Global Virtual Reality (VR) in Medical Market Size to Reach USD 11,742.16 Million in 2032 | Emergen Research

Increasing use of VR in medical marketing and rising prevalence of diseases are among some key factors driving global VR in medical market revenue growth

Vancouver, Oct. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  The global Virtual Reality (VR) in medical market size was USD 446.2 Million in 2020. Increasing use of VR in treatment of patients, rising focus on digitalization in the healthcare sector, growing healthcare expenditure, supportive government initiatives, rising prevalence of diseases, and growing use of VR in medical marketing are factors driving market revenue growth.

Drivers: Growing use of VR for providing training to healthcare service providers

Use of VR for providing training to healthcare service providers without the need for an actual patient, such as in case of a surgeon getting trained on-job during a complicated surgery, is among some of the key factors driving preference and is a major driver for market revenue growth. This technology also helps Emergency Care Providers or ‘ECPs’ to learn how to appropriately carry out Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) procedure without performing chest compressions on an individual having trouble breathing. Medical professionals can receive other beneficial training through VR, including learning about infectious disease control and human anatomy.

Restraints: Technical limitations in various healthcare facilities associated with implementation of Virtual Reality

Technical limitations in various healthcare facilities associated with implementation of VR could hamper market revenue growth to some extent over the forecast period. In some clinical settings, size of VR systems might limit smooth operation. Likewise, for certain healthcare facilities, resolution and specification of computer systems can restrict deployment. Also, as digitalization is still an emerging concept in the healthcare sector, especially in some developing and under developed economies, there is a lack of skilled professionals for operation of such systems.

COVID-19 Direct Impacts

During the coronavirus pandemic, researchers across the globe emphasized on use of innovative technologies, such as virtual reality for fast-tracking to curb the spread of disease. Virtual reality is advantageous for remote/far flung sites for exploring telemedicine, preparation, treatment, and regulating infections by delivering proper awareness to individuals about disease. This technology creates a platform to cut down face to face interaction of healthcare professionals with COVID-19 patients. Also, through live video streaming facility, VR aids to enhance surveillance systems on the current situation.

Current Trends and Innovations

Rising deployment of virtual reality in mental healthcare therapy and applications is another key factor boosting demand in the medical sector. According to a study, Virtual Reality Exposure Therapy (VRET) is proving to be very effective for behavioral treatment associated with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which affects around 3.6% of the adult population in the US. Distinctive symptoms of PTSD include anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, and altered perception of reality. VRET aids to eliminate or reduce these symptoms by offering sensory and immersive atmosphere thus making people shift their attention from traumatic experiences.
