The Indian digital gaming industry is growing rapidly, with behemoths like Alibaba backed-Paytm, Tencent, Youzu and Nazara investing in it. One of the top five countries for mobile gaming in the world, the industry is already worth over $890 million. And with the demand for games on an upward curve, the country now has more than 250 game development companies, up from a mere 25 in 2010, with at least two startups coming up every month.
Estimates suggest that India's mobile games market will be worth $1.1 billion by 2020, and number of users projected to become 628 million by then.
The rise in the popularity of gaming is partly due to the increased accessibility that the public has to them; at the tap of a screen, one can download games onto a smart device. Evidently, the increase in mobile gaming has run in parallel to the rise in smartphone adoption in India, which is set to have 530 million smartphone users this year. Many game developers such as Moon Frog, 99Games, PlaySimple and Mech Mocha are capitalizing on the growth in smartphone usage to build their businesses.
