Esports is changing.

Over the past few years, the lines between esports, live streaming, and even influencer marketing have become blurred.
The pandemic disrupted the esports and live-streaming markets alike. While the esports market faced more challenges, it also managed significant growth, with markets and regions that previously had little-to-no esports activity suddenly entering the scene and flourishing—most notably, India. On the live-streaming side, lockdown measures resulted in spiking viewership across all platforms. More consumers were—and still are—confined to their homes, driving them to spend more time on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. These platforms also flourished as social hubs for many consumers, resulting in an impressive year overall for streamers and the broader live-streaming market.

Ecosystem and Key stakeholders

There are many different stakeholders for esports, and each of these has a unique part to play. This makes the ecosystem complex and varied. Key stakeholders are:
