How to invest in gaming and eSports

Jul 8, 2023 | Follow the Money

Explore a thematic investment collection dedicated to a multi-billion dollar industry that goes far beyond playing a few games among friends.

Driven by the coronavirus pandemic, video game startups received record investment in 2020. Home consoles, virtual reality games, streaming and the organization of mass events are just a few pieces of a transformative growth industry that is challenging and redefining the world of sports and traditional media. In fact, video games are increasingly becoming a social medium that allows sharing virtual experiences and interacting with friends and strangers around the world.

All the companies in HeyTrade’s thematic investment collection “Gaming eSports” operate in the video game and eSports industry. This market grew by more than 20% from 2019 to 2020, surpassing $175 billion – more than Hollywood or professional sports – and forecasts suggest it could exceed $200 billion by 2023. Given these growth statistics, there is no doubt that this sector has great potential.
