ESPORTS IN AFRICA
About 60% of Africa’s population is under the age of 25, making Africa the world’s youngest continent. The burgeoning youth population is a big opportunity for the continent, especially with the adoption of the internet and information technology among this demographic. Although Africa has just over 40% internet penetration, there is potential for growth.
In 2019 for example, more people in Africa access the internet than did in Latin America, North America, or the Middle East. There were 525 million internet users in Africa, 447 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, 328 million in North America, and 174 million in the Middle East.
EAN collects and processes data from the gaming and esports industry on the continent. In analysing data, there are over 700 million gamers in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East combined. This would mean that gamers in Africa would number in the millions, with potentially more to join in the near future.
As far as internet penetration is concerned, Kenya has the largest share among African countries at 85 percent; Ghana, Libya, and Nigeria follow closely. Though Africa is behind only Asia and Europe in the absolute number of internet users it lags behind every other region in the proportion of internet users.
