China’s mobile game market surges 24.4pc in April

BEIJING (Xinhua) – China’s mobile game sector continued to see robust growth in April, with the monthly revenue surging 24.4 per cent year on year, an industrial report showed.

The revenue of the online game market reached nearly CNY16 billion (about USD2.26 billion) in the last month, data from research institute CNG showed.

The growth, hitting an all-time monthly high for April, came despite a drop in users as the country’s efforts in work resumption filtered through, signalling big market potential in the game sector, the report said.

Earlier data showed sales revenue in China’s mobile games market came in at CNY151.37 billion in 2019, a year-on-year increase of 13 per cent.
