PC games, which used to dominate in these countries, began to give way to mobile, according to Niko Partners. Over the past two years, mobile games revenue has grown by $135 million, and PC games – by $35 million.
In 2017-2019, the mobile games market in Malaysia and Singapore began to grow rapidly, and with it increased revenues. In Malaysia, mobile has grown by $ 100 million, and in Singapore during the same time – by $ 35 million.
But the revenues of PC games cannot boast the same rapidity. They continue to grow, but much more slowly, and over the same period increased by only $ 40 million. So, in Malaysia, PC games brought an additional $ 35 million and $5 million in Singapore.
Niko Partners associates the incident with the popularity of mobile esports.
