Key Market Dynamics:
  • Market Driver: One of the key factors driving the global gaming industry growth is the growing adoption of AR and VR games. Game developers prefer AR and VR devices to traditional gaming devices. For instance, companies such as Sony and Microsoft are developing gaming platforms using cutting-edge three-dimensional (3D) technologies.  AOL Partner Studio partnered with OMD and Sony and launched Smurfs: The Lost Village game for HoloLens. Microsoft developed RoboRaid, a first-person shooter AR game for HoloLens. 
  • Market Challenge: One of the key challenges to the global gaming industry's growth is the regulation of loot boxes. Players purchase loot boxes to obtain new characters, animations, and cosmetic items, which might not have a direct impact on the gameplay performance. The use of loot boxes in games has been viewed as an unauthorized form of online gambling and an addictive practice, particularly for children.
