Gaming YouTubers and channels are widely popular on YouTube and make up the largest percentage of viewership on the platform. Every year gaming YouTubers receive a high level of viewership and have grown their channels massively on YouTube.

There is a rise in the number of gaming YouTubers in India as the videos are not only popular but are highly entertaining. Just like other game streaming sites as Twitch exploded, the YouTube gaming community is also on the rise. People can watch their favorite games and learn playing techniques through gaming videos.
Another reason why gaming videos are becoming popular is that YouTube keeps pushing gaming channels. YouTube India has recently been dabbling with gaming channels to diversify its portfolio, offering platforms such as TikTok as competition in the video room, which gives the US-based business a run for its money.
YouTube India claims to be leading the race with 24 gaming channels with more than a million subscribers, which was almost nonexistent until two years ago, according to the business. In the Asia-Pacific region, India is the third-largest gaming market.
