Indian gaming industry to grow 5-fold by 2006-07: KPMG survey

Fuelled by booming demand for mobile games and local content, the Indian gaming content industry is set to grow five fold to touch $100 million by 2006-07, according to a KPMG study. The current size of the industry is about $20 million, Economic Times reports quoting the KPMG study. Most of the 15-odd game developement companies - which together employ about 600 people - are focused on providing development services to overseas gaming firms.

Businessworld magazine recently profiled three of the largest players - Paradox Studios (a subsidiary of telecom services firm Reliance Infocomm), Dhruva Interactive and Indiagames - which are busy creating their own branded games.
