Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Daily fantasy sports is a niche segment in the fantasy sports market in North America. In traditional fantasy sports, the team owners need to play with the same set of players throughout the season. However, daily fantasy sports games allow participants to change their players and play multiple games on a daily basis. Draftkings, FanDuel, DraftDay, and Victive are some of the websites offering daily fantasy sports to end-users. It is expected that the emergence of advanced versions of fantasy sports will propel market growth in the future.”

According to the report, increased internet penetration in the region has created a congenial environment for gamers to engage in a variety of fantasy sports.

In addition, easy access to the internet through smartphones enables participants to play online games irrespective of location and time. All these factors are collectively increasing the spread of fantasy sports among the population in North America.
