Posted by facto on October 15th, 2019
Europe is forecasted to be one of the prominent digital gaming markets in the world. Digital games has always been a popular means of entertainment for the people of the region. Mobile gaming is increasingly becoming popular in the region where console gaming generates the maximum revenue. Though mobile gaming is expected to cannibalize the market shares of Console as well as PCs to some extent, console games are projected to generate the most revenues throughout the forecast period of 2018-2023. The Europe Digital Gaming market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.7% leading to a revenue of USD 30.41 Bn by 2023.
Europe presents a very strong digital gaming market with preferences for all gaming platforms- PC, mobile, and console. Most of the revenues of digital games in 2017 came from console gaming, followed by PC and mobile gaming. Console gaming in Europe is fuelled by higher disposable income of gamers compared to other developing regions of the world. Mobile gaming is expected to have an increase in the market share in the forecasted years as Western Europe and Eastern Europe have had slower adoptions of mobile gaming so far. Hence, the growth rate for mobile games in this region is expected to be higher than PC games.
By platforms, the market is segmented into PC games, mobile games, and console games. Among these segments, the console games is the fastest growing segment, as well as the biggest revenue generator for 2017.
By countries, the market is divided into EU5 and the Rest of Europe. EU5 is the highest revenue-generator among the two.

Therefore, the rise in affordability of the people of the region is expected to result in higher expenditure on digital games in the coming years and thereby increase adoption of digital gaming.
