The game is on: the opportunities offered by the gaming market

Gaming creates considerable revenue worldwide, but especially in Western Europe.
The spend on PC gaming accessories in this region alone was €993 million in 2016. It was €1.5 billion globally. With the average sales price of gaming products higher than non-gaming equivalents – between 1.2x higher for a headset and 2.2x higher for a mouse – they are a great way to bring value to the accessories market.
