Kstart’s summit on the future of gaming is the perfect opportunity for startups looking to up their game. Don’t miss it!


Contrary to popular belief, playing is serious business, at least as far as the gaming industry is concerned.

With greater penetration of smartphones and handheld devices, more access to reliable and fast internet, and significant improvement in the micropayments infrastructure, the online gaming industry is poised for big growth. According to a recent report by Nasscom and App Annie, last year, the global mobile gaming market alone was worth $37 billion. Of this, India’s share as the 19th largest market was $523 million, a mere 1.6 percent.

This is small change, considering that India has had a rich and ancient tradition of games. In fact, legendary wars have been waged based on the outcome of a game of dice. In Q2 2016, India ranked fifth globally in terms of game downloads, and is soon expected to surpass Russia and Brazil to become one of the top three gaming markets in the world.

There is tremendous headroom for growth in this space, especially for startups looking to disrupt things and change the game.
