Another sign of the times
The global video games market will expand to three times the size of the recorded music market by 2014, according to a new study highlighting further profound shifts in consumers’ and advertisers’ media spending over the next five years.
Growth in online, mobile and casual gaming will drive a compound annual growth rate of 10.5 per cent in consumer spending on video games – the strongest growth in the media sector, says PwC’s annual Global Entertainment and Media Outlook.
This will take the industry’s revenues from $51bn to $84bn by 2014, PwC forecasts, contrasting with revenues of $28bn for recorded music.
