Globally, the gaming sector clocked $100 billion in revenues out of which mobile gaming generated $37 billion in 2016 and India had a mere 1.6% market share with estimated revenues of $523 million. This shows that there is tremendous headroom for growth. This growth will be enabled by increased penetration of affordable smartphones, reliable and fast connectivity infrastructure, as well as greater enablement and improvement of the micro-payments infrastructure.
