Augmented Reality (AR) | Virtual Reality (VR)

Massachusetts, USA, April 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Consumer app dominates the AR & VR industry. The most prominent industry in which mobile AR has been used is gaming. Pokémon Go dominated the market and contributed greatly to the growth of the market. Due to their use in games, sports, and entertainment, VR headsets are in high demand in consumer applications. The use of head-mounted displays (HMDs) as smart glasses in sports (such as skiing and fighting games) is growing.

Smartphone AR compatibility is critical to the widespread adoption of mobile AR. Only about 10% of smartphones are now compatible with AR technology, but with the increasing compatibility features provided by mobile developers, the use of AR in smartphones is likely to grow.

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a favorable influence on the growth of the AR and VR for healthcare applications market, as AR VR HMDs are expected to be widely used as protective equipment by medical personnel in the near future. COVID-19 has had an adverse influence on the market supply chain due to lockdowns and limited cross-border trade. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the global consumer market for augmented reality and virtual reality is expected to grow slowly in the coming years. The widespread shutdown of consumer markets has impacted the sale of devices such as HMDs and projectors. However, the VR market is expected to regain full speed by 2023.
