The Indian economy is slowing, but the Indian gaming market isn’t following a similar trend.
No, gaming isn’t just about playing games on your PC or Temple Run and Candy Crush on your phone. Online gaming has revolutionized how the nation looks at playing games they like or making money. The trend of e-sports and online gaming in India has changed the definition of what we call fun.
Be it a cool but addictive game like Ludo King or a spine-chilling game like PUBG; the online gaming industry ensures the games are way more competitive for the passionate gamers— perfect adrenaline rush they are going for.
Now, India has a varied market – with different tastes and expectations.
Online gaming offers features like ad-free gaming, access to games in numerous vernacular languages, and so on.
According to NASSCOM, the Indian mobile gaming market is going to be worth around $1.1 billion by the end of this year. Also, gamers are going to pile up to 628 million.
While India missed out on digital gaming and e-sports before, that’s not so anymore. The online gaming industry has now become a money-making marketing offer – and favored by investors and customers alike.
As we digitalize, the online gambling industry is popping up to follow the above-mentioned trend. All games can be found online from Roulette to slots and Andar Bahar – guides such as Casinocaptain reports.
It’s becoming more accessible to the big masses due to internet connectivity and our natural eagerness to gamble.
Gamers today can access all they like with just a single tap on the mobiles. There is no buying a gaming PC. There is no buying an expensive console. All you need is a smart device, like a smartphone – and internet connectivity.
With Jio changing the internet connectivity scenario in India, everyone has access to gigs of data for cheap.
India has a big appetite for gaming – the country is home to over 100 billion people. With a rising gaming market, there’s also an intensified attention from the investors. Today, you see more startups raising funds to build up niche games. You have several successful games like Real Cricket 19, which has earned more than $1 billion to date.
A survey by YouGov talked about how, for more than one-third of Indians (40% men and 35% women), online gaming is a part of their daily lives. The participants who answered played mobile games at a minimum of five days per week.
Put in artificial intelligence and virtual reality – and you know there is no looking back. Did we add the rise of esports in India? It’s easy to bet on your favorite sports games today, including live matches. No wonder we have more fantasy sports platforms that allow people to win real money while sitting at home – who doesn’t like it?
More gaming will help Indians have fun at home while they stay at home. The other aspect is that they will continue to spend money. For a stagnant economy, the circulation of cash remains important, and gaming offers a two-edged sword. The other aspect is that an increase in activities like gaming also indicates a wider consumer trend, including the fact that Indians are still looking for good entertainment.
