Top gaming executives “remain upbeat about current business conditions,” according to the American Gaming Association’s fifth Gaming Industry Outlook.
A huge 97 per cent of respondents described the current business situation as either “good” (42 per cent) or “satisfactory” (55 per cent). In the Q1 report, 62 per cent reported it as “good” and 35 per cent as “satisfactory”.
When surveyed about future conditions, 58 per cent said they expected them to remain about the same, while the rest was evenly split between expecting conditions to improve or get worse.
Prepared by Oxford Economics and presented in partnership with Fitch Ratings, the AGA’s Gaming Industry Outlook delivers a biannual snapshot of industry performance. 33 executives responded, including executives at the major international and domestic gaming companies, tribal gaming operators, single-unit casino operators, major gaming equipment suppliers, and major iGaming and/or sports betting operators.
“The significant expansion and record demand for legal, regulated gaming in the post-pandemic era have allowed our members to consistently invest in our product and people to deliver innovative entertainment options for American adults,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller. “Gaming CEOs remain focused on delivering world class entertainment options against the backdrop of broader economic uncertainty.”
