Gaming

With over 400 million+ gamers and ~100 million paying users, India’s gaming ecosystem is ripe for disruption. Young population and a large gamer base has positioned the Indian gaming market to reach $7bn by 2026, 3x the size of Bollywood. This presents several opportunities that can be capitalized by Indian game developers and publishers.

  • Growth of the Esports ecosystem – players, tournaments, streaming and organizers.
  • Development of a publisher ecosystem in India to promote the growth of local game development.
  • Gaming infrastructure platforms for faster content generation, game development, and newer revenue channels.
