Global NFT Market - By Type

Gaming & Digital Art NFTs are expected to account for the highest number of NFT transactions. In gaming, in-app purchases or virtual currency purchased in free-to-play games could not be withdrawn, re-used, resold, or utilized in other ways across games or platforms until recently. They were, in other words, perishable consumable products. With NFTs, anything purchased in the games becomes the owner's property. The user's name will be used to register the asset. Each object is uniquely identified, has a provably limited number of copies, and can be shared among users without the developer’s permission. Better yet, it can be moved outside of the game, sold on the market, or even used in another game, and providing extra utility and gameplay across various games. New inventions are being made as digital art allows more people to become interested in and active in the art world. The artists in this space will continue to experiment and produce work that pushes the current art form's boundaries. However, there is a disadvantage to typical digital art creation in that products can be reproduced and replicated indefinitely at no expense. To address this flaw, digital art is now stored on the blockchain and converted into a NFT, making it impossible to duplicate. This has provided digital artists with a possibility to profit from their creative work. As a result, it is expected that digital art will hold a significant share in the global NFT market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global NFT Market

Due to global lockdowns imposed by governments due to the Covid-19 pandemic, people have been compelled to adopt a more sedentary lifestyle. These populations, of all ages and origins, have had to learn new ways to interact socially after being confined for so long. As a result, these users joined a variety of online Metaverse platforms to boost social engagement and gain exposure to NFTs. For example, during a lockdown period, Axis Infinity, a blockchain-based digital pet world, attracted thousands of newbies to the blockchain technology from underdeveloped and developing countries looking for new income streams. According to, the global NFT market expanded by 299% in 2020 over the previous year.

Americas to dominate the Global NFT Market

In terms of market size, the Americas region is expected to be the highest contributor in the global NFT industry. Despite the lack of strict legislation, accounting norms, and disclosure requirements in the United States, firms are investing in NFTs. After making its first cryptocurrency investment, KPMG Canada's corporate treasury purchased a piece of digital art from the "World of Women" NFT. The business model is practical and a viable alternative for novice NFT producers to get started, with the OpenSea platform having enormous success in 2021.

Competitive Landscape

North America is the home to major companies such as OpenSea, Larva Labs, Cloudflare, and Dapper Labs. Artists are being motivated to be a part of this burgeoning NFT world by investments and creative digital works, which could be a big contributor to the NFT market growth during the forecast period.
