Indian Gamers are showing a strong interest towards a career in gaming, according to The HP India Gaming Landscape Study 2022 with two-thirds of the respondents keen to explore gaming as a career option. The study covered over 2,000 respondents across 14 cities in India. The growth of the gaming industry in India is also helping Indian gamers to try their hand at various career options. While becoming a gamer remains the most preferred, other options like becoming an influencer or a gaming software developer also interest them.

Half the women respondents said that they are eyeing a career in gaming. According to the study, only 2% of respondents have received formal training in gaming. While most gamers rely on personal skill enhancement to upgrade their gaming performance, 32% follow a gaming star to enhance their skills.

In the second edition of HP’s Gaming Study in India, PC remained the most preferred device for gaming. An overwhelming 68% of gamers voted for PC, as it offers better processors, design, and graphics with immersive displays.

Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP India market said, “As the gaming industry in India evolves, it is promising to see gaming being considered as a career option. The PC gaming landscape in India offers a tremendous opportunity for the youth and we, at HP, are committed to support gamers in their journey by providing knowledge, tools, and opportunities to upskill and help them become better at their game.”
