5G is stepping in its footsteps in the Indian market and slowly and steadily as a country, we will be moving towards it.
Taking about recent development in this space came from three Telecom giants of the country- Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea are firming up their plans to tap into an emerging segment of Esport in India.
As per reports in different media outlets, all these three giants will form the core of their business strategies going forward as they will be keenly looking to drive average revenue per user(ARPU) by engaging more subscribers.
Based on report from Boston Consulting Group released in 2021, Indian online gaming industry is expected to clock $5 billion by 2025 from $1.8 billion in November 2021.
India already installed more than 50 million base of 5G smartphone in the country.
Jio would be soon coming up with JioGamesWatch Platform which will allow live streaming on Esports content will also work to develop creator- viewer engagement across multiple JIO devices.
Adarsh Nair, currently serving as Cheif Executive Officer, Airtel Digital said while taking to one of the media outlets, since gamers demand high bandwidth and lower latency connection makes this a key segment for the company broadband business.
“Similar to Wynk Music and Xtream Video we will soon launch Airtel Gaming app that caters to the needs of gamers. In future we will include cloud gaming and related products as part of Airtel Gaming initiative” he said.
For this Airtel would be keenly looking to develop partnerships with e-sports companies a strategy which is followed by Vodafone as well.
