According to the GFK survey, CE sector profited by 9.5% and reached USD 7.3 billion in the second quarter of the year 2016 from UEFA EURO 2016 football championship.

LAMEA holds the least share of the market owing to the poor infrastructure and reach of technological advancement, and limited availability of funds, especially in African countries. The Middle East is the major contributor to the regional market growth. In the near future, the region is expected to witness a sound growth due to many untapped opportunities in this region.
