The mobile gaming industry has been undergoing dynamic changes in the recent years due to ongoing technological advancements coupled with the rising demand for interactive entertainment on portable devices. Minimal capital requirements have led to an influx of mobile game developers, causing an abundance of mobile games across iOS and Android platforms. The diverse consumer base of these games has paved way for an array of new revenue streams and integrated payment solutions ranging from subscription fees, pay-per-play, and in-app purchases royalties to a premium account and upgrade remunerations.

The rise of augmented and virtual reality in the gaming industry has given an opportunity to the developers to come up with new mobile gaming content incorporating these new forms of technologies. Moreover, as the competition in the market intensifies, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the developers to generate brand loyalty and sustain a revenue generating consumer base. However, provision of secure payment gateways, improving internet accessibility across the globe and availability of a diverse range of gaming options are expected to continue driving the industry towards growth in the coming future.

In terms of gaming genre, strategy and brain games had the largest share in 2016 and these games are expected to witness a strong growth rate during the forecast period. Their large revenue can be attributed to the widespread success of games such as Clash of Clans, Game of War: Fire Age and Puzzles and Dragons, which are top grossing games in most of the countries, says the research.

According to Rachit Jain, analyst at BIS Research,  "Asia-Pacific (APAC) mobile gaming market is expected to witness the fastest growth throughout the forecast period. Improving internet connections and availability of low cost smartphones will be the primary growth drivers in the region. For instance, the Indian mobile gaming market is poised to grow with the faster CAGR of 28% in coming 5 years. The rising level of income of middle-class population and search for alternative modes of recreation by the growing youth population of the two of the largest developing nations, India and China will further escalate the growth of mobile gaming market."
