The eSports industry has excelled remarkably in the 21st century, making it one of the most significant successes of the century. Here are some eSports trends to watch out for.
Competitive gaming has been present since the 1970s, but it was only in the last years that it became a mainstream genre. The global eSports market is currently worth around $1.4 billion, and it is anticipated to grow to approximately $5.5 billion by 2029.
ESIC is tasked with eliminating issues such as match manipulation and betting fraud to ensure competitive integrity within the eSports sector. The commission has committed to increasing its efforts to create a trustworthy landscape across the industry.
The sectors of eSports and traditional sports have increasingly become intertwined. eSports series based on traditional sports such as the Champions League, Formula 1, and NBA have improved the credibility of eSports in related areas like the gambling industry.
In the quest to gain a competitive advantage, companies are now focused on custom-made eSports products, and 3D printing technology is increasingly being used to make ergonomic gaming mice and gaming chairs to optimize player comfort and control. Virtual reality headsets could massively impact how eSports is played in the future.
