Global Game Market Expected to Grow by Over 9 Percent This Year, China’s Market to Outgrow the US Market
According to Newzoo’s upcoming 2015 Global Games Market Report, the global games market is expected to grow quite a lot from last year to this year.
The report explains that the market will grow by 9.4 percent, moving from $83.6 billion last year to $91.5 billion this year. It also shows that China’s game market is expected to grow by a whopping 23 percent this year, meaning it could move it past the US and make it the largest market in the world. The numbers show that by the end of the year, China’s market is thought to reach $22.2 billion, while the US market is thought to reach $22 billion.
Whether or not that will actually happen remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to read the full 2015 Global Games Market Report when it releases in June.
