The research’s core is a visual that showcases six segments – platform providers, trading, e-commerce, data, content and iGaming – and all the major businesses that feature in each. The study was conducted internally by a team of Spotlight Sports Group researchers who benefited from the support of independent industry experts and focused on the regulated European and North American markets. The study focuses on the major suppliers across the industry and highlights the extensive M&A (Mergers and Acquisitions) that have taken place in recent years.
Spotlight Sports Group Head of B2B Marketing, Alan Davis, commented: “What is most interesting from the research is how the major players have been growing the number of segments they’re in through innovation or acquisition. It’s striking when you view how some businesses feature multiple times and that is sure to grow. The pace of change within the industry has presented significant challenges while compiling the visual, in what we believe to be the first of its kind for the iGaming industry.”
Davis added that the study created an overview of the suppliers as a visual report that aims to give industry professionals a chance to view the sector from several different perspectives.
