FY on FY global growth up 2%; Latin America, North America up; Asia Pacific down; Europe holds steady.
In 2015, full-year on full-year global lottery sales grew 2%, moderating sharply from 2014 full-year on full-year sales growth of 9.9%. Strong growth in the Americas over the whole year 2015 was offset by a contraction in sales in the Asia Pacific region over the second half of 2015, with the result that annual growth in global lottery sales is now at its lowest point in five years, as the attendant graph (right and below) shows.
After a sunny start to the year in which sales grew by 8% quarter-on-quarter, growth slowed in Q2 2015, with aggregate half-year on half-year growth coming in at 4.6% globally. Regionally, growth in the Americas strengthened, while growth across the African, Asia Pacific, and European markets moderated.
Global lottery sales slowed further in the nine months through to September 2015, with aggregate 9M on 9M growth moderating to 2.5% from half-year on half-year growth of 4.6% and first-quarter on first-quarter growth of 8%. Strong growth in the Americas was counterpointed by sales growth in the Asia Pacific and European regions, where sales essentially held steady.
Lotteries worldwide enjoyed a sunny start to 2015, with all five regions of the globe reporting results firmly in positive territory. Overall, first-quarter on first-quarter sales increasing by 8% globally, with the Asia Pacific and the Latin American markets once again acting as the engines of growth.
