A new report is predicting a massive rise in revenue generated by educational mobile games and apps in the U.S. between now and 2022. The report, published by the Serious Games Association and research firm Metaari, says the category will triple its annual revenue to just over $800m in 2022, and continue on to $1b by 2024.

Sam Adkins, Metaari CEO, said:

“The U.S. market for consumer educational games is growing at a five year CAGR of 24.3%, and market conditions for U.S. consumer-facing mobile educational game developers are quite favourable.”

Early learning titles are singled out as one of genres most in demand, along with increased innovation and attention in augmented reality games. It’s also mentioned that location-based services are a key feature of future educational titles.

The statistics come from the “2017-2022 U.S. Consumer Mobile Educational GameMarket” report, created by Metaari, and it’s available for download here.
