Mobile Gaming Could Create a $120 Billion Opportunity in 2021

Spending on mobile gaming could grow 20% to $120 billion this year, according to App Annie.

“It’s still bigger than all these other forms of gaming combined, including the console, PC, Mac, and handheld. That is still very true even with the launch of new consoles,” as noted by Venture Beat. “It’s not just young people spending all their time on mobile. In the U.S., Gen Z, millennials, and Gen X/Baby Boomers spent 16%, 18%, and 30% more time per user in their most-used apps in 2020 compared to a year earlier.”

Even better, according to Newzoo, “As mobile continues to be the fastest-growing and most-prevalent gaming platform, more and more IP holders across various entertainment divisions are vying for a slice of the opportunity pie.” That could be a significant catalyst for companies like Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI), Bilibili Inc. (NASDAQ:BILI), Skillz Inc. (NYSE:SKLZ), and Zynga Inc. (NASDAQ:ZNGA).
