eSports is the world of competitive video gaming and includes both playing games online and watching live online tournaments. Tournaments are streamed live to viewers around the world, who watch the events in real-time and also participate in live chats. The global eSports industry surpassed $1.6 billion in 2018, driven by massive growth in live-streaming gaming sites.
eSports celebrities and top-tier gaming professionals have fueled the popularity of the events and the launch of eSports platforms, such as Twitch, YouTube Live Gaming, Smashcast, and Teamliquid. Top players compete for corporate sponsorships, global fame, and hefty prize money.
