This, in turn, is expected to positively influence the market growth. Apart from this, significant growth in cloud adoption and the emergence of the 5G network creates a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, there has been a rising demand for high-end mobile devices among the masses for gaming applications since these devices offer high picture, sound, and graphics quality. Besides this, the growing popularity of online mobile gaming tournaments globally fuels the market. Additionally, the advent of advanced technologies such as VR/AR and haptic feedback devices have drastically improved user experience, thus offering numerous opportunities for mobile game developers. Other factors, including inflating disposable income levels and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are also providing a boost to the market.
