Global Casino Gaming Market 2017-2021
About Casino Gaming
A casino is more of a tourist attraction and indoor amusement zone. It offers services in hotels, restaurants, and shopping malls. The majority of the revenue comes from gambling. Casinos are concentrated in certain regions because gambling is illegal in several parts of the world. However, a large number of countries are easing regulations to support the growth of casinos because they are becoming very popular and are contributing significantly to a nation's economy in the form of tax.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global casino gaming market to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is shift in consumer gambling habits. There has been a significant change in consumer behavior in the global casino gaming market. The increase in the popularity of gambling apps and social gambling are the major factors expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Vendors are leveraging the growth in internet using population and increasing adoption of mobile devices to develop innovative social gambling games. The number people participating in social gambling is increasing because they are motivated to compete with friends. With increasing number of friends on social media, players will be able to compete with more friends in their social network. Some of the other reasons for the rise in a number of social players are socializing and interacting through games, user-friendly gameplay, and game tournaments.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increased contribution to taxes and GDP. The casino industry contributes significantly to a country's economy. It accounts for 0.45% of the US GDP. The revenue generated by casinos can be used to support economic activities such as building schools and hospitals. The casino industry has the potential to create numerous jobs considering the number of individuals required. For instance, a single large casino in the US will require at least 8-10,000 employees working throughout the year. Casinos have to pay 25% of their revenues as tax, while an average American pays 10% of the revenue earned as tax. As tax is a high source of revenue for countries, governments are trying to ease the regulations for casino gaming.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is difficulty in processing online payments through financial institutions. The processing of customer payments through financial institutions remains a major challenge for vendors. Until 2011, the federal government was liberal in targeting online gaming operators approaching patrons in the US. However, after the implementation of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act of 2006, which prohibits the online gambling platforms from knowingly accepting payments related to a bet or a wager, financial institutions and credit card processors started prohibiting the processing of online gaming transactions to avoid becoming the target of federal investigations. Similarly, the growing instances where bettors are unable to return the money to the financial institutions pose a threat to market. The restrictions on processing credit card transactions made it difficult for patrons to transact from their online gaming accounts. This issue could be resolved only if financial institutions and credit card processors revise their policies.
