Market Trends of NFT Gaming Industry

Increasing Move Towards Metaverse is Expected to Increase the Demand of the Market

  • There are now more options because of the growing "metaverse" notion. Pioneers increasingly see a bottom-up strategy where games emerge from NFT ecosystems rather than NFT interoperability between different games. For example, consider races amongst CryptoKitties or platform-jumping Bored Apes.
  • Additionally, cross-platform transferability would cause designers to need help with player experience and balance. An NFT hardly defines the real utility of game goods consistently; it is merely a symbol of possession. For instance, an NFT of a sword might easily be changed from being reasonably powerful in one game to utterly overwhelming in another.
  • The graphical interface itself has difficulties as well. Many design programs, such as Unreal or Unity, can be used to develop 3D graphic assets for games. These items use exclusive data formats that are connected to certain rendering engines. However, getting them to cooperate can be complicated.
  • According to Cisco Systems, in 2020, consumer data traffic in the online gaming segment is expected to be about 7 exabytes per month, an increase from 1 EB in 2017. The 2017-2022 CAGR of this subsegment amounts to 59 percent.
  • Entrepreneurs have launched solutions in response to the rising demand, making the metaverse an attainable factor. For instance, MetaverseGo stated in June 2022 that it would publish an app to facilitate access to NFT-based games. These games frequently demand players to complete actions that take some time and effort to understand, such as creating a cryptocurrency wallet. With just a mobile number, the app can do some of these tasks for the user.
  • Furthermore, in January 2023, NFT Technologies Inc., one of the leading technology companies, partnered with web3 studio Run It Wild and Sandbox, one of the leading decentralized gaming virtual worlds, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands. The Sandbox announced efforts to expand its ecosystem by onboarding new partners.

North America to hold largest Market share

  • Over the forecast period, North America is anticipated to have significant expansion. The region's growth can be ascribed to major industry companies like Splinterlands, Uplandme Inc., Mythical Inc., and ROKO GAME STUDIOS and the presence of a sizable community of technologically savvy people. Additionally, blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are usually supported by the regulatory framework in North America.
  • Many blockchain game developers are creating their own NFT marketplaces so that players can buy, sell, and trade in-game assets as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) become more popular. As a result, gamers can now monetize their in-game assets on a secondary market, and blockchain game creators in the area also have a new source of income.
  • In addition to the growth of cloud gaming, the virtual server (where all of the games are kept) performs computations such as game scene rendering, game logic processing, video encoding, and video streaming. Several players, including Onlive, G-Cluster, StreamMyGame, Gaikai, and T5-Labs, already provide these commercial cloud gaming services. The traditional gaming market is potentially facing competition from this industry.
  • Unique digital assets, like Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs), which are kept on a blockchain and can be bought or sold securely and openly, are used in collectible games. As a result, players interested in owning and collecting rare or unique digital assets have a compelling value proposition that fuels market expansion throughout the region.
