Research and Markets Logo

The virtual reality (VR) market is expected to grow from USD 7.9 billion in 2018 to USD 44.7 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 33.47% during the forecast period.

The penetration of HMDs in the gaming and entertainment sector, huge investments in VR market, advancement of technology and growing digitization, and availability of affordable VR devices are the major factors fueling the growth of the overall market. However, display latency and energy consumption affecting the overall performance of VR devices and health concerns relating to low resolution and lack of movement might restrain the overall growth of the market.

Fully immersive technology to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period

The fully immersive technology-based VR devices enable users to feel the virtual environment in a realistic way. Head-mounted displays (HMD) or virtual reality goggles offer a fully immersive virtual reality environment. The realistic and interactive real-time environment offered by these devices makes them ideal for gaming and entertainment. The increased use of fully immersive technology in the HMDs will drive this technology in the VR market.

Software to register high CAGR in virtual reality market during forecast period

VR devices have been available from last 3-4 years in a good number, though the content creation for the VR devices was lacking. Recently, the VR content creation has witnessed a high growth owing to the high demand. This will boost the VR software market growth in the next 5 years. The cloud-based services for VR and SDKs will play a crucial role in the development of the VR software market.

APAC to lead virtual reality market by 2024

Growing consumer and commercial markets with increasing investments in countries such as Japan, India, and China would boost the growth of the VR market in APAC. The use of VR has increased in commercial and consumer markets in APAC owing to the easy availability of VR technology in the region. The low-priced VR headsets are easily available in APAC countries, which would, in turn, help the market in APAC grow at a high pace. APAC will grow at the highest CAGR and is also expected to lead the VR market by 2024.
