A growing sector

The digital industry, and specifically the Video Game industry, is growing around the world. In fact, it’s the new technology sector with the most solid and sustained growth. 7.2% business growth is estimated from 2011 to 2016, with an increase from €58,700 M to € 83,000 M1 

The study carried out by ICEC2 in 2010 tells us that Catalan companies account for 36% of the State’s total production. Catalan companies mainly opt for the design of Casual Games (130 titles in 2010, 40% for mobile phones and 30% for online platforms). The video game industry in Spain is the leader in sales compared with other industries such as music, cinema and DVD, and it occupies a prominent place in the global digital content sector.

The number of workers in the Video Game sector has doubled year after year since 2009 until today. Addeco, the consultancy firm specialising in the workplace, quantifies the needs of the global digital content industry for 2011-16 at one million jobs.

Furthermore, the increase in the creation and downloading of mobile applications has exceeded the most optimistic forecasts in recent years, as indicated by the reports on the situation provided at the Mobile World CongressBarcelona is establishing itself as a Video Game and Mobile Application cluster, not only because it hosts the MWC, but also because it has large and small businesses; a list of some of the most important companies based in Barcelona and its area are listed below:

FX Interactive, A Crowd of Monsters, Abylight, Akamon, Beautifun, Blinzy, Down to Moon, Gameloft, Unkasoft, Kotoc, Novarama, Virtual Toys, Bloom 3D, Tecnalia, BrainSins, HiSocial, Punto Extra, Devilish Games, Mercury Steam, Cookie Box, GamyGame, Gamedonia, Jugo, TwenTIC, Kilima, Factoria d’Imatges, Ubisoft, King, Social Point, Digital Legends Entertainment, Over the Top Games, Omnidrone, Kerad Games, Gestionet, Undercoders, Pyro Studios, Blit Software, Bitoon, Star-T, MediaFlow, PortAventura.

While the conditions for the growth of the Video Game sector are ideal for finding a job near home, we shouldn’t forget that in a global world such as the one we live there are many opportunities to work for the big American, European and Asian companies which are gaining prominence.

Within the above context, ENTI’s training and experience provides several great career opportunities, given that they’re multiple and they are ever-increasing. ENTI ensures that it is in constant contact with companies so as to adapt to their needs and provide them with the professionals they require.
