Gaming market booming

Written by Nick Farrell



54 million PC gamers in the world


Beancounters at Jon Peddie Research are estimating that there are 54 million Performance and Enthusiast class PC gamers worldwide. JPR thinks that by 2015 there will be 72 million PC gamers by 2015, by whichs it means enthusiast and performance class PC gamers spend more than $1000 on near gear.

The analysts say that with chips from AMD, Intel, and Nvidia, new machines from Alienware, HP, Lenovo and others, components and accessories from companies like ASUS, EVGA, Corsair, Logitech, and MadCatz,  the market will grow to $32 billion by 2015.

Hardware suppliers are ready for them with new machines, Ultra HD and 120Hz stereo3D capable displays, new super power supplies, sound systems, cases, cooling, high performance memory, SSDs, keyboards, and mice. Average selling prices for some components could suffer as competition heats up in 2013, but unit shipments will continue to rise, and components like SSD's are counterbalancing and buoying system integrated and DIY ASPs, the report said.
