Newzoo’s ‘The Role of Mobile in Esports Report‘ gives an overview of the current mobile esports scene. The past two years has witnessed crucial developments in the global esports market, growing by 102% in revenues from 2015 to 2017, according to Newzoo. While mobile has quickly grown as the biggest gaming screen worldwide, its esports scene is largely lagging behind that of PC and console.

In Asia however, mobile esports is experiencing a boom, accelerated by the mobile-first culture of the region.  China is also somewhat of a phenomenon, leading with top franchises like Tencent’s Honor of Kings and Giant Network’s Battle of Balls. In Asia, mobile esports is expected to follow a similar structure to that of PC, with the top games being played and scalable stadium events taking place with large viewership.

In the West, PC is still the dominant form of gaming entertainment and is expected to remain so for the coming years. Here, mobile esports is expected to be more successful in the lower layers of esports, like in the amateur scene.
