Global console market reached record high of $53.9bn in 2020


Oct 18, 2020
The segment, which includes console hardware, games content and services, grew 19% last year, as the market was worth $45.2 billion in 2019. Ampere Analysis expects it to reach $58.6 billion in 2021.

Sony maintained its position of leader in 2020, representing 46% of the console market, versus 49% in 2019. Microsoft was steady year-on-year, with its market share just declining 1% to 23%.

Looking at software more specifically, 50% of consumer spending went to Sony's consoles. In terms of physical games sales, it's unsurprisingly Nintendo who took the lead though, even though Ampere Analysis noted that "Nintendo's digital games business grew substantially in 2020."
