While these two companies hold over 50% market share in game streaming services, they have very little market share in China's streaming services in general, so it only affects game streaming, which is a rather niche market over here

It's just a game live broadcast. You can watch any platform monopolized there. It's not only these platforms. This game live broadcast is not a very profitable industry for the company.
