On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Presentation is a joint effort between IDC and App Annie, a leading global provider of mobile app market data and analytics. The deck has three sections: an overview of key trends in the mobile, PC, and console gaming markets in the 2019-2020 period; a deep dive into the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic had had on mobile gaming over the first four months of 2020; and a summary of key mobile in-game ad dynamics in 2019.

"It's clear that while the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a huge amount social and economic upheaval, as well as a tragic loss of life, that all of the self-quarantining behavior and stay at home orders by governments have led to a surge in smartphone and tablet gaming globally," says Lewis Ward, IDC's research director of Gaming and AR/VR. "In fact, the COVID-19 pandemic is driving up usage in a broad range of mobile app types as people and companies do their best to adapt to the 'new normal'."
