China PC Online Gaming Matrix - Q4 2017

China's PC-based online gaming market revenues reached approximately RMB 86 billion (USD 12.7 billion) in 2017, up 3.8% YoY. Improved Internet penetration, up from approximately 53.2% at the end of 2016 to 55.8% at the end of 2017, rising average incomes, and the burgeoning trends in virtual reality games and e-sports helped restore positive growth.

Client-based PC gaming revenues jumped 11.3% YoY in 2017 to approximately RMB 64.9 billion (USD 9.6 billion), comprising 75.5% of total market revenues. Browser game revenues continued their slide, dropping 16.6% YoY to RMB 15.6 billion (USD 2.3 billion), comprising 18.1% of total market revenues. Social game revenues fell 5.1% YoY in 2017 to RMB 5.5 billion (USD 0.8 billion), comprising 6.4% of total 2017 market revenues.
