TwitterChat: Will the tremendous growth also spur gaming as a career choice?

To all those parents who have been scolding their kids for “wasting” their time playing mobile games/ video games/ online games – gaming can actually be a very lucrative career choice for the youth in an already shrinking job market.

First of all, some key stats – according to industry reports, the global gaming market is pegged to growth at 9.5% CAGR by 2025, taking the valuation to $204.6 billion. HP India Gaming Landscape Report 2021 reveals that 90 per cent of the respondents consider gaming to be a viable career option. The Report also states that women are ahead of men in their choice of adopting gaming as a career option, with 84% of all women respondents responding in the affirmative, as compared to 80% of men. Gamers in Tier 2 markets are more open to gaming as a career choice than those in the Metro markets.

What kind of avenues does gaming as a career choice open up? How will it grow the gaming landscape? How marketers and publishers plan to tap into this growing opportunity?
