Games sector value

This quote came in an email today. Looks like it might be interesting to look at the mobile games sector sometime soon….

“Global games industry to hit a peak value of $58.4 billion in 2007”

“The highest growth will come from broadband, mobile and interactive TV, which are together forecast to generate revenues of $20.6 billion by 2010 – up from $3.8 billion in 2004.”

Consoles – the console market is, and will continue to be, the dominant platform throughout the global industry

Handheld – this sector will see growth for both hardware and software sales, driven by the recent launch of new handhelds from both Nintendo and Sony

PC – PC gaming will continue to decline – with revenues falling to half the 2001 total by 2010 – due to factors such as new generation consoles boasting the same functionality traditionally associated with the PC

Broadband – the rapid take-up of broadband, as well as interest in services such as Xbox Live are helping drive the broadband games market

Mobile – as 2.5G & 3G mobile services spread, the mobile games market is due to accelerate extremely quickly over the next few years Interactive TV – still only a small sector within the industry, interactive TV gaming will continue to gain popularity with the spread of digital TV services
