In-Game Advertising Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a positive impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The increase in the number of gamers and growing partnership between advertisers and video game companies are notably driving the in-game advertising market growth, although factors such as the growing use of advertisement blocking solutions may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the in-game advertising industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key In-Game Advertising Market Driver

 

One of the key factors driving growth in the in-game advertising market is the increase in the number of gamers and the growing partnership between advertisers and video game companies. The gaming industry is growing rapidly with the increase in the availability of free-to-play online video games, such as Apex Legends and Fortnite. This industry is expected to grow to over $300 billion and more than 2.4 billion gamers around the world by 2025. This will encourage advertisers to invest in in-game advertising and will help them reach a larger audience with diversified demography and geography in less time. Also, the growth of the global in-game advertising market will be driven by the increasing number of partnerships between game publishing enterprises and advertisers (enterprises planning to advertise products through in-game advertising). This type of advertising helps in creating a high audio-visual impact that can result in a long-lasting and favorable product impression on viewers.

Key In-Game Advertising Market Trend

The incorporation of NLP with in-game advertising is another factor supporting the in-game advertising market share growth. NLP integrates smart advertisement formats directly into the game-loops by identifying when a gamer is in an approachable mindset to engage with the advertisement before displaying it. NLP used for in-game advertising can help the advertiser in creating effective brand messaging by generating a positive connection with the gamer. With capabilities of NLP such as predictive analysis tools, big-data-based targeting, and emotional and behavioral recognition, in-game advertising can provide advertisers with both high quality and large-scale audiences, from which advertisers can target pick the highest value users for their advertisements. Also, a well-targeted advertisement using NLP that rewards gamers during gameplay helps in creating an affinity with the brand and a lasting impression. Hence, the incorporation of NLP with in-game advertising can lead to an increase in the demand for in-game advertising.

Key In-Game Advertising Market Challenge

The growing use of advertisement blocking solutions will be a major challenge for the in-game advertising market during the forecast period. The increasing interruption of in-game advertising before the game starts and while playing games can affect the player experience. Some of the advertisements do not add value or have any relevance to gamers, which increases the level of frustration while playing. This encourages gamers to adopt advertisement blocking solutions that help them in blocking advertisements from being displayed while playing video games. The use of these advertisement blocking solutions leads to a loss to game publishers and advertisers since no revenue is generated from gamers using advertisement blocking solutions. Hence, the increasing use of advertisement blocking solutions will impact the growth of the market in focus.
