Women Gamers Fuel the Rise of Dubai and the UAE as a Global Gaming Hub


With female gamers increasing in MENA region, Dubai, UAE and Saudi Arabia are becoming a lucrative destination for gaming companies. RedSeer Consulting Report has pointed out that women gamers are set to push the MENA gaming industry past $5 billion by 2025.

Times of India, the third-largest newspaper in India by circulation and largest selling English-language daily in the world, uncovered the latest gaming trends, and the increasing share of female gamers in particular in one of the recent publications.

“When it comes to the gaming industry, it’s true that mid-core and hard-core games are played by a majority (although far from exclusively) male audience. It’s often these games that grab the most attention for content creators and streamers, as they tend to be highly competitive and, as such, can make for gripping entertainment. However, my perception is that there’s huge potential for talented female content creators to address that gap and engage with both male and female audiences,” – says David Fernandez Remesal, CEO at Sandsoft Games.
