Mobile gaming to push industry above $100 billion by 2017

AB #1 App of all time

Research company Digi-Capital has today released their Global Games Investment Review for 2014. The review states that mobile and online gaming has become such a huge force worldwide that it could grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.6 percent, ultimately accounting for around 60 percent of software market share in 2017 while generating $60 billion of the predicted $100 billion for the overall gaming industry.

While North America remains important, Digi-Capital expects Asia and Europe combined to represent about 80 percent of the mobile and online gaming sectors. Asia, in particular, continues to show its muscle when it comes to mobile and online gaming – all good news if you’re looking at branded games to connect with Asian consumers.
