Industry outlook

The UK and Spanish console markets (hardware, software, accessories and console digital) are worth c US$2.2bn and US$1.2bn, respectively. The traditional cycle that has peaked every six years since 2000 seems to be moving to shorter intervals. This could signal structural changes analogous to the mobile and PC markets. In addition, the global esports market, currently US$0.9bn, is forecast to grow to US$1.7bn by 2021.
