Many gamers have been doing their very best to poke fun at mobile games, but they fail to realize the amount of money is being generated from smartphones and other mobile devices. Game developers will never stop, especially since the mobile eSport market generated $15.3 billion in revenue back in 2018.
Whats interesting about this is the fact that eSports has generated 25 percent of mobile game revenies, and if this continues, it will surely rise in the coming years. In fact, mobile eSports video games is on the verge of becoming the fastest growing sector in the gaming industry.
"Mobile esports tournaments will engage consumers not only as spectators but as participants," said Niko Partners managing partner Lisa Hanson.
"This will create mass market participation and engagement, growing a far larger audience for esports and generating new opportunities for revenue.
"We will see esports transition from fewer large tournaments to the addition of large numbers of smaller tournaments that are open to everyone who wants to compete."
As it stands right now, China is the largest market for both mobile and PC eSport titles, which is not surprising since the country has over 1 billion people and a growing economy despite the trade war with the United States right now.
