Growth Opportunities

arrow going up

The Global video game market is surpassed $180 Billion USD in 2020. This amount is bigger than the sum of the Global Movie Industry AND North American Sports COMBINED.

Sales boomed during 2020 in all markets, some exceeding 100% growth. The lockdown and lack of almost every other form of entertainment created a sudden surge in gaming creating widespread shortages of video game consoles. The Nintendo Switch notoriously was out stock for several months leading Nintendo to increase its sales target 35%. This sudden explosion in sales was followed by the launch of the New Generation of consoles, namely the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series which pushed video game sales ever higher.

Sony quickly announced a worldwide shortage of its new PS5, which quickly shattered all sales records selling more units in its first 12 hours than the PS4 in its first 12 weeks, a 168x increase. 2021 is expected to continue this trajectory.
