Casinos & Gambling Activities Progressively Shift to Asia, Says Aruvian’s R’search in Its Report Available at MarketPublishers.com02 May 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The world casinos and gaming industry currently holds down a net worth of more than USD 450 billion. Since early 2008, the gambling mecca has progressively moved from Las Vegas and Atlantic City to Macao in China due to a number of reasons including recent casino openings in the city. Going forward, this noticeable shift of the industry activities to Asia will likely continue, with more casino openings set to take place in other regions of Asia in the short run. Singapore, with its two mega-casino developments, has already raised a fuss in terms of competing with Las Vegas. However, China’s government bodies, together with other Asian nations, restrict access of locals to their casinos, thus making these casinos extremely reliant upon gaming revenue from foreign gamblers and notably VIP tourists.
The industry growth is boosted by the introduction of legal provisions by governments that previously banned casinos to operate and the removal of a number of bans on overseas investments and casino ownership. The market has seen the emergence of many key entertainment elements attached to appeal to both domestic and foreign guests.
Caesars Entertainment Corp., Ladbrokes Plc, Las Vegas Sands Corp., MGM Resorts International, among others, are the leading players in the market.
