Here’s How 2018 Fared and its Good News for the Indian Gaming Scene!


2018 was a year when many Indians for the first time in their lives went online and became a part of the digital transformation that India is currently witnessing.

The graph is set to increase further this year, and 2019 will see a whole bunch of Indians experience the power of the internet for the first time.

Today, a vast majority of Indians are gaining access to the digital revolution which has gripped the country since the last few years.

However, the penetration of mobile internet is yet to hit top gear.

The reason we talked about the growth rate of first-time internet users and the growth ratio that’s set to hit an all-time high in the coming years is that it gives us a bird’s eye view on what India is doing online.

Coming back to the topic, let’s look at some of the things that kept India engaged in 2018 and how the booming online scenario looks like.

How was it in 2018?

A considerable number of Indians, for the first time, gained access to a whole new library of games.

Unlike its western counterparts, India is still at a very nascent stage when it comes to the number of online gamers.

But, that’s good news because it gives the gaming industry a chance to tap into the millions of people who would be going online for the first time in the years to come.

Apart from the very popular PUBG, that’s hit the Indian gaming scene like a Tsunami; card games like online free rummy and Poker remained one of the most popular games in 2018.

It is because a more significant number of the Indian population still loves playing card games more than games from other genres such as action, shooters or role-playing games.

India is already one of the top five countries for mobile gaming in the world, the industry is already worth over $890 million.

According to Nasscom it is estimated that India’s mobile games market will be worth $1.1 billion by 2020, and the number of users projected is set to become 628 million by then.  

The driving force behind this massive surge in the numbers was the estimated addition of 530 million smartphone users, making 2018 one of the best years regarding gaming so far.
