Steam sales in 2015
“It brought over 3000 new games (compared to 1900 in 2014), increased the number of concurrent users on Steam from 8M to 12M and helped over 350 million paid games find new owners.
Paid Steam games market was worth over $3.5B in 2015
Not every dollar is going through Valve though, as some developers are selling their Steam games off Steam.
And remember — this figure doesn’t include free-to-play titles or DLC!
PC worldwide core games market is estimated to be around $27B in 2015 (Newzoo). So, including Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2 revenue, Valve is controlling around 15% of it. Pretty impressive!
Important note: Not all copies redeemed on Steam were sold through Steam and vice versa (GTA V, The Witcher 3). Some publishers report receiving up to third of their revenue from Steam games through third-party stores.”
