The Indian gaming industry is at the cusp of a major transformation. With a population of 1.3 billion people and two-thirds of them below the age of 35, making it the world’s largest youth population, the gaming market is set to experience a new surge.

Initially, the video gaming industry could not gain a foothold in the market as the cost and access to wireless internet and smartphones or tablets was excruciating. But the scenario has changed. With easy access to internet and affordable technology, the market is embracing digital content. Now with the roll out of 4G services in the country, the gaming industry is experiencing constant growth.

The Indian gaming sector is at an inflection point that has been experiencing exceptional growth over the last decade. According to Nasscom, this sector is valued at 300million dollars (Rs2,000 crores).

According to a recent report, the Indian market for applied games stands to growth at a CAGR of 14-16% to 80million$ by 2021.

India has the potential to become the next big hub for game process sourcing. Thus, a constant inflow of professionals and workers is required to withstand the constant demand from leading countries in the games development space, i.e. US and Japan. Moreover, there is also an increasing demand in the country itself.

Career opportunities in the field of art, design, creation in 3D and 2D, animation, testing, project management, programming and quality control are endless and with the gaming industry in the country experiencing growth at the level that it promises to, by the year 2021, the future looks bright.
