Gaming Industry an upcoming monopoly

There is a talk by Saurabh Mukherjee, founder of Marcellus investments, in which he discusses monopoly businesses. He observes that an industry with a monopoly looks like one with a lot of competition, so no one enters it. Similar is the case with the entertainment industry which consists of movies, music, sports, and games. The gaming industry in the World is generating more revenue than the music, movies, and sports industries combined, making it a monopoly in the entertainment industry. However, as observed by Saurabh, we do not understand who the actual monopoly in the industry is. Only a handful of companies in India can or are trying to make great games. Another thing to note about the Indian gaming market is that it is dominated by mobile game players. When the world caters to the demand of desktop players, Indian companies have a different audience of mobile players and they should focus on them.
There was once a time when making games was a passion project but today it is a full-fledged industry. And what Kunal Shah says in his most speeches is "build dam where a river is". The gaming industry is a river with a very high water current.
