three people playing pure-skill mobile games together

Pure-skill Mobile Games: What You Need to Know About This Investment Opportunity

Twenty years ago, the notion that one could make money simply by being good at mobile games would have seemed absurd. But times have changed, and thanks to companies like Riot Games — publisher of League of Legends and Valorant — and the early surge in popularity of Major League Gaming, online gaming and eSports today represents a multibillion dollar industry.

So, what does the data say about mobile gaming industry penetration and growth? In 2021, the mobile gaming industry became the top-grossing gaming segment worldwide, reaching 2.65 billion users, with Asia and Europe coming in first and second with 1.29 billion and 551.7 million users respectively. In that same year, the industry generated a staggering US$93.2 billion in revenue, a 7.3 percent year-over-year increase that represented 52 percent of 2021’s global consumer spending in gaming.

It’s clear that mobile gaming is a rapidly growing segment. Professional gamers have pulled in salaries of six or even seven figures. The association between gaming skill and monetary return is well established by this point. Add to that the rise in popularity of video game streaming and video game culture in general, and it’s clear why mobile gaming has become so ingrained in our society. All of this has led to the birth of a new genre — pure-skill games. To understand why this represents such a compelling opportunity for investors, one must first understand what the term means.
