Key Market Trends & Challenges: 

The increasing emergence of cloud gaming is a major factor supporting the gaming market share growth. Cloud gaming technology enables users to stream video games from the web. The increasing popularity of social media and mobile gaming is supporting the growth of cloud gaming. Cloud gaming services have the potential to reach non-core gamers that play games on social media and mobile devices because of the cost-effective price structure of cloud gaming. Cloud gaming eliminates the need for high-quality graphic cards in PCs and mandatory PC upgrades and offers an enhanced gaming experience on any device that has average processing capability. Thus, the emergence of cloud gaming will drive the growth of the global gaming market during the forecast period.

The regulation over loot boxes will be a major challenge for the gaming market. Loot boxes are digital boxes or packages consisting of in-game items that are sold for money or in-game currency. The use of loot boxes in games has been viewed as an unauthorized form of online gambling and an addictive practice, particularly for children. As a result, governments in many countries, such as China, Japan, Belgium, and Australia, have introduced strict regulations regarding the use of loot boxes during the design and release of games in those countries. These regulations might have a negative impact on the market growth as loot boxes account for a major chunk of in-app purchases.
