LONDON, Dec. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Worldwide Digital PC and Mac Gaming 2013-2017 Forecast

This IDC study forecasts the digital PC and Mac gaming market worldwide through 2017 along several dimensions. The industry’s main business models — subscriptions, prepaid downloads and add-ons, and freemium — are separately sized and assessed. North America is also broken out from a combined rest of the world region, and hardcore market dynamics are distinguished from games and online gaming communities that have a more casual orientation.

“The rise of the freemium business model in Asia/Pacific has been impressive in recent years, and this fundamental transformation of PC gaming should advance globally through 2017,” says Lewis Ward, research manager of IDC’s Gaming. “Digital PC gaming is becoming a service industry in which building customer engagement and finding clever ways to get gamers to open their wallets — informed by big data analytics and real-time monitoring of online gamer preferences — will become the cornerstone of developer and publisher/portal success.”
