The Indian Mobile Gaming Industry is heading towards a bright future. Sensor Tower has released its last report of 2020, revealing that India has the most number of mobile game downloads (around 9.3 Billion) this year. This figure nearly doubles that of America, which finishes in second place.

India leads the chart with more than 4 billion downloads more than the second contender (the United States with 5.1 Billion). This may not come as a surprise to many, considering the massive number of mobile users in India. However, what's interesting is that the country does not show up among the top 5 grossing countries. Also, Garena Free Fire has officially become the most downloaded game of 2020.

Indian Mobile Gaming Industry in 2020

2020 has been an incredible year for the mobile gaming scene in India. The wide-spread global epidemic has kept billions in the safe of their home, thus, increasing the engagement with online entertainment. India experiences a major influx to its player base. However, the Esports scene does not perform up to par. After the ban on PUBG Mobile, the biggest Esports title in India, the growth pace of the entire gaming industry has been put to a halt.

But, it also offers other games the opportunity to thrive. BR titles like Garena Free Fire quickly took up the lead, becoming the most popular game in the country. The game is making its way towards building a solid and professional mobile gaming industry in India. Supercell’s Clash Of Clans and Brawl Stars are also relevant to Indian competitive gaming. And let's hope things get even better in the year of 2021!
