There’s big money in gaming: the games market is expected to reach nearly $152B in revenue this year, and over $180B in 2021.
Most of this growth will be driven by a growing interest in mobile gaming around the world. In 2019, mobile gaming will account for 54% of total gaming revenue, and by 2021, that figure is expected to reach 59% — or more than $100B.
