The buzz surrounding esports has been growing for years. And not surprisingly, the gaming industry has been watching. A new report from Juniper Research has estimated the value of the esports industry by 2025 and its penetration into markets around the world. The report includes esports development and trend analysis; streaming of live events often involving professional esports players, either live or pre-recorded for casual viewers; vendor strategy analysis; and benchmark industry forecasts covering 19 country-level splits. What the report doesn’t examine, however, is the value of wagering on esports, so the $3.6 billion valuation could be just a fraction of the potential if you including betting.
