The most notable event this year was an esports competition that was televised on Star Sports 2. The same program’s viewership set numerous records, and the impact it had on the sector was huge. Competitive prize pools have been produced as a result of increased brand participation, viewership, team participation, and positive growth, and this will only improve over time.

Potential Sponsors have come to understand the value of our industry, the untapped audiences, and how they could leverage it for their further growth.
What are your thoughts on the Rise of Gaming Content creators?
Ans. Content Creators have helped increase our reach tremendously across all platforms. The content has not only created game awareness but also put our industry out there amongst all creators. Content Creation, in general, has opened doors to multiple revenue streams. From brand sponsorships to quality content creation for esports organizations and brands.
With all these things growing every day, the community can only go upwards. The recognition from the Indian Government will certainly help the industry as well as young enthusiasts.
