|Mobile Gaming Will Be
the Big Money Maker in the Industry.
Mobile gaming is gaining popularity and could eventually become
the leader in the gaming industry. Mobile could grow into the single biggest
With more and more people around the globe buying and
using smartphones, it should come as no surprise that mobile games will
continue to grow in popularity. In fact, some believe that with the current
growth rate of mobile gaming, it is possible that it will eventually outpace
the rest of the gaming industry.
The popularity of mobile gaming could
result in mobile growing into the largest market sector by 2018. According to
research from Digi-Capital, the total spending on gaming software across all
platforms will hit $88 billion in 2015. The intelligence firm also predicts
that this number will jump 8% annually and, by 2018, will exceed $110 billion.
Furthermore, the company believes that mobile will drive this growth more than
any other sector because, without including sales from consoles like
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, spending on tablets and smartphones will already
produce more revenue than console games.
the report from Digi-Capital, the companys founder and managing director,
Tim Merel, explained that revenue of mobile games will experience a 15% annual
growth from $29 billion this year to $45 billion by 2018. Moreover, the company
predicts that by 2018, Asia will take over 50% of all mobile games revenue, as
it has dominated mobile games revenue since 2013.
In addition to
traditional gaming, mobile gambling is another type of entertainment that is
steadily gaining ground among mobile users. In the article written by

Mobile Casinos Leading the Way, it is made clear that With so
many people having access to mobile devices with 3G or Wi-Fi access to play at
an online casino, the demand for mobile gambling and the enjoyment of such an
offering is plentiful.
In essence, the demand is there and it is
a demand that continues to grow. This demand will need to be met if gambling
operators and software developers want to stay relevant and successful. Those
who dont stay on top of the latest trends in the mobile world, will get
left behind. Plain and simple.
