Mobile gaming refers to digital games designed for mobile devices, such as smartphones, feature phones, personal digital assistants (PDA), pocket and tablet personal computers (PCs), and portable media players. It relies on a fast central processing unit (CPU), graphics processing unit (GPU), large random access memory (RAM), and high-resolution display screens for improving the overall performance of the gaming application. It can be downloaded from the internet or portals of mobile operators via infrared connection, Bluetooth, and memory cards. At present, it is one of the most popular forms of gaming in India on account of the increasing adoption of digitalization.

India Mobile Gaming Market Trends:

The growing utilization of smartphones, along with the rising penetration of the high-speed internet, represents one of the key factors driving the market in India. Moreover, there is an increase in the development of technology in the country. This, coupled with the escalating demand for digital entertainment due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and consequent implementation of lockdown restrictions, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the wide availability of affordable smartphones with better mobile chipsets that provide better performance with less battery drainage and higher screen resolutions is positively influencing the market. Besides this, there is a rise in the adoption of free-to-play games in India to introduce in-app purchases of certain items, enabling players to perform better or pass certain obstacles faster. In line with this, free-to-play games allow players to determine whether they want to invest their time or money, which is catalyzing the demand for mobile gaming across the country. Some of the other factors offering lucrative growth opportunities to key players operating in the market are rapidly changing consumer preferences, rising competition, and untapped demographics.
