The Indian gaming industry looks to the future
Not long ago, desi software engineering companies were nothing more than humble subcontractors to foreign players. By 2020, there were already more than 400 game development companies, former veterans of the outsourcing era and startups, who were busy creating localized content. As a result, gambling or fantasy sites like PureWin and casino apps now feature authentic design genres, themes and graphics, as well as local language support.
India’s national online gaming market has matched Twitter’s global user base with its 365 million players, but desi game developers already see it as too small for their ambitions. “In 2023, we entered the $ 70 billion global gaming market, concentrating on the United States. We will continue to offer personalized gaming experiences to grow internationally and nationally through our innovative games, ”said Bhavin Pandya in a recent interview with Ojasvi Nath for BW Businessworld.
The global potential of the nation’s gaming industry was recognized by Prime Minister Narendra Modi nearly a year ago. In August 2020, he broached the topic at a meeting focused on ways to boost the country’s toy manufacturing. According to Modi, India should make good use of the huge potential of the digital game scene by creating games inspired by desi culture and folk tales. He added that technology and innovation should be the main driving forces and that India should become the leader in the global digital games industry.
