1          UK Games Software Market Analysis

1.1        Overview

              The UK Games Software retailing market has grown at the CAGR of 6.65% during the period
              2004-08, reaching US$3.3 billion in the year 2008, an increase of 32.0% since 2004.

              The games software Industry in the UK is currently demonstrating excellent performance in the
              current sluggish environment of the retail sector and hence, is growing at the rapid pace as against
              the downturn in most of the other sectors. When this upsurge is over, it is expected that still more
              contribution will be made by the video games to the retail market. The reason for this excellent
              performance is growth in the demographics, along with the technological innovation. Although the
              leading specialist like Games Group and a number of independent retailers are in a better situation
              to exploit the buoyant market, other retailers are also willing to share the profit along with the
              grocers, online retailers and non-specialists, which will lead to increase of their participation in the
              sector.
