Swedish games industry

According to the 2018 Swedish Game Developer Index, one out of ten gamers plays a game that was made in Sweden, which means it’s a growing industry. In 2019, the same report showed that Swedish game developers set new records, two of which related to turnover and gender equality. Sales increased by 42% to SEK 19.2 billion (approximately EUR 1.8 billion) and the number of women employed increased to 21%. This means that one out five positions at a gaming company in the country is held by a woman.
