Driver -The key factor driving growth in the board games market is the rapid improvements in content and gameplay. Manufacturers are increasingly focusing on developing story-driven board games with ample detailing to offer superior immersive experiences. These games involve a framework that enables participants to interact with each other in an easy and non-superficial manner while ensuring strong engagement throughout the duration of play. Classic board games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, Clue, and Life have undergone frequent updates in illustrations and gameplay to cater to changing market demand. Licensing deals between board game developers and popular movie and TV franchises also enable the development of story arcs and character updates in board games.
Trend - The increasing digitization of board games is the major trend supporting the board games market share growth. Leveraging technological advances, several board game publishers are increasingly incorporating mobile applications as part of the gaming experience. Apart from replicating successful board game versions on mobile platforms, vendors are also using mobile applications to assist in gameplay. Popular board games such as The Settlers of Catan (Thames & Kosmos) and Mansion of Madness (Asmodee Holding) offer mobile applications for assisting in various aspects of game setup and gameplay management that include game timers and tutorials with immersive graphics and soundtracks.
Challenges - Threat from alternate gaming platforms will be a major challenge for the board games market during the forecast period. The rising penetration of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has seen the emergence of myriad mobile-based game offerings that target gamers of different age groups. Technological advances enable these applications to offer superior engagement and immersive experience through extensive storyboarding and detailing. Moreover, factors such as ease of access, better graphics, and content interactivity enable mobile games to attract and retain gamers at a rate higher than traditional board games.
