Virtual reality (VR) technology comes as a new phenomenon. It’s leading the way that most people will play games in the future. A report issued in April 2021 from Brandessence Market Research claimed the global VR gaming market would be worth almost $52.7 billion by 2025.
Recent research by Mordor Intelligence titled: EXTENDED REALITY (XR) MARKET – GROWTH, TRENDS, COVID-19 IMPACT, AND FORECASTS (2021 – 2026) indicated that The Extended Reality (XR) Market is registering a healthy CAGR of over 62.67% during the forecast period (2021 – 2026). The extended reality (XR) market is being impacted by COVID-19, primarily due to multiple factors that include physical lockdowns, essential e-commerce delivery limitations, brick-and-mortar retail closures, and supply chain disruptions (supplier, manufacturer, distribution, wholesale, retail), and economic impacts. Further, a player such as Avnet Inc. has implemented operating cost-saving restructuring plans, including plans to reduce operating costs by USD 75 million annually by the second quarter of FY 2021. Avnet expects to use cash for restructuring, integration, and other expenses. Such initiatives are made to tackle the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Extended reality (XR) is currently an emerging umbrella term that encompasses immersive technologies, such as augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, and other future realities such technologies might bring. The increasing demand for reducing the distance between people and richer visual content is driving market demand. According to a recent survey by Accenture, 80% of the business executives believed that it is essential to leverage XR solutions to bridge physical distance during employee engagement.
Companies are also developing supporting technologies for XR platforms, which are forecast to global commercialize XR technologies. In January 2019, Northern Digital Inc., a global manufacturer of 3D measurement and motion tracking solutions, launched its new electromagnetic sensor-fusion tracking technology for the XR platform: Atraxa.
Identifying a great potential in the XR domain, several companies have established their XR product lines globally. For instance, Qualcomm has developed First Responder XR Glass that uses inertial, haptic, environmental, and health sensors, eye-tracking cameras, bone conduction transducers, and other components aimed for more intelligent and faster interaction with the environment.
Microsoft developed HoloLens 2, a hands-free mixed reality headset that is a guiding force for XR’s existence. It enables 3D visual training, hands-free video calling, and generates a virtual floor or room plan map.
