The APAC region will drive the growth of the gaming chair market in coming years

44% of total growth is expected to come from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. This is because the APAC region shows especially robust demand for PC and console gaming devices - this drives demand for gaming chairs as well.

Subsequently, outside of the home or office, the biggest demand for gaming chairs in this region comes from modern gaming chair cafes that cater to e-sports enthusiasts.

High end esports cafes in Asia are fueling demand for gaming chairs

These provide Asian youth the opportunity to socialize with other gamers, while having access to the latest and greatest video games. For example, India's Ark Nemesis Gaming offers a top-of-the-line gaming experience that draws huge crowds.

The purpose of gaming chairs in this scenario is not only to look flashy, but also to comfortably support the back for long hours of gaming. This is good business - healthy and energetic people socializing and playing video games in clean, controlled environments.
