The Asia-Pacific online gaming market is expected to generate $21.1 billion in 2013, according to In-Stat's "Online Gaming in Asia: Strong Potential for Growth" report. The research company said that increased household Internet penetration and new content for online games would drive growth.

Many gamers in the region subscribe to online games, which accounts for most of the industry's revenues.

"The online gaming market in the Asia-Pacific region is growing in tandem with the significant increase in consumer Internet use," said Stephanie Ethier, analyst at In-Stat, in a statement. "In addition, the number of market players is rapidly expanding; therefore, improved content and a greater variety of games are keys to success in this market."

China is the fastest-growing online gaming market in the region and is expected to become the largest by 2009. [eMarketer]
