Gaming Cub Predicts Rise in Online and Offline Gaming in Asia
PR Newswire LONDON, August 10, 2012
LONDON,August 10, 2012/PRNewswire/ --Online and offline gaming in the Asia-Pacific region is rapidly outpacing that of Europe According toGaming Club,Asiais the driving force in the online and offline gaming market. As the outlook inEuropecontinues to deteriorate, having a knock-on effect on markets around the world, particularly those trading with the European region, most commentators predicted a sharp drop in gaming profits. Whilst this is certainly the case inEuropewith a contraction of 7.2% in 2010, it is not true forAsia. TheAsia-Pacificmarket grew by 49.7% in 2010 according to PwC. A further rise of close to 40% was enjoyed in 2011. PwC also predicts the gaming market in Asia-Pacificwill outsize the next largest by at least three percentage points, taking the world's biggest share of the gaming pie. However, gambling inAsiais almost solely fuelled by land-based casino resorts. Online gambling is illegal is most Asian countries, exceptthe Philippineswhere it was legalised in 2000. However, with the deepening economic climate, governments around the world are looking at ways to boost tax revenues and legalising online gambling - which is played profusely anyway. This would generate much-needed tax dollars. Additionally, the proliferation of social networks is boosting online gaming, making it easier to play and harder to monitor and enforce laws. More and more casinos are being built inMacau,China'sequivalent ofLas Vegas. As greater sums of money are poured into the region, more casinos are being built. This obviously has a cyclical effect on the wealth of the region, which is in turn being used to fund more casino developments. Aside fromMacau,Singaporeis another major land-based casino region operating inAsia-Pacific. South ofChinaandSingapore,Australiais also enjoying a boost in gaming revenues. Online poker is leading the way Down Under, accounting for around 60% of the country's total gaming revenues in 2012 according to Gaming Club. AsEurope'sproblems look far from over,Asia Pacificshould have no problem becoming the global leader in both offline and online gaming.
