Final Thoughts on Mobile Gaming Statistics for 2022

Judging by these mobile gaming statistics, it is evident that the mobile game market will continue to grow in 2022 and years to come. Game developers and marketers need to take advantage of that and create strategies to win in this crowded market.

What’s particularly important to pay attention to are the ever-changing mobile gamer demographics. We can see that the idea of who a “gamer” is has shifted.

There’s a good reason to believe that even more women will get into mobile games, especially if the market continues catering to their interests. We also know female mobile gamers are more likely to purchase games and in-app content. That is another huge opportunity for game developers and marketers.

Furthermore, mobile gamers tend to skew older, especially when it comes to women, which is another thing both developers and marketers need to keep in mind.

IDFA changes have significantly impacted the mobile game market, which will continue to ripple through 2022 as well. We saw the rise of NFTs and blockchain gaming, both of which are promising exciting new ways to play and monetize mobile games. Additionally, the talk about the metaverse made everyone wonder how it will influence gaming.

In any case, it will be exciting to see how the mobile games market will change and evolve in the future – we’ll keep you posted. We update these mobile gaming statistics regularly.
