Asia’s GDP Could Increase by $1.4 Trillion a Year Due to Metaverse

According to a recent Deloitte analysis titled “The Metaverse in Asia: Strategies for Accelerating Economic Impact,” there is a trillion-dollar market opportunity for the metaverse in Asia. Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, mainland China, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam are among the 12 Asian economies that are examined in depth by the study.

Deloitte’s report states:

“We estimate that the impact of the metaverse to GDP in Asia could be between US$0.8 trillion – US$1.4 trillion per year by 2035, roughly 1.3-2.4% of overall GDP per year by 2035.”

“The metaverse presents a trillion-dollar opportunity to significantly transform major economies in the region … Vice versa, the Asian economies will make a meaningful impact on how the metaverse takes shape globally,” Deloitte described, noting that “the development path of this nascent technology still remains uncertain.”

The financial services firm explained: “The metaverse is no longer science fiction. Early metaverse platforms are already being used by millions … In Asia, many consumers are already gaming, socializing, attending concerts, and purchasing items on virtual platforms such as Roblox, Decentraland, Fortnite, and Asia’s very own Sandbox and Zepeto.”

 

The Deloitte report further details:

“The potential GDP impact estimates of the metaverse globally range from US$1.5 trillion per year by 2030 and US$3 trillion per year by 2031.”

Duleesha Kulasooriya, Deloitte Center for the Edge’s managing director in Southeast Asia, was quoted by CNBC as saying: “If you look at the youths … they’re the ones who are interacting and engaging in the metaverse mostly today, and 60% of the world’s youths live in Asia.”

The managing director added: “The metaverse is inevitable. Developing the technology stacks, human capital, and regulatory frameworks to realize Asia’s trillion-dollar metaverse potential will benefit a wide range of industries and economic activities.”
