Sports betting is a form of gambling where users predict sports results and place a wager on the outcome through online and offline platforms.

However, in the coming years, some countries are expected to ease the regulatory norms pertaining to sports betting in order to avail tax revenues. This helps end users witness and participate in betting activities in real-time through their Internet based or other electronic devices. The hike in the penetration rate of Internet-based devices, wagering through online and offline modes of payment, and relaxation of laws have boosted the sports betting market across the globe.
In this market report, TMR estimates that the offline platform is expected to remain prominent till the end of 2027, though the online platform is found to be attractive among users in the sports betting market. Rise in the adoption of Internet-based devices and a large base of traditional sports bettors are the primary factors for the robust growth of the sports betting market across the globe. Increasing government initiatives are expected to drive the growth of the sports betting market during the period of 2019 to 2027. All these factors are leading to the rise in the penetration rate of sports betting. However, most countries, globally, do not have well-defined laws and regulations related to sports betting and related activities. Social and religious stigma attached to the participation in sports betting is expected to hamper the market during the forecast period. In addition, risks associated with the threat of cyber-attacks and betting addiction are also a challenging factor faced by the sports betting market.
