During the mid-2000s, online gaming in India was majorly in the form of social games, facilitated primarily by international developers. According to a study by KPMG in India and Google, the online gaming industry witnessed impressive growth with 120 million online gamers and market value estimated at ~ 290 million USD in 2016. The key driver of market volume was the proliferation of affordable smartphones amongst the urban and rural population and cheap data packs. While the gaming industry has come a long way over the past few decades, it is still evolving. One of the most crucial ways the gaming industry is growing is by creating personalized experiences in gaming. The future of Indian online gaming will witness an ecosystem of engaged gamers, creative designers, developers and marketers with a good amount of investments pouring into the industry and production of locally themed games.
