Capitalising on Gaming's Meteoric Rise in Asia-Pacific


The games industry has already grown larger than music, box office, and home entertainment (DVD + Streaming) combined. With COVID-19 confining us to our homes driving up online activities, international gaming experts, IDG Consulting (IDG), forecasts that by end of 2020, the games sector will even outgrow linear TV globally. This is no surprise. The industry is no longer about teenagers spending hours in front of screens as the advances in game playability on smartphones have led to an explosion of casual gamers who are older and spending more time and money on games than ever before. eSports has also stepped into the mainstream, turning pro gamers into the new superstars of today - they are athletes, movie stars and pop idols all rolled up into one - and their popularity further fuels the demand for gaming.


As we move to the “new normal”, the game sector offers lots of growth opportunities. But, what are the critical impacts from COVID-19 and other trends that investors, games developers/ publishers and distributors should note?
