Increasing demand witnessed by the gaming industry during lockdowns and proliferation of mobile gaming to drive market growth. Additionally, rising demand from industries like BFSI, Automotive, and Retail is helping enhance the growth over the forecasted period.  

Market Size – USD 2.18 Billion in 2019, Market Growth - CAGR of 13.63%, Market Trends –Rising adoption across BFSI, Automotive, Architecture, and Healthcare industries. Increasing trend for AR/VR will spur the growth over the forecasted period.

The global Game Engine Market size is forecast to surpass USD 5.96 billion by 2027. A game engine is a primary software of a video game or computer game. The software is employed to create and develop video games for mobile devices, consoles, and personal computers. 2D- or 3D-based game engine software are used to plan and code games rapidly. Game engines perform animation, sound, scripting, artificial intelligence, collision detection, and memory management in games.

A notable application of game engines is being observed across various industries, wherein they are used for gamification as well as the rising adoption of AR and VR. Banking sector is including their use for an innovative approach in regards to customer experience. It is also being used in the architecture end use for creating virtual environments  in order to let the developers focus on the import of appropriate content. In the automotive end use, game engines to the likes of Unity or Unreal engine in order to develop UI UX design. Although game engines are broad prototyping tools, they offer the design teams to quickly evaluate their work in real time 3D ecosystem.

The expanding gaming industry is expected to drive the growth of the global game engines market. Increasing rate of mobile gaming applications and app store spending will also boost the market growth. However, the high-cost constraints for smaller gaming organizations will pose a challenge to the games engine market.

Augmented reality in games is a very recent concept but is acting to raise demand in the games engines industry. Many game engines provide AR development suites. An AR game engine usually contains an augmented reality Software Development Kit or SDK, which allows developers to design, build, and test games under development. Such tools also enable developers to create and edit 3D characters which can interact with the real world. The requirement of such advanced features by developers is creating a demand for AR enabled game engine platforms.
