HYDERABAD, India, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Market Overview

According to a report published by ReAnIn, the global online gambling market was valued at USD 67.5 billion in the year 2021 and is projected to reach USD 146.4 billion by the year 2028, registering a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period. The rising popularity of sports betting particularly among young adults, the growing adoption of mobile payments and online payments, and the increasing use of smartphones are some of the leading drivers for the global online gambling market. COVID-induced lockdown further fueled the growth of the market as physical casinos or attendance in live sporting events were restricted. The lack of a legal framework for online gambling in various countries is the major obstacle to the growth of this market.

The legalization of sports betting in the United States has led to the explosion of online gambling

In May 2018, the US Supreme Court ruled that each state could decide whether to allow legal sports gambling and since then about 30 states have legalized sports betting including 18 that allow online sports gambling. 16 states have either crossed US$ 1 billion in sports betting or are about to reach there. This rush toward sports betting has surprised almost everyone and has paved the way for online sports gambling in the country. New York collected US$ 1.6 billion in sports betting in less than a month after launching online sports betting in January.

Key Highlights of the Report:

  • Sports betting was the leading game type and contributed to more than 50% of the global revenue in the online gaming market. Furthermore, the sports betting segment is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period owing to the rising popularity of sports betting in young adults.
  • Among device types, desktop/laptop dominate the market currently, while online gambling on mobile is expected to grow with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Expansion of online gambling in developing economies and higher penetration of mobile are some of the factors leading to the steep growth in mobile-based gambling.
  • Europe accounted for the highest market share in the global online gambling market as gambling is legal in a majority of the EU countries including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, etc. However, North America is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the near future as various states have already legalized and some are in the process of legalizing it.
