US Daily Fantasy Sports Market Exploding
The emergence of legal and regulated sports betting in the US market in 2018 and the expansion into more than 30 states has done no damage at all to the burgeoning daily fantasy sports product in the USA.
According to data compiled by MordorIntelligence.com, the amount of money spent by DFS players across the USA is expected to nearly double over the next five years. Current numbers show that people playing DFS games in the US market are spending $13.02 billion per year. Based on the current annual rate of growth in participants of 12.09%, that number is anticipated to reach $24.23 billion a year by 2029.
According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA), there were 62.5 million fantasy sports players in the United States in 2023. That total has grown from 42.3 million as of 2017. Some 15% of Americans over the age of 21 say they participated in DFS over the past year. The largest market share in terms of demographics in that group was between the ages of 25-44. They comprise 58% of the overall total.
DraftKings and FanDuel account for more than 90% of the US daily fantasy sports market. Football is the No. 1 DFS sport in terms of participation, followed by basketball.
