We’re continuing our posting of research data and today’s turn goes to video games industry. Venturebeat published a post on games data and the information filled video caught our eye. The video continues on the same path as our previous posts on the size of the app market (44 billion downloads by 2016) and game fundings and acquisitions in 2010.
The video is put together by AggreGame to show big the video gaming market actually is. VentureBeat also dug out some other interesting figures that aren’t in the video. These are regarding the virtual goods market. Inside Network states, that in 2011 the US based virtual goods market is expected to reach $2.1 billion in 2011 up from $1.6 billion in 2010.
Another figure worth mentioning, thanks to VentureBeat digging this out, shows the strength of the mobile games market and its growth. According to Digi-Capital, mobile games will generate half of industry revenue by 2014, estimated at $44 billion.
