Apps drive mobile gaming

Market will be worth $10 bil by 2014

LONDON — The rapid uptick in apps games continues to drive the mobile gaming industry, which is on track to be worth $10 billion worldwide by 2014, according to a report from Futuresource Consulting.

In 2010, the Apple App Store alone, excluding iPad, is forecast to generate around $1.7 billion in games revenues globally, accounting for almost 30% of the mobile gaming market. Traditional mobile games — mainly downloaded from mobile network operator stores — account for 60%, with other apps stores, in particular the Android market, repping the remaining 10%. — Steve Clarke
