Esport is growing strongly in Denmark and internationally, and in just 4 years (from 2012 to 2016), NPF has grown over 400% in the number of participants at the event in Fredericia.
Like other gaming events, NPF is almost 100% filled up by Millennials ie. Danes born between the 80s and the beginning of year 2000. The millennial generation around the world is also the segment that drives all the increasing use of online video, including Esport, primarily viewed physically or online at Twitch or Youtube.
According to a new report from Limelight Networks called State of Online Video, young people between 18-25 years in both the U.K. and Germany countries consume 4-7 hours of online video a week. In strong contrast to this, all other age groups in the same countries only watch 1-2 hours of online video weekly. In France, more than 1 out of 4 in this segment watch over 10 hours of online video per week on average.
In fact, male Millennials watch more Esport and online video content than traditional sports, according to the report, and the young men’s idols are often either streamed from Youtube and Twitch or skilled Eports players.
