The Global Sports Betting and Lotteries industry has thrived over the past five years as the global economy has emerged from the recession and consumers have picked up their discretionary spending. The recovery has been led by developing economies such as Asia and South America, where growth has comfortably outpaced developed economies in North America and Europe, where the industry has reached maturity. Over the five years to 2014, industry revenue is expected to grow 0.2% per year on average to $201.9 billion. Moderate global growth is expected to push the industry up 1.2% in 2014.
Operators in this industry offer legal gambling on lotteries, including draw lotteries, Lotto, Keno and scratch tickets, as well as wagering on official sporting events, including horse racing. The industry also includes noncasino video machines.
