APAC Video Games Market Analysed by Euromonitor in Its New Study Available at MarketPublishers.com29 Nov 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – APAC represented the largest and most rapidly growing video games market as of 2016, as mobile gaming keeps on witnessing huge growth in the region. The rapid penetration and widespread use of smartphones alongside the uptake of F2P gaming has brought video games to an enormously mainstream audience. Whilst this uptake in the mobile sector will continue perform as the major driver of the APAC video games market to 2021, novel technologies (like Nintendo Switch and AR/VR headsets) could reassert the impact of video game hardware.
The make-up of the dominant companies in the APAC region is shifting at a rapid pace, as robust growth in the mobile gaming sector results in the sharp reduction of console-based game makers’ share. Additionally, within markets like China, South Korea and Japan, several companies have, either from internal development or via acquiring other firms, created major mobile gaming companies that publish manifold popular local titles.
