Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have been around, in some form or the other, for over 5 decades now, but it’s only in the last 7-10 years that these technologies have really come into their own. Whether it’s the ability of VR to enable you to immerse yourself in a location you’ve never been to in ‘real-life’, or the ability of AR to enhance your real-world environment, these technologies are here to stay. With the evolution in hardware devices, especially mobile devices, as well as the growth in technology and platforms, AR and VR have finally come of age, even in India. In fact, the Indian VR market grew by a whopping 104.24% from 2013 to 2017 and is expected to reach an incredible $153 billion by 2020. Apart from the regular suspects like gaming and entertainment, this massive growth in AR/VR is coming from a relatively unexpected area. In the past few years, businesses have found AR/VR technology to be extremely useful in training and communication. This has spearheaded the application of AR/VR in a wide range of industries— automotive, manufacturing, medical, defence, aerospace, education, medicine, and retail. In fact, apart from the surge in demand for healthcare and the increase in defence spending, the demand for AR/VR products in training will be the biggest factor propelling the growth of the industry.
The augmented reality (AR) market is projected to grow from $15.3 billion in 2020 to $77.0 billion by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 38.1% from 2020 to 2025. The virtual reality (VR) market is projected to grow from $6.1 billion in 2020 to $20.9 billion by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27.9% from 2020 to 2025. The increasing demand for AR devices and applications in healthcare, rising investments in AR market, and growing demand for AR in retail and e-commerce sectors due to COVID-19 are the key factors driving the AR market growth. The availability of affordable VR devices, growing adoption of HMDs in different industries, advancement of technologies and growing digitization, penetration of HMDs in gaming and entertainment sectors after COVID-19, and high investments in VR market are the key factors driving the VR market growth. The objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the augmented reality and virtual reality market based on technology, offering, device type, application, and region.
