Vancouver, British Columbia, June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global virtual reality market size is expected to reach USD 43.01 Billion at a steady CAGR of 27.5% in 2028, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Steady surge in adoption of automation in consumer sector in developing countries is expected to continue to fuel market revenue growth over the forecast period. Rising deployment of VR by retailers can reduce crowding at shopping malls and provide customers the feel of shopping at a store without actually visiting the store. Retailers are increasingly deploying virtual reality to reduce crowding, which is known to decreases customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Integration of 5G with VR and advancements in fully-immersive technology is also expected to fuel growth of the market going ahead. 5G promises a faster Internet connection and lower latency, which help in seamless function of the technology. Market players such as Microsoft and Facebook’s Oculus division are experimenting with 5G to develop a virtual reality world that will be too taxing for current devices to display.

Virtual reality is also finding increasing application in theme parks that offer VR coaster rides by using animation techniques. Traditional theme parks are investing significantly in VR technology to promote visitor attendance, while others are developing theme parks dedicated to VR technology.

Virtual reality can also train and improve social abilities. VR training improves social skills of individuals on the autism spectrum. The city of Austin in Texas partnered with a local startup in March 2021 to develop two virtual reality training programs for first responders. However, some users experience sickness, headaches, virtual fatigue or nausea which reduces user’s intention to adopt the technology.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • In March 2021, HTC announced a tracking module for Vive Pro lip and new virtual reality body trackers. The trackers are used with virtual reality headsets, including one which captures mouth movements and facial expressions. The tracker attach to the Vive Pro headset, has two cameras and infrared illuminator to record cheek, lip, and jaw movements, and then translates these signals into virtual facial expressions.
  • The hardware segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020 due to increasing demand for smartphones and other electronic devices. Surge in demand for VR headsets in gaming arcades, theme parks, and medical training institutes is propelling revenue growth of this segment.
  • The Head-Mounted Display (HMD) segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2020 due to increasing application of this technology in enterprise and consumer products. The technology provides an immersive environment through the devices. HMD is also used by military pilots to navigate dangerous situations or territories. HMDs provide critical information via the visor of a pilot’s helmet, which helps in improving response time and reducing manual need of effort to gain these insights.
  • In the healthcare sector, VR is expanding and offering various benefits such as robotic surgery, surgery simulation, and skill training. The major advantage of this technology is training and acquiring new skill to practice in a safe environment. It also helps medical specialist to gain better insights as compared to MRI scans, and eliminates the need for actual invasive surgeries and procedures. Virtual reality have the ability to reduce pain in patients with nerve injuries and can also boost the dysfunctional pain suppression system, helping people suffering from pain.
