March 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Asia Pacific Sports Betting Market Growth & Trends

The Asia Pacific sports betting market size is anticipated to reach USD 60.34 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2024 to 2030. The increasing penetration of the internet and smartphones drives the demand for sports betting in the Asia Pacific. The accessibility and convenience offered by these technologies have led to a surge in online sports betting platforms, attracting a wide range of enthusiasts from diverse demographics. In addition, the rise of digital payment systems has facilitated seamless transactions, encouraging more individuals to participate in sports wagering activities.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the Asia Pacific sports betting market due to the widespread cancellation or postponement of sporting events across the globe due to lockdowns, travel restrictions, and social distancing measures implemented to restrain the spread of the virus. For instance, the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, initially scheduled for 24 July to 9 August 2020, was postponed due to the pandemic. The postponement of such big sporting events restrained the growth of the Asia Pacific sports betting market during the pandemic.

Moreover, the growing popularity of alternative betting options such as virtual sports, esports, and fantasy sports has diversified the offerings within the sports betting market, appealing to a broader audience base. As these non-traditional forms of betting gain traction among younger demographics, sports betting operators are investing in expanding their product portfolios to cater to evolving consumer preferences and market trends. The fantasy sports platforms allow users to create virtual teams composed of real-life athletes and compete against each other based on the players' actual performance in sporting events. These alternative betting options enhance the overall betting experience and offer opportunities for bettors to engage with sports in innovative and interactive ways, thus fueling the growth of the sports betting industry in the Asia Pacific region.
