Mobile gaming has become a very lucrative business sector globally with application stores playing a vital role as major OTT distribution platform. Mobile gaming app stores primarily distribute non-network mobile gaming apps under downloadable paid, in-app purchase, and/or hybrid models. The mobile game application then uses the mobile device’s platform to run the gaming software.
While Google Play and Apple app stores are market leaders, there are others that play key roles in terms of geographies and language. A major development is the emergence of BRIC countries and emerging independent app stores that run on iOS and Android. Overall global mobile gaming app store revenue is predicted to reach $23.7 billion with a combined CAGR of 21.5% with Apple and Google play holding the lion’s share.

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.
We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.
In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.
We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.
We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.
Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.
Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years: Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.
Step 3 - Validation of Data: The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
