The gaming industry has always existed in different forms, be it board games or gladiator tournaments, or coin-operated machines in gaming zones.
These eventually evolved into 64-bit game consoles, PlayStations, and finally HD realistic games on our mobile phones. Companies are gearing up to be a part of the gaming industry, especially with the gaming experience that can come with Metaverse.
The Indian gaming industry is experiencing strong growth in terms of engagement, genres, monetization, and the number of online gamers. With India emerging as one of the top gaming markets in the world, India is emerging as an investment opportunity and talent hub for the world.
According to a recent BCG Sequoia India report, the gaming industry in India accounts for 1% of the global gaming market and is growing rapidly. Currently, it generates $1.5 billion in revenue and is expected to grow to $5 billion by 2025.
