business model has evolved in line with improvements being witnessed in Internet connectivity, especially mobile Internet services, and advancements in gaming hardware, which are enabling users to gain access to a wide range of high-quality games across varied platforms and devices. Mobile gaming in fact currently accounts for a growing share of revenue generation for the video gaming industry.
