The gaming sector is a full grown industry that comprises many globally active companies. Growth potential for this sector is high as more and more countries tend to legalize gambling. Adding to that is the rising number of people that are willing to gamble or take a bet.
Of course the Chinese are an important target group here. Online possibilities further enhance the gaming sector’s growth. All these positive signs set aside, the gaming sector has had some difficulties to endure during the recent crisis years.
The main conclusion here is that the gaming industry needs positive market conditions. Apparently people tend to gamble more when they have some money to spare (one would think the opposite were true).
