In 2020, the mobile gaming industry is predicted to exceed a volume of $52 Billion. Some unforeseen events have worked in favor of the gaming industry. The impact of COVID-19 across different regions has resulted in a significant spike in mobile games, resulting in some major changes in mobile gaming insights.
Various gaming genres, including shooters, gambling, deck-building, arcade, and platformers, have grown by more than 25% between December 2019 and March 2020.
There are various reasons why the gaming category has seen this growth:
- During the lockdown, users have more free time to stay at home and play games.
- With sporting events canceled or postponed, mobile games are replacing them as a source of entertainment.
