Juniper Paints Rosy Picture For 2019

Forecasts $13.3 Billion in tablet game revenues

The latest report, "Mobile & Handheld Games: Discover, Monetise, Advertise 2014–2019", from Juniper Research forecasts worldwide revenues for tablet games will exceed $13.3 Billion by 2019.
Other interesting summations include:
– Industry growth will be driven by improved mobile broadband penetration, convenience, improved storage and graphic capabilities.
– The next year may be critical for smaller, independent games developers as greater funding will be required to achieve consumer awareness in a crowded marketplace with crowdfunding representing an increasingly popular option.
– Strong growth in monetisation of smartphone games across emerging markets, with carrier billing deployments increasingly facilitating storefront payments in countries with lower banked penetration rates.
– With micro-apps now being embedded in messenger services, these may serve as an additional delivery channel for games in the medium term, stimulating further growth.
– A sister report titled "PC & Console Games: Trends, Opportunities, and Vendor Strategies 2014-2019", predicts a shift to digital game software distribution and adaptation to elements of the free-to-play business model are inevitable due to declining sales.
– Advertisements are becoming increasingly key in revenue generation, as only about six per cent of mobile games will be paid for at point of download in 2019.
– Diversified gaming offerings have resulted in a sharp uplift in the scale and session length of social/casual games amongst wider demographics.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
