Mobile gaming in India is skyrocketing as an industry?
The recent ban on the immensely popular PUBG has shone the spotlight on India’s online gaming market and its rapid penetration and growth.
The global gaming industry has been booming for a while. To give a sense of the scale, it is estimated to make close to $159.3 billion in revenues this year, and revenues are estimated to cross $200 billion by 2023.
In India, the scope is no less astounding. The recent ban on the immensely popular PUBG has shone the spotlight on India’s online gaming market and its rapid penetration and growth. Over the past years, apart from PUBG, mobile games ranging from online card games like Indigo Rummy to online fantasy sporting games have gained immense popularity.
In fact, a report by KPMG and Google estimates that India will have 310 million active gamers by 2021 in a market that will be worth $1 billion. Among these online mobile games that are raking in the cash, card games such as rummy and poker have also become extremely popular.
