Software publishing revenue in France 2011-2023

The French software publishing market stands among the top five markets in the European region with 16.3 billion U.S. dollars sales in 2018. The demand from banking, insurance and finance sectors are likely to drive the industry revenue over the next few years, with revenues reaching almost 20 billion U.S. dollars by 2023. Notably, the top 20 companies in the segment accounted for more than 70% of the revenues in 2016, with the rest shared by over 20,000 companies.

Computer gaming market getting traction

The robust increase in gaming platform options, such as mobile, console and PC in the country, is resulting in wider demographic penetration with people of all ages now indulging in computer games. As such, France leads the European region with the highest share of computer gamers as cited in a recent survey conducted by Ipsos Group S.A. and Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE). Although it accounts for a minor share in the overall software publishing market, a slow but continuous growth is expected in the gaming segment over the short to medium term. Notably, the sales of virtual PC software and mobile based gaming accounted for maximum share among all revenue segments during 2013-2017.

Ile-de-France has the maximum number of software publishers

Sopra Steria with more than 3.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2016 revenue emerged as the highest grossing software company in France followed by Dassault Systems and GFI Informatique, all of which are headquartered in Paris. Therefore unsurprisingly, the Ile-de-France region is home to around 60% of the top software companies in the country.
