The global esports market size is expected to reach USD 6.82 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 24.4% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to grow on account of the increasing popularity of video games, rising awareness regarding Esports, and increasing mobile usage in emerging countries.
In alignment with the dynamic entertainment industry, consumers are demanding interactive, and high-quality gaming content. This demand is expected to extend the entire sports industry’s growth, from small developers and big-budget games to influencers who stream their gameplay. The Esports industry is witnessing revenue growth owing to the significant audience growth and increasing investment from commercial partners. The industry has become more structured with associations and league formats evolving new competition structures. Additionally, the growing mergers and acquisition activities in 2018 have reflected strong market growth.
The popular streaming platforms, such as Twitch has propelled the gaming and Esports toward the mainstream. The Esports tournaments have drawn the attention of celebrities and athletes, which can attract a large audience. Moreover, these sports possess a unique capability to capture young and enthusiastic viewers who are difficult to reach via traditional media. Such capability has created sizeable opportunities for brands to invest in advertising and sponsorships, thereby propelling the market growth. Investors’ interest is likely to increase with the introduction of the more franchise-style league, the centralization of an Esports team, and continued rise in audience. Moreover, the companies are trying to monetize the rising level of interest through various sources.

Apart from sponsorship, the merchandise and ticket sales are integral revenue streams driving the industry growth. The franchisee is embarking on the new sports model that includes city-based teams hosting local events with thousands of fans’ attendance in the stadium. Such events are significantly generating revenues, thereby contributing to the market growth. The Esports apparel market has experienced significant growth in recent years owing to increased retail presence, growing fanbase and league-level merchandise deals. As the teams can individually sell their merchandise to their fans, Esports teams no longer need to rely on winning competition and prize money as a core revenue source. Recently, in 2019 Team Liquid, a Netherland based multi-regional Esports organization, partnered with Marvel Entertainment to offer superhero-themed merchandise including jerseys and t-shirts.
