Macau is the fastest growing casino gambling (or "gaming") market in the world. From 2001 to 2006, gaming revenue in Macau has grown at an annual rate of 23%. By comparison, Las Vegas and Atlantic City had CAGRs of 4% and 3%, respectively. The biggest driver of growth is its proximity to the increasingly wealthy Chinese population.

  • Melco PBL Entertainment (MPEL) is the only company publicly traded in the U.S. that is completely focused on the Macau gaming and hospitality industry.
  • MGM Mirage (MGM): This company is developing the MGM Grand Macau, which is scheduled to open in late 2007. Most of MGM's casinos are in Las Vegas, and its operations include: Bellagio, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay, The Mirage, Luxor, Treasure Island (TI), New York-New York, Excalibur, Monte Carlo, Circus Circus Las Vegas.
  • Las Vegas Sands (LVS): This company owns and operates The Sands Macao. It is also developing The Venetian Macau. These properties are named after LVS's Las Vegas counterparts.
