In recent years, the esports industry has seen explosive growth, both in terms of market value and the number of people engaged.
Even though the sector was hit by a global pandemic, it still managed to continue blooming, whilst also showing mainstream audiences and non-endemic companies the true potential of esports when it comes to entertainment.
With the rapid growth of the industry, we can see various emerging trends, such as spikes in viewership, the volatility of existing scenes and the rise of specific titles. The question is, how can we use this data in order to push the industry’s development in the right direction?
Cyberport’s answer is clear: it starts with a discussion. Speaking with Esports Insider, Eric Chan, Chief Public Mission Officer at Cyberport, explained the importance of keeping discussions about esports’ growth going: “As the new normal takes its shape, industry discussions and thought leadership are needed more than ever to shed light on how the global trend of ‘esportification’ will spawn opportunities for the digital entertainment industry.”
