Chart: Video game groups tap into surging demand

Investors have multiple ways to tap into this mushrooming market (our cover feature on the sector provides a good overview). They include Frontier Developments (FDEV), creator of the Elite: Dangerous and RollerCoaster Tycoon franchises; Keywords Studios (KWS), which provides testing, translation, art creation and other services to most of the leading video game companies; and retailer Game Digital (GAME).

Other options are technology investor Mercia Technologies (MERC), which has invested in digital trading card company VirtTrade and virtual reality group nDreams; OMG (OMG), whose Vicon motion-capture cameras were used by Electronic Arts (US:EA) for titles such as FIFA 16 and NBA 2K16, and Pinewood (PWS), which recently added video game production to its range of media services.
