The drivers of development so far have been the technological competitiveness and ambitious pioneering entrepreneurs (e.g., King Digital, Rovio, Supercell). The markets are now moving to the rapid growth stage, which mean that business, especially marketing and sales skills, as well as more networked view of production and sales, will be emphasized the next few years. On the other, in terms of business opportunities, application of knowledge and skills of games industry in the other fields will increase rapidly.
