According to a 'Research and Markets' survey, the global mobile gaming market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6 per cent to reach $48 billion in 2014. Around 50 per cent of mobile gamers are in the age group of 22-35 years, followed by 13-21 years and 35+ years (35 per cent).

Sanker further added that there are about 800 million mobile subscribers in India. Mobile gaming is the fastest-growing segment for games and with more smartphones flooding the markets, game apps stores are becoming increasingly popular. Mobile gaming is expected to reap up to 17.1 billion in revenues by 2015 in India.

“Though, globally, the acceptance levels are more than encouraging, markets like the US, the European Union, India, China and Brazil are the most important markets in terms of new mobile gamers. A number of underlying factors contribute to this growth. First of all, the evolving mobile technology environment and better and faster wireless networks as well as more advanced and easy-to-use handsets that are enhancing the user experience,” Sanker said.
