Share of gamers by gender and age in the Philippines 2017

About 16 percent of the gamers between the age of 36 and 50 years in the Philippines were female. An impressive rate considering the worldwide gaming proportion of women reaching only around 37 percent.

The Philippine gaming industry

Not only the gender distribution surprises, the total Philippine gaming industry is on the rise. It was forecasted that the revenue of games amounted to around 64 million U.S. dollar in 2014, up from around 44 in 2012 and it can be expected that it is still growing. Having its roots in the early 2000s, newer games like Dota 2, Counterstrike and League of Legends helped to achieve a greater market penetration.

Can eSports expect a similar growth?

Usually high gaming revenues lead to a professional eSport environment too. But up until recently, only amateurs made up the Philippine eSport scene. It dramatically changed when a Philippine tam beat out a major team at the international Dota 2 championships. Since then, hobby players were taking note and sponsorships were given out regularly. A chance for both, male and female players.
