RESEARCH STRATEGY

Despite an extensive search, we were unable to find precompiled data on the number of Hispanics participating in the United States Esports market and their growth projection. We examined several industry research analysis portals and only found reports regarding Esports audience in the United States and global Esports viewership. Further, we scanned esteemed media sources such as BusinessInsider, OnlineBusiness, and other similar sites where we found an article about future Esports viewership in the United States. However, it provided no data on the ethnicity of these viewers.

Since there was no precompiled data available in the public domain regarding the number of Hispanics participating in the United States Esports market and their growth projection, we looked for alternative data points and triangulated the information from databases such as Statista and SlideShare. We triangulated the growth rate of Hispanic Esports viewership in the United States for the past three years and assume that it will follow the same trend as the general United States Esports viewership.
After applying several research strategies, we were also unable to find data on Hispanic Esports players in the US. In order to find the required information, we analyzed credible sites such as Forbes, NewZoo, eMarketer, and Esports Charts. We found data points regarding how much impact Hispanic gamers have on the Esports industry and information regarding Esports viewership. However, there was no data on the players themselves.
Finally, we decided to broaden the research criteria to provide insights that might be helpful. For this, we looked into portals such as eMarketer to find data on the global Hispanic Esports players. However, we were unable to find anything relevant.
