The China Game Industry Annual Conference reported that the total revenue of the Chinese games industry (client-based online, mobile, webgames, “home games,” console games, handheld games) was 123 billion RMB ($20 billion USD). Niko’s estimate for 2013 is $11.9 billion for PC games and $1.2 billion for mobile games, and we are doubtful that the total got as high as they are reporting in this Gamelook article.


Keep in mind that other “official” Chinese game industry associations will also host conferences and declare market values, the most prominent of which is the GAPP-affiliated China Game Publishers Association, and their conference is in January.
