UAE is playing an active role in localizing and developing games into Arabic, with market size forecasts reaching more than $1.4 billion. UAE is ahead of mobile phone prevalence statistics in the region. Users spend a great deal of their time browsing the Internet, watching videos, and playing games on their gadgets. The more technologically advanced the UAE is, the more developed their share in the gaming industry becomes.
The online gaming world attracts the community with its various segments, featuring multiple categories of video games and mobile games that receive great attention from adults and young people. For example, simulation games that simulate aspects of real or imaginary reality have seen a breakthrough since the release of the most famous SIM City simulation game released in 1989. In addition to serious games designed to solve a problem through investigation or advertising, they are used in industries such as the defense, education, scientific research, and healthcare industry, as well as other educational or recreational games. Every year, the Dubai World E-Games Exhibition covers game development companies in UAE along with these different types of computer and video games that are covered in our daily lives through mobile platforms and even home gaming device screens.
As mentioned earlier in this blog, Nico Partners, has reported that the gaming market in MENA is estimated to be worth three billion dollars by 2025. Data about the condition of the Middle Eastern video game business is generally scant, and gaming firms seldom provide figures, thus this study provides a summary of their ranking.
When compared to other Middle Eastern nations, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the UAE have the most gaming visitors, which is why technology and gaming businesses have separate companies specialized to each country’s population. These places have seen a significant increase in dependency and visitor rates for e-sports and live broadcasting.
