Mobile gaming is expected to continue its rapid growth through 2018 and beyond. 2015 gamers are showing their love for mobile gaming. For every $10 spent on gaming, DigiCaptial expects $3 of that to be on mobile. By 2018, this number is expected to rise to $4 out of every $10. The mobile gaming industry is projected to reach a staggering $29 billion in 2015, and then rising to almost double that amount ($45 billion) by 2018.
There are many reasons for this rise in mobile gaming revenue. The overall software games market is expected to increase from $88 billion in 2015, to $110 billion by 2018 at a rate of 8 percent annually. While not everyone owns a computer or console gaming system, almost everyone owns a mobile phone. This ability to reach more and more people with gaming options has a huge impact on the growth of the mobile gaming market.
