Polish exports of games, consoles, and video game devices in 2013-2018 increased by 3810.5%. The country is today the fourth largest exporter in this industry globally, according to data presented by PKO BP in a report on Polish foreign trade.

Although Poland is far behind dominant China, which exports goods worth €9.35 billion and has a 49.1% share in the global sales of games and consoles, the country accounts for a noticeable 6.5% of the global market with its exports valued at €1.24 billion. Poland is ahead of such countries as Germany and the US. The second and third place in the ranking is occupied by Hong Kong (exports valued at €1.74 billion, a 9.1% share of the market) and Japan (€1.95 billion, 10.2%).

The US is the largest importer (€4.69 billion, 24.6% share of the market) in this industry. It is followed by Germany (€1.91 billion, 10%) and Hong Kong (€1.58 billion, 8.3%). Poland’s imports are worth €1.43 billion and account for 7.5% of the market, which means that they still exceed the country’s exports.
