State of Video Game Worldwide. The global video game market is projected to post a CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period to 2018-end. One of the key trends in the market is that traditional games are facing fierce competition from online and mobile gaming segments. The APAC region dominates the world’s video game market. More than 50% of total market revenues came from dematerialised distribution and online pay practices as of 2014. Over 60% of total revenue generated from sales of software will likely be from dematerialised sales in 2018. The home console game market is about to reach saturation.

The research study details the structure and examines the issues at play in the mobile gaming market, investigates the decisive forces – technologies, regulatory landscape, consumption, and the leading players. Particular emphasis in the report is given to market assessments as well as forecasts and projections.
Consolidation in Europe. The political issues, a string of crises and the necessity to deploy ultra-fast broadband networks are creating conditions for the formation of mergers. Consolidation is consequently a defensive means of responding to the unfavourable market conditions in Europe to take advantage of synergies, resume growth, and also find additional resources to cover the investment required to deploy new-gen networks. The consolidation processes in the market are driven by the worsening economy of operators with markets under pressure, a relatively fragmented industry, the ample funding requirements for next generation networks; fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), a number of regulatory initiatives that are primarily encouraging infrastructure sharing. In spite of rising penetration of mobile and fixed broadband communications and booming data traffic, telecom services revenues in Europe have been decreasing since 2008. The report reviews the consolidation trends in the region’s telecom market, identifies key drivers and limiters of consolidation, examines the regulatory and political environment, etc.
