Latin America: leading gaming markets 2019, by revenue

As of June 2019, Mexico was the leading gaming market in Latin America, narrowly followed by Brazil. Gaming revenue in both countries was over three times higher than in Argentina — the country with the third highest revenue. The combined gaming revenue of Mexico and Brazil alone exceeded the predicted gaming revenue in Latin America for 2019.

Top gaming experience in Uruguay

Despite the comparatively modest size of its gaming market, an analysis of consumer mobile experience indicated that Uruguay offered the best battle royale mobile gaming experience and the best real-time multiplayer mobile gaming experience to 4G and 5G users in Latin America. In both tests, Uruguay and Brazil were the only Latin American countries to be placed in the “fair” category, providing a mobile gaming experience deemed “average”.

Web application attacks highest in Ecuador

As a niche market that may attract a more affluent user base, gamers and gaming platforms are prime targets for web attacks such as credential abuse. Hacking accounts connected to a valid credit card is one form of credential abuse, which allows the hacker to make more in-game purchases to sell the account at a markup. The volume of web application attacks in Latin America has not always correlated with the size of gaming markets in each country, however, but cropped up less predictably. Ecuador, for example, suffered over ten times the number of web application attacks as Brazil in June 2019, despite having a much smaller market — ranked seventh in Latin America.
