“Competition among messaging applications is heating up worldwide,” said Hitoshi Sato, senior analyst at InfoCom Research, Japanese telecom giant NTT group’s research arm. “Line’s challenge is how to diversify its sources of profit in the future.”

“Line’s challenge is how to diversify its sources of profit in the future.”
Sato said a roughly $10 billion value for Line was reasonable given that its finances eclipse some of Japan’s most successful smartphone game developers.

“Success in gaming can be elusive. One game title can be a blockbuster hit, but this may mask several other unprofitable titles,” said Sato.

Analysts said messaging app users are fickle, jumping from one app to another.
“At the moment, Line has good revenue from game and stickers. But the other messaging apps can easily and quickly imitate and take the place of Line’s current position,” Sato said.
