Growth in the global games market continues. This is the hardly surprising result of a new study and forecast by the market researchers at IDC and data.ai. In the current “IDC Gaming Report”, however, they are much more specific and for the first time give a concrete forecast for the development of the current year with a market volume of 222 billion dollars. The predicted growth is once again supported by a strong development of the mobile games segment. Its share is expected to reach 61 percent or a volume of 136 billion dollars in 2022. The sales volume of mobile games is therefore more than three times that of consoles or PC games, which are estimated to be worth $42 billion and $40 billion respectively.
