Pakistan Makes a Statement at GDC 2024, Highlighting Booming Gaming Industry

Islamabad, Pakistan – March 25, 2024

Pakistan’s gaming industry took center stage at the prestigious Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2024 in San Francisco, California. A dynamic delegation of 30 representatives and 6 Pakistani companies impressed attendees with their talent and creativity.

GDC is a pivotal event for the global gaming industry, attracting leading developers and driving innovation. With the global gaming market projected to exceed US $221 billion in 2023 and boasting 3.2 billion gamers worldwide, participation at GDC is crucial for establishing connections and exploring new opportunities.

The Pakistani delegation actively networked, shared knowledge, and explored potential collaborations with industry leaders. This showcase of Pakistani expertise opened doors for future partnerships and investments, solidifying the country’s position as a rising star in game development.

The presence of Mr. Asim Ali Khan, officials from the Consulate General of Pakistan in Los Angeles, and Trade & Investment Counselor Quratulain Fatima, underscored the government’s commitment to nurturing the nation’s booming gaming sector.

This support highlights a broader strategy to foster innovation and propel Pakistan’s digital economy forward.

Pakistan’s gaming industry boasts a current valuation of nearly $200 million, capturing 1% of the global market share. The sector is home to over 200 studios, primarily generating revenue from North America and Europe, and experiencing a remarkable growth rate of 125%.

The Pakistan Software Export Board (PSEB) plays a critical role in showcasing and accelerating the growth of Pakistan’s IT industry, including the gaming sector. The US market holds particular significance, accounting for nearly 50% of Pakistan’s total IT/ITeS exports. Recognizing this importance, PSEB emphasizes the need for a robust market presence to expand business horizons on a global scale.

Pakistan’s participation at GDC 2024 underlines its commitment to becoming a global hub for game development. As the country continues to invest in its digital economy and foster innovation, its gaming industry is poised for even greater success in the years to come.
