New IDATE report explores the World Video Game Market [INFOGRAPHIC]


IDATE predicts that the global video game market will continue to enjoy steady growth, for two reasons in particular:
·       start of the life cycles of the latest generations of handheld and home consoles,
·       remarkable growth of the games on mobile devices and online games segments.

Laurent Michaud, Head of IDATE’s Video Game Business and the report’s Project Manager, says, “growth will be significant up to 2015, after which it will begin to slow as new generation handheld and home consoles reach the end of their life cycle.”

IDATE analyses the latest developments in video games and has identified eight key trends that will shape the market in 2014:
1.      The arrival of new home consoles fuels dynamic growth over the period 2013-2017
2.      Moderate financial performances for traditional players compared to players in mobile and online gaming
3.      Reduction of blockbusters, as they are more and more expensive to produce
4.      Nearly two thirds of the income of the video games market comes from the dematerialisation of distribution and online payment practices
5.      Transition to Free2Play (F2P)
6.      Ubiquity takes hold for good
7.      Video gaming and connected TV as a natural convergence
8.      The tablet explosion
