Regional Analysis-

North America to Remain at the Forefront Stoked by Presence of IT Giants in the U.S.

Geographically, the market is fragmented into the Middle East and Africa, Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and North America. Out of these, North America generated USD 3.0 billion revenue in 2018 and is set to remain in the dominant position throughout the forthcoming years. This growth is attributable to the presence of several renowned IT companies, such as Facebook, Apple, and Google in the Silicon Valley, U.S. These companies are aiming to innovate VR by developing hardware and software solutions. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is likely to grow at a fast pace backed by the rising usage of VR in countries, such as South Korea, Japan, and China. Coupled with this, the presence of major companies, namely, Samsung, Sony, and HTC would aid in driving growth in this region.

Competitive Landscape-

Key Companies Aim to Intensify Competition by Developing New Technologies

Some of them are also grabbing the opportunity of the current outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide.
