Why is Now The Right Time To Start Your Mobile Gaming Business?
MAY 08, 2015
Mobile game development is in its golden age. The demand for mobile games is growing at a spectacular pace of 15 percent a year. For the first time in their history, sales of mobile games are going to surpass console games sales in 2015. The mobile game market currently stands at $29 billion. Experts predict that it will increase to $45 billion in less than three years. For businesses and entrepreneurs, if there was a time to start your own game publishing business, it is now.
There are so many reasons to contact a mobile app development company and get your own game created. Expanding market is one. Another is solid fundamentals. There are three main things that are making mobiles popular among gamers and these things are not going away anytime soon.
Unlike consoles, mobile games are portable. You can play wherever you can use your smartphone, be it bed, while waiting for public transport, or in the backseat of your car. Once used to such flexibility, it is unlikely that gamers will really think of switching back to unwieldy consoles.
Mobile games are inexpensive. In fact, a lot of them are free. In contrast, a console demands a big investment. You can get your own game developed and sell it at a fraction of the cost of a big gaming console and still make a handsome profit.
A few years ago, someone published a study on gamers. They found out that the average console-owning gamer was 31 years old. Though there are no easy-to-find statistics on mobile gaming, one can easily see that a lot of mobile gamers are young. And this is unlikely to change in foreseeable future because there is a “mobile games are cool” trend.
Mobile games are the future. Now is the right time to team up with a mobile app development company and make it big in the multibillion dollar mobile gaming industry.
