Market outlook of the global MMO games market
Massively multiplayer online (MMO) games are designed to be played on different network-capable platforms like video game consoles, smartphones, or PCs. Rapid technological advancements that have led to the emergence of HD displays and audio devices having HDMI wireless network capabilities are some of the major growth promoting factors in this market during the forecast period. Also, the launch of next generation gaming consoles is expected to positively spur market growth, resulting in its healthy CAGR of more than 8% by 2019.

The advent of digital downloading is a significant factor that is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period. The latest gaming consoles are equipped with Wi-Fi, network connectivity, and HDD, which allows gamers to directly download games into their console.
