UNITED STATES VIDEO GAMES MARKET FORECAST 2017-2025

The United States (US) video games market was valued at $28891.6 million in 2016 and is expected to reach $36879.2 million by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 2.69% during the forecast period of 2017-2025. The various technological advancements and the fact that these games cater to all ages and gender are the main drivers for the market growth.

The U.S video games market is segmented on the basis of hardware and software. The software segment is currently leading the market and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growth of the hardware segment depends on the in-game events and full-game purchases by the consumers through the digital channels. The high penetration rate of smartphones in the US has made mobile games the most accessible platform for playing video games for many consumers. The mobile games have been highly successful at extracting value from downloadable content and in-game purchases. Console games (digital) saw the second largest growth in video games sales by platform, as the advent of next generation consoles has made digital content far more attainable than in previous year. However, the growth of mobile games is expected to continue limiting the potential for hand-held consoles, as consumers continue to play mobile games on smartphones or tablets.

The major companies in the market include Microsoft Corp, Sony Corp, Electronic Arts Inc, Nintendo, Activision Inc, Ubisoft Entertainment Ltd, Warner Bros Entertainment Inc, King Digital Entertainment Plc, Riot Games Inc, Tencent Holdings Ltd, Netease.Com Inc, Ncsoft Corp, Blizzard Entertainment Inc, Wargaming.Net, and Bandai Namco.
