Online Gambling Quarterly assesses the current and future business climate in the gambling industry
Online Gambling Quarterly analysts asked industry experts to assess the current trading situation and their expectations for the next 12 months. The assessment of the future business climate (in 12 months) has registered a significant drop. The current conflicts in Eastern Europe, rising inflation and increasingly stringent regulations seem to cause estimates to drop considerably.
Current business climate – Spring 2022
Online Gambling Quarterly analysts asked industry experts to assess the current trading situation and their expectations for the next 12 months. For the current edition, they’ve gathered estimates and insights from 122 market insiders and experts, including many C-level executives. With regular updates, this survey and its results serve as an industry barometer for the overall climate of the online gambling industry.
Fifty-four percent of experts and market insiders surveyed rate the current business climate in the online gambling industry as “satisfactory” or even “poor”. Among those questioned, 46% of experts consider the current climate to be “good”.
From June 2020 to March 2021, we saw a continuous improvement in the business climate. But in the summer and fall of 2021, this upward trend came to a halt and, after a relatively stable phase, we are now seeing a slow decline.
Future business climate – tThe outlook for the future has declined significantly
Looking at the future business climate (in the next 12 months), 45% of experts surveyed think the industry climate will be “good”, down from the current “good” share of 46%.
The assessment of the future business climate (12 months ahead) also trended upward after the first Covid shock, a trend that has also come to a halt in recent quarters. The current conflicts in Eastern Europe, rising inflation and increasing regulations seem to push down estimates significantly in the first quarter of 2022.
