HP gaming survey: Indian gamers who enjoy gaming as a career: HP survey

Indian gamers show a strong interest in a career in gaming, according to The HP India Gaming Landscape Study 2022, with two-thirds of respondents eager to explore gaming as a career option. The survey included more than 2,000 respondents in 14 cities in India. The growth of the gaming industry in India is also helping Indian gamers to try out different career options. While becoming a gamer remains the most preferred, they are also interested in other options such as becoming an influencer or a gaming software developer.

Half of the female respondents said they have a career in gaming in mind. According to the study, only 2% of respondents have formal training in gaming. While most gamers rely on personal skills to improve their gaming performance, 32% follow a gamer to improve 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 screens.

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 presents a great opportunity for the youth and we, at HP, are committed to supporting gamers on their journey by providing knowledge, tools and opportunities to hone their skills and help them become better at their game.”
