Market Trends of Gamification Industry

The Retail Segment Holds the Largest Share in the Market

  • The retail industry is an emerging industry that is growing significantly. Retail sales growth has been increasing steadily over the past few years at a healthy pace as customers seek experiences and products that reflect the personal brand they promote on social media. For instance, according to the data from the US Census Bureau, total retail sales in the United States increased from USD 4.72 trillion in 2015 to USD 6.69 trillion in 2021.
  • While gamification can add entertainment and drama to a retailer's marketing or engagement strategy without diverting from the core idea of the business, it can also encourage positive behaviors from customers and employees, leading to a rich brand experience and higher sales.
  • As an HBR article points out, gamification also helps in customer retention, increases customer retention rates by 5%, increases profits by 25% to 95%, and can fetch better business results. Brands can provide scannable codes on the products, and on scanning the code, the customer can avail of a certain number of loyalty points. From driving discovery and engagement to building brand advocacy and loyalty, experiential retailers adopt gamification techniques as part of the customer shopping journey.
  • Retail gamification is an e-commerce trend that is growing rapidly. Online retailers will want to continue creating interactive customer experiences to drive higher sales. Gamification apps have proven to improve leads and sales for several retailers. Gamification can also drive new and recurring customers to a store.
  • By using innovative forms of gamification, retailers find they are better placed to engage with consumers, build brand loyalty, and enhance the overall retail experience. Unsurprisingly, Gen Z is mainly involved with this mechanic. According to Tapjoy, 77% of Gen Zers play mobile games daily. As grocery retailers are keen to build loyalty with this and other segments of the population, it is essential to deploy the right strategy to deliver outstanding results.
  • Retailers and brands further benefit from gamification solutions when these include progress charts on what they've achieved through the platform. This could consist of key metrics for users with details on past purchases, friend referrals, and updates on new product categories of interest. A balance of 'wins' or 'rewards' can further engage an audience and drive commercial benefits. This approach can incentivize customers and keep them returning for more when deployed well.

North America is Anticipated to Hold the Largest Market Share

  • In marketing, North America has a developed market for gamification. However, systems are finding various regional uses for product development and innovation. The region's high penetration of internet and smartphone users has also resulted in increased use of gamification for marketing, particularly through social media integration tools.
  • Various companies have launched large gamification projects since the industry's inception. Consumer brands such as Adobe, NBC, Walgreens, eBay, Panera, and Threadless are among them. Gamification has evolved as a crucial component in B2B firms' consumerization of regional enterprise strategies, such as Oracle, Cisco, and Salesforce.
  • Furthermore, these organizations are drawn to gamification's capacity to increase engagement and loyalty by an average of 30% over time, on-site, through repeat visits, and viral diffusion. Aside from engagement, the income effects of gamification are also significant. Autodesk, an American multinational software business, increased trial usage by 40% and conversion rates by 15%, while Extraco Bank increased client acquisitions by 700%.
  • Furthermore, global corporations are expanding their presence in the North American market to meet the increasing demand. For example, Low6 Sports Gaming Technology collaborated with gaming consultancy SCCG Management in August 2022. The investment and management organization will assist with the identification and facilitation of North American-based sports betting operators interested in leveraging Low6's technology to gain new customers.
