Game Development in Ukraine: Industry Guide 2018
First unique market research powered by ACHIEVERS HUB and UNIT.City
Why GAMEDEV?
One of the most promising investment sectors in the world.
Newzoo forecasts that in 2018 the games market revenue will reach $137.9 billion which is 13.3% more than in 2017.The revenue of the gaming industry today is bigger than the one of the movie industry and is closing to the revenue of the sports industry.

Leading research companies estimate that the games market will continue to grow in the coming years both in regards to revenues and the number of players. All this makes the game development one of the most promising investment sectors in the world.



A particularly rapid growth is observed in the mobile games market with a startling breakthrough happening during the last 10 years. In 2012, it accounted for the smallest market share, while in this year mobile games will generate more than a half of all revenues in the industry, namely $70.3 billion.

Ukrainian game development industry is also evolving rapidly. Only in recent years more than 30 new game dev companies have appeared. Gamedev studios are present in almost all Ukraine's regions. At the same time, there has not been any research on the game development industry in Ukraine.
