The mobile revolution shows no sign of slowing up as global market size is forecast to almost double from $13bn in 2013 to $22bn in 2015 (Gartner). The demogrqphics of gamers has changed with the average age of a gamer today being 37 and 42% are women. Furthermore, the ubiquity of connected devices, global uptake of smartphones and widespread access to the internet mean that you have access to literally millions more players today than a few years ago - and that figure is only rising.

But an array of challenges still remain:

  • Platform ubiquity - iOS and Android are the main contenders, but while iOS by design make publishing across Apple devices effortless, Android requires more work - especially when entering the lucrative AsiaPac and LatAm regions where hardware specification Is often very basic
  • Business models - 95% of mobile gaming revenue comes from F2P, it is no surprise that all the major players trying to enter this lucrative market. But converting free players to payers is not easy, Clash of Clans converts 10% of players to payers, while other titles can struggle to convert 1% - and sustaining spending over a longer period is another challenge altogether
  • Player acquisition and retention - Player acquisition remains a huge challenge and producing successive hits is tough, but companies like King and Supercell are defying trends by building brands and retaining audiences across titles. A core understanding of their target audience and the analytics tools to match are central to their success, both will be at Mobile Gaming USA
  • Emerging markets - Entering developing markets carries inherent risks: Potential for regulation in China, the need for a trusted local partner and localization (of content and language). However, as emerging markets outpace developed economies, the benefits can outweigh the risks

Fortunately, the industries key business leaders are coming together to answer these challenges and more, during two days intense discussions and networking at the USA’s leading Mobile Gaming Summit.
