Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Facebook vs. Non-Facebook Social Network Gaming Ecosystem and Market Analysis 2013-2018” research report to their offering.


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/11/2013 -- Social network-based gaming has exploded within the last few years, led by the dramatic rise of Facebook with hundreds of millions of users. Social gaming is increasingly becoming a key focal point within the gaming community due in large part to the higher average revenue per unit through monetization of global social networks, local social networks, mobile social networks, and second screen social gaming.

At present, the fragmented nature of the industry is due largely to a lack of industry recognition that the biggest change driver is user consumption preferences rather than the specific games or platforms. We anticipate that the current trend of bite-size game-play will transform to an ecosystem of hard-core social gamers consisting of free-to-play, “freemium”, and pure-paid models. Similarly local contents along with niche market approach will be the key monetization and growth factors.

This research evaluates industry developments in social gaming, company and solution analysis for major players, ecosystem assessment, global vs. regional market strategy evaluation, and market projections. The report provides a comparative analysis between Facebook vs. Non-Facebook social gaming as well as a breakdown of sub-categories including local social networks and mobile social network gaming.
