The yearly report from the Danish Producers association reveals that employment is up by 4,4% and the number of companies is up 10%, so all good here. But unfortunately, in 2016 the games sector has also seen a decrease in both revenue and export -11,7% and -12,8% respectively.
While this is, of course, disappointing, after a number of years with huge growth rates, at Interactive Denmark we interpret the numbers as an indication, that the Danish games industry in 2016 was on a plateau. The industry is getting ready for the next round of growth and – as the growth in the employment rate indicates – was in high production mode. This matches up to the fact, that we in 2017 have witnessed an unprecedented investor interest in the Danish games industry.
