2020 was a very challenging, yet transformational year for everyone. All industries were affected, each one in a different way. Now it is time to reflect on the passing year and look ahead to what’s next to come. MaxBill analyzed the current state of the gaming market, and assembled a datasheet, mapping out the most prominent routes the industry is likely to take.

We project, that four main factors are going to shape the gaming world in 2021:

  1. eSports are becoming a full-fledged part of the sports industry, gaining more and more fans and participants, and opening up new business opportunities for gamers, agents and producers.
  2. 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technologies are bringing superior connectivity to create new ways of monetization and fuel the interest of more professional gamers and spectators alike.
  3. Gaming-as-a-service is gaining more traction, with new platforms popping up every day.
  4. The social side of the gaming process is getting more attention, due to the COVID19 consequences for everyone’s social life, attracting new inter-sectoral partnerships within the entertainment industry.
