China PC Online Gaming Matrix - Q3 2017

China's PC-based online gaming market revenues reached RMB 82.8 billion (USD 11.9 billion) in 2016, down 6.9% YoY. Improved Internet penetration, up from approximately 50.3% at the end of 2015 to 54.3% at the end of H1 2017, rising average incomes, and the budding trends in virtual reality games and e-sports helped slow the rate of decline, but the industry's top talent and resources continued to migrate to mobile gaming.

Client-based PC gaming revenues dropped 4.7% YoY in 2016 to approximately RMB 58.3 billion (USD 8.4 billion), comprising 70.4% of total market revenues. Browser game revenues declined 14.8% YoY to RMB 18.7 billion (USD 2.7 billion), comprising 22.6% of total market revenues. Social game revenues rose 0.6% YoY in 2016 to reach RMB 5.8 billion (USD 0.8 billion), comprising 7.0% of total 2016 market revenues.
