The size of the online gambling industry could grow to $94 billion a year by 2024
CompanyZion Market Research 676 опубликовала прогноз по развитию индустрии онлайн-геймблинга. Аналитики предполагают, что в ближайшие пять лет сфера вырастет до $ 94 млрд в год.
This figure is double what was predicted two years ago. According to the old forecasts, it was expected to stop at $45.8 billion. The Zion report notes that the analysis takes into account the strong competition in the field among the leading providers of online gambling entertainment.
It should be noted that in addition to casinos, analysts took into account the indicators of online betting and other elements of the industry. The researchers also took into account the regional characteristics of the market and their attractiveness for investors and the rapid development of online technologies.
For example, from 2015 to 2016, the number of Internet users increased by 2.5%. It is also noted that the forecasts are based on emerging markets in Poland, Malta, the Czech Republic, France and other countries.
It was previously reported that Spain may introduce a ban on gambling advertising. The relevant bill will be considered in Parliament. The initiator of the law was the Ombudsman Francisco Fernandez Marugan. He argued the proposal by the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) called gambling addiction a disease.
