Through eSports, society’s preference for computer interactions is unfolding and revealing the changing nature of modern consumption. Traditional sport is on the front line of this disruption.
As ratings decrease, the main television networks are now putting eSports on the same level as traditional sports with the aim of targeting new younger audiences.
The main eSport tournaments are selling out arenas worldwide and every time a competition is streamed there are millions of viewers tuning in. According to the market intelligence reports from Newzoo, the value of the eSports economy on the global scale was a little less than $500 million last year and has the tendency to grow to more than $700 million this year.
The infographic below highlights some key figures on the disruptive force of eSports.
