Global Gaming Statistics

The global digital media market has consistently grown, with gaming accounting for the biggest share of market revenues. In 2020, the global online gaming market generated approximately 21.1 billion U.S. dollars in revenues, translating to a record 21.9 % growth compared to the previous year. This boost was, of course, due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, which forced many people to stay at home and turn to digital avenues of entertainment and find new channels to connect with others. There are an estimated 1 billion online gamers worldwide, with China, South Korea, and Japan having the biggest online gaming reach among the population. In 2025, online gaming audiences are projected to surpass 1.3 billion.
