This IDC study forecasts digital Windows PC, macOS, Linux, and Chrome OS gaming through 2023. The digital PC games market includes Windows PC, macOS, Linux, and Chrome OS gamers aged 16+ who play at least monthly; associated spending on video game software and services that are derived from online channels; and associated display ad revenue (i.e., display ads and video ads shown in or around browser game windows) going to game developers and publishers. Packaged PC game disc sales are excluded, as is related hardware system and peripheral/accessory sales.
"Despite the tough slowdown in China last year, we expect digital PC gaming to rebound in late 2019 and indeed through 2023 worldwide, and indeed grow at a healthy clip, driven by factors such as the growing popularity of PC-based esports and the advent of real-time ray tracing, which is going to greatly improve in-game lighting and drive gamer interest by extension." — Lewis Ward, research director, IDC's Gaming and VR/AR
