According to data from the Mobile Game Index 2nd Edition published by adjoe and Statista, China generated $89.5 billion in revenue last year. The USA comes next with $58.3 billion, followed by Japan with $50 billion. Looking at other reviews, the number of app downloads in China in 2021 (58.1 billion) is almost equal to the rest of the world (59.7 billion).

However, when the data obtained are examined, it is observed that China will experience a decrease of -10.9% in downloads until 2025. Meanwhile, it is seen that there will be an increase of 12.3% in the rest of the world.

It is seen in the other table that the decrease in the number of downloads in China and the increase in the rest of the world will be reflected in the revenues in the same proportion. Looking at the timetable players spend in casual games, Africa stands out among the regions.

Africa, which has 26 million players, is followed by Europe with 23.7 million. However, if we look specifically at hyper-casual, it is seen that the Asia-Pacific region ranks first with 7.2 million.

If we look at the other table, it is seen that women play more games than men in all genres except hardcore.
