Unity Software Inc. (NYSE: U), a producer of software core for video games and 3D technologies, might be one of the benefactors of the metaverses’ optimistic trajectory.
The game engine, which is owned by Unity Software, is extensively utilized in both major projects and low-budget production. Unity Software’s solutions are in keeping with the current trend of “scattered” demand for video games, in which customers have access to various projects through aggregator sites and linger on each game for a short period of time. The Unity engine is well-suited for such applications and can offer Unity Software long-term revenue growth.
Citigroup researchers said last week that the metaverse might be worth $8-$13 trillion. Unity Software, as one of the beneficiaries, may gain from the sale of 3D software used to generate metaverse elements.
Citigroup also predicts that gaming, art, advertising, healthcare, virtual communities, and social cooperation would ultimately lure between one and five billion users into future metaverses or specialized virtual worlds.
It’s worth noting that the sale of tools for increasing audience engagement and monetizing games already accounts for around 60% of Unity Software’s income. Subscriptions to software products account for the balance of the revenue. Game engines are also commonly utilized in simulation applications such as research and development and the construction of buildings in dynamic settings.
Unity Software’s income is fast increasing, yet the firm is still not profitable. Analysts on Wall Street, on the other hand, expect free cash flow to improve this year. Profitability is not predicted until 2027.
