COVID-19 Mobile Gaming Market Structure:

MRFR’s impact analysis on covid-19 states that with more people staying at home, more games and apps are being downloaded. Since SARS-CoV-2 is expected to continue, the demand for social networks as well as mobile games is only presumed to skyrocket across homes. The working from home strategy and the shutting down of universities and schools has led to higher demand for mobile gaming. No doubt that with people being quarantined, there is now more time to play mobile games, as a result of which mobile games have zoomed up in the app stores and have gained top ranking. Considering the short term impact, experts predict top notch growth for the gaming industry and in turn, mobile gaming. For instance, a recent global study based on the COVID-19 analysis reveals that in the EMEA & LATAM region, mobile games have become one of the main sources of entertainment, with close to 85% of the total consumers in the region are now into mobile gaming to pass time during social distancing.

Post novel coronavirus, businesses everywhere have experienced a significant transition, where the ICT industry can be the biggest gainer in the end.
