The Manufacture and Retail Trade of Toys and Games:
The formal toys and games sector is dominated by imported branded products and there is very little local manufacture in this segment of the industry. The manufacture that does take place focuses on products that are mainly handmade, that are produced in small workshops and that do not carry brand names. Stakeholders estimate the total retail value of the South African toys and games market at R9.6bn.

A Growing Gaming Sector:
The growing video games category includes games played purely for enjoyment, games made to promote a brand or product, and serious games that are made and played in the interest of education awareness and research. According to the representative of the interactive entertainment industry in South Africa, Serious About Games, the South African games development industry employs fewer than 300 people locally‚ but was responsible for R100m in annual revenue in 2016, up from R29.7m in 2014. Estimates of South Africa’s consumer market for games range between R1.5bn and R2.2bn.
