Game Based Learning Market 3

Global Game-Based Learning Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 21% during the forecast period. Game based learning is a process of using educational games as a platform to teach students. Educational games are games that are specifically designed for educational purposes or have incidental or secondary educational value. The growing adoption of game-based learning is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for virtual reality and augmented reality and artificial intelligence. The game-based learning is growing on account of its features such as conformational feedback. Conformational feedback is intended to indicate the degree to which a response, action, or activity was correct or incorrect. Furthermore, the growing prominence of gaming industry is expected to influence the market growth. For instance, according to techdigest, the number of gaming apps in the Google Play Store jumped by 40% in a year and hit almost 480,000 in the first quarter of 2021. Moreover, companies are moving to cloud-based models to take advantage of new technologies such as microlearning, augmented learning, and virtual reality. Additionally, cloud-based technology is gaining momentum in the education sector due to its low-cost and flexible teaching methods for students.

Kahoot, Frontier Developments plc, Mojang Studios, BreakAway Games, Schell Games, Monkimun Inc, Smart Lumies Ltd, Cognitive ToyBox Inc, Paratus Knowledge Ventures Pvt Ltd, and Indusgeeks Solutions Pvt Ltd are some of the key players in the market.
