We partnered with Google to bring to a deep dive on global mobile gaming insights powered by App Annie’s advanced taxonomy, Game IQ. The report focuses on China-headquartered companies looking to take their games overseas and layers in competitive analyses around high-growth gaming subgenres.
As of H1 2021, China-HQ’d publishers launched 187 new games. Consumer spend grew 47% to reach a leading share of the mobile gaming market at 23%.
