Sports Betting Market Growth & Trends

The global sports betting market size is estimated to reach USD 182.12 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The primary element driving the rise of the sports betting sector is the developing internet infrastructure worldwide. The industry is growing owing to a rise in the amount of sports events and leagues around the world and a surge in demand for sports betting among the elderly and millennials. Other factors affecting the market growth are an increase in disposable income and the need for financial stability among the people.

Esports, electronic sports, is a type of video game competition that frequently takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game events amongst individual, professional players, or teams. Betting in the E-sports segment has gained popularity during the pandemic and is expected to maintain stable growth in coming years due to the rising emergence of video gamers. Some of the most popular competitive video games are Counter-Strike, Dota 2, Call of Duty, and League of Legends, around which multiple tournaments are hosted worldwide.

The internet has positively impacted the market significantly since the introduction of live bets in 2002. However, in the absence of a digital presence, technology's impact on betting is negligible. Major players in the sports betting industry operate via online platforms and official websites. Additionally, sports betting is a highly regulated industry worldwide. For instance, online betting in all sports except horse racing is illegal in most parts of India according to the Public Gambling Act of 1867 and the Technology Act of 2000.

The COVID-19 pandemic has augmented the market for sports betting. The pandemic impacted the lives and occupations of multiple households globally. Earning members lost their jobs, and many faced decrements in income. As a result, the indulgence in betting for a considerable amount of the population increased and the industry saw a surge in participants. According to a study conducted by Public Health England, online casino gambling increased by almost 9.0% during the pandemic.
