Console players pay the most per person
DFC Intelligence analysts have published their latest report on the gaming industry. The report itself costs a considerable $ 3,000, but some are available for free, and this is also quite curious.
So, at the moment there are more than 3 billion gamers all over the world, if we mean by this word everyone who periodically plays any games on any platforms. This is not indicated in the free part, but we can safely say that such an impressive figure is primarily due to the large number of those who play on smartphones.
If we talk about those who play exclusively on smartphones, more than half are from Asia. This region is home to 54% of those who only play mobile games. Another 17% is in Europe, 11% in Latin America, and the rest of the regions take less than 10%.
There is also a diagram for PC players. Here the leader is also China with an indicator of about 300 million people. There are almost 150 million more players in this segment in India, and about 120 million gamers are in Russia, Ukraine and other CIS countries.
The share of gamers who prefer consoles accounts for only 8%, but it is this category that stands out for the highest spending on games per player.
