However, in some cases, these games may be pre-installed in handheld devices by the mobile operator or by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). Mobile games are available across genres including action, adventure, strategy, simulation, sports, and many more. The mobile gaming industry is likely to witness a higher growth rate during the projection period.

The global mobile gaming market is projected to grow owing to the increasing population that is heavily influenced by technology and is comfortable with using advanced technical systems. This also includes older citizens who have become accustomed to using tablets and smartphones.

In addition to this, advancements in gaming technology have opened new avenues that attract a larger group of audience. This is associated with the manufacturing of smartphones and the development of immersive games.

For instance, modern mobile phones are equipped with powerful processors, high-resolution displays, and advanced graphics capabilities while games offer role-playing options, high-quality graphics, multiplayer & social features, along with offers such as free-to-play models or in-app purchases.

Accessibility to mobile games has also improved significantly as consumers can download all games from mobile app stores which are known to have a highly efficient and streamlined distribution process which makes downloading the games an easier activity. The increasing popularity of mobile games is also driven by the presence of a huge market consisting of casual gamers who are only looking for entertainment options while traveling, during breaks, or to spend their idle time.

The global mobile gaming market may register a loss of revenue owing to limited screen space and control when playing a game on a smartphone or any other portable compact device. This greatly limits user experience and also the range of games that can be played on mobile phones. Touchscreens may not offer seamless control inputs, unlike other gaming forms such as PlayStation or Xbox.

Moreover, the restricted battery life of smart devices causes many people to refrain from playing excessively on mobile phones, especially games with superior graphics or resolution since they tend to drain the phone battery faster.

Integration of mobile games with educational programs may assist in higher growth while revenue generation from mobile games could create challenges for market players.
