Trends to Watch in 2021

Mobile Esports Will Enter the Upper Echelon

Αs consumer appetite for mobile esports continues to grow in China, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, mobile esports will continue to subvert expectations in the once-PC-dominated market.

Esports Teams Will Continue to Diversify

Teams will continue beyond the model set by traditional sport structures, putting a large focus on other initiatives like positioning their company as a lifestyle brand or hiring content-creators.

Traditional Sports Will Increasingly Look to Esports

Pro-sport events are starting to happen again, but sports organizations spent 2020 accelerating their esports efforts. Many of these experiments will continue into 2021 (especially the successes).

League-Based Formats Will Foster the Ecosystem

With travel restrictions still inhibiting international play, we expect to see another year with an increased focus on league-based formats and regional play alike – permanently, for some scenes.

Non-Gaming Content Will Become Even Bigger on Streaming Platforms

Streaming platforms will double down on a wider variety of content beyond gaming, like concerts, political events, and live shows – especially as young people increasingly move away from cable TV.
