The global cloud gaming market reached a value of US$ 585 Million in 2020. Cloud gaming, also known as gaming on demand, is a form of web gaming that allows direct streaming of games onto the user’s personal computer (PC), mobile device or console. This is achieved by establishing a remote connection with a third-party organization that has the software of the game stored in their server. It enables users to play games online without having to download or purchase the actual software. Cloud gaming also provides an integrated gaming experience on smart devices that allows the user to view another user’s game through live video streaming. It aims to offer smooth and direct game-playing experience to the end users across various devices.
Increasing mobile gaming audience and digitalization in gaming technology are two of the key factors driving the market growth. Furthermore, constant update and maintenance of a backup are some of the benefits provided by cloud gaming. This eliminates the need for keeping physical copies of software and minimizes the overall gaming cost. Moreover, cloud gaming also offers a reduction of data storage and ease of accessibility to the users. All these factors have contributed to the overall popularity of cloud gaming. Additionally, improving network connectivity, availability of instant play games, and download- and installation-free gameplays on almost all operating systems and devices such as Android, Linux, Mac, iOS and Chrome OS are also catalyzing the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global cloud gaming market to exhibit robust growth during the next five years.
