Top 5 Vendors in the Video Games Advertising Market From 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global video games advertising market report. This research report also lists 14 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Native advertising is changing the way video game advertising is consumed. These advertisements provide the gamer a real-life experience and enable them to connect with the games.

Social media advertisements for video games are gaining popularity because of the growing prominence of social games, where gamers compete with friends. This technique also allows advertisers to target their audience efficiently.

Competitive vendor landscape

The market is highly competitive with all the players competing to gain more market share. Intense competition, strategic M&A, rapid advances in technology, and frequent changes in consumer preference are some of the significant risks faced by the vendors in the market. With the increased competition, the market is seeing consolidation.

To survive and succeed, it is imperative for vendors to distinguish their products and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition. The development of innovative products will help the market grow during the forecast period,” says Ujjwal Doshi, a lead publishing and advertising analyst from Technavio.
