Video gaming has come a long way from the humble arcades in the 1980s to the industry giant it is today. Mobile gaming is a segment that is continuing to see larger growth ever since the advent of the smartphone. Globally, mobile gaming will generate over US $33 billion in incremental sales over 2018 to 2023, supported by continued growth in mobile devices, convenience and affordability.
