According to Newzoo, the gaming industry is a sizable one, with an estimated 2.6 billion gamers worldwide spending a collective $148.8 billion on games in 2019. And Jon Peddie Research estimates that the 2020 PC gaming hardware market is set to swell by $3.6 billion — up 10.3% from last year — a figure it attributes to the global pandemic. Sounds like a good time to be a gaming hardware company.
Corsair states that as of June 2020, it commands 18.3% of the US gaming peripherals market and 41.9% of the gaming PC components market. So how do those figures translate on a balance sheet?
Well, in 2018, Corsair pulled in $937.6 million of net revenue. And in 2019, it finished the year with $1.097 billion. Exciting figures, but important to note that the company also recorded losses of $13.7 million in 2018 and $8.4 million in 2019.
That said, Corsair is on track for another billion dollars of net revenue in 2020 and here’s the best part: it’s turning a profit. The company recorded a $23.8 million profit between January and June 2020.
Corsair isn’t just growing — it’s profitable. And this distinguishes it from many of its loss-making peers in the tech sector launching IPOs this season.
On paper, Corsair looks like a solid investment. But despite its success, Corsair isn’t immune to risk.
In its S-1 filing, Corsair outlines the following major risks to its business:
