The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in market is increasing e-sports based on TV consoles. TV console is the largest segment of the gaming industry, but when the focus is on e-sports, the impact of TV console gaming is limited. Beyond a small and declining share fighting and sports genre, TV consoles are not preferred for e-sports. In the current market scenario, these genres are negligible compared to more popular MOBA and FPS.
According to the report, one driver in market is increasing penetration of mobile games. The rapid popularity of the MMO genre has indicated that mobile devices could be a good platform for e-sports. The partnering of Vainglory with Twitch and ESL and the high success of the first Clash Royale tournament in April 2016 indicate that mobile gaming is the future for e-sports. One of the major advantages of mobile games is low entry barriers. The penetration of mobile devices is much higher than PCs and consoles. In addition, the increasing number of FTP games played globally allows millions of mobile gamers to compete against each another. Moreover, the mechanical requirements are most important for creating a great mobile experience which can create simple and difficult e-sports games.
