This steady growth made India stand in the 4th position among the largest gaming markets globally. And that is not it, this industry is expected to generate a revenue of US $ 3.9 Billion by the end of the year 2025.
Reason for this Immense growth:
Digging deep into the factors that can be responsible for this sudden surge in the Indian Gaming market, a huge part of this success goes to the start-up & Indie companies creating fun & interactive games for their Indian and global users. Another important factor is the gradual spike in mobile game players. Since internet speed in India has been improved, Indian users adopted the online gaming culture spontaneously which was easily available through their mobile phones.
An entertainment source without expensive consoles and setup actually planted a dream of making video games a career among these rookie players. This ultimately laid the foundation of the golden future of the Gaming Industry that we are currently living in. There are more than 450 game companies currently accelerating the pace with an expectation to bring India among the top 3 largest gaming markets across the world in the next 5 years.
India is becoming the hub for AAA Game companies:
The rise in AAA game production houses in India is another big reason for the flourishing of the Indian Gaming Market. MultiNational Game companies like EA, Ubisoft, Sumo Video Games, Rockstar Games , and many more already set up their chains in leading metropolitan cities of the country as they have foreseen this immense growth and wanted to be a part of this golden future.
