Although the association with games suggests the opposite, gaming is anything but childish. Gaming has in fact, become a mature industry in the Netherlands. After the U.S., Canada and Japan, the Netherlands too has become a major global player in the field, with a strong track record in innovation. Currently about 20 Dutch companies design games for game consoles like the Playstation, Xbox and Wii.
According to the researcher PricewaterhouseCoopers, sales of the global gaming industry will increase by about 40% to $ 73.5 billion between 2008 and 2013. The bulk of these sales will come from games, services and devices for game consoles. In this respect, the turnover of the game industry is similar to that of the film and music industries. The strongest growth will be in Europe, followed by Asia and only then the U.S. The biggest growth in money comes from online games, with global turnover increasing by 10% to € 13.7 billion in 2013.
