Indian Esports Industry Expected To Touch 11 Billion By 2025: EY Report


As per a report by Ernst & Young (EY), the esports industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 46% and touch ₹11 billion by 2025. The report reads that the figure is expected to reach a fourfold jump from the current industry size and it is expected to reach ₹2.5 billion in 2021. 

With the country’s esports industry growing even faster than the global one, Indian esports events are going full steam with its prize pools. 

The Indian esports prize pool stands at 0.6% as compared to the global prize pools. By 2025, it is expected to reach almost 2%. As per a report titled, ‘Ready. Set. Game On’ the prize pool in India is expected to grow at a CAGR of 66% and will reach ₹1 billion by 2025.

The growth in the prize pool remains one of the most important factors for attracting new players and apart from incentives. Currently, it is estimated that India has 1,50,000 players and around 60,000 teams. As esports is considered to be one of the viable professions for the youth, the number of esports players is expected to grow by a CAGR of 78% by 2025 which scales up to 1.5 million players and 2,50,000 teams.

It is believed that the growth will be propelled by the increase in prize money, localization, regional adaptation, growth of laptops, mobile phones and broadband infrastructure as a whole. As these aspects grow, it is also believed that esports draws more viewership and support from the audience.
