Turkish Game Market 2016 Report – Gaming in Turkey

by

Turkish Game Market 2016 Report;  Gaming in Turkey; Media Hub For Gaming and Gaming Agency Presents; Turkey is a developing country with a youth population of 14.5 million people (above EU average) and 46.196.720 online users out of 80.032.059 individuals, making it potentially one of the most valuable gaming markets in the EMEA region. This can be seen by Gamescom 2016 choosing Turkey as a partner country and Steam using TRY as one of its operating currencies. Turkey is home to a multi-million-dollar piece of the world’s digital game industry, which has steadily grown from the preserve of teenage bedrooms to become a powerful and profitable business sector, while domestic developers are working to maximize the country’s potential in this ever-expanding and lucrative market.

The Turkish video gaming market has been growing, day by day, not only by foreign investments but also by game development for mobile, PC and consoles by Turkish developers, publishers and gaming exhibitions. As an example, Istanbul is hosting two of the largest gaming exhibitions in the EMEA region; GameX and GIST (Gaming Istanbul). The expansion of Peak Games to US and Gram Games to UK (global-scale mobile services), and a record sale of 7 million copies of Mount and Blade medieval role-playing games from Tales World to 212 countries implies that Turkey has a significant potential in terms of gaming, locally and globally, both for game development, marketing and publishing.

Turkey has 29 million active gamers spending 70% of their gaming time (total game time spent) on PC.

In terms of total game time spent, this is the 3rd highest ranking in the world following Poland and Russia. Though it should be mentioned that a higher percentage of Turkish gamers use their time on free to play games rather than pay to play games when compared with the Western gaming market, placing Turkey at the 17th place in terms of global revenue rankings.
