The success of PS4 and Xbox One hasn’t managed to beat back mobile’s growing dominance of the games market, says research firm Newzoo.
The company estimates that console’s revenue share of the UK games industry will fall below 50 per cent for the first time ever this year, dropping to 48 per cent.
While the console sector will lose overall market share, it will still see revenue rise by 1.1 per cent versus 2014.Meanwhile, handheld revenue is predicted to drop 25.5 per cent, with PC falling by 4.7 per cent.
Personal screen gaming revenue (smartphones and watches) is expected to rise 4.4 per cent in 2015 to claim 17 per cent of the total market. Tablet – the fastest-growing games category – will see revenue jump 10.1 per cent.
“Mobile will take 28 per cent of all game spending in the UK this year as the market matures and growth rates slow down,” observed Newzoo CEO Peter Warman.
