This IDC Market Analysis Perspective (MAP) provides a high-level view of the video game industry in 2023 and forecasts key market segments through 2027. Typical weekly hours of gameplay, retail spending, and a range of other metrics are examined across mobile, PC, and TV screens. Revenue forecasts in four geographic regions are included for the three main branches of gaming through 2027.
The deck is a primer for topics examined in more depth in separate IDC studies. Key themes include which market segments are growing relatively quickly (and why), where market vendors should invest or invest with caution moving forward, and the commonalities among 2023's most popular and lucrative games.
