Industry professionals provided valuable takeaways on the current trends critical to the growth of augmented, virtual, and mixed reality development. For the fourth annual XRDC AR/VR Innovation Report, findings highlight new platform favorites, a shift in funding, growth trends, and more. Findings within the report are divided into multiple sections, each focused on key trends influencing the industry:
Oculus Rift surpasses the HTC Vive as top AR/VR/MR platform
Looking ahead, respondents believe that Oculus will remain popular. When asked which platform their next AR/VR/MR project will release on, 30% said the Oculus Rift, 28% said the Oculus Quest, and 24% said the HTC Vive.
Although a new platform, the Oculus Quest has quickly risen to popularity and secured a spot in the top 3 most popular VR platforms. This suggests developers are excited about the Quest’s promise of wireless, portable VR with 6DoF (Degrees of Freedom) controllers at a comparatively low cost.
A rise in client funding
23% of respondents indicated that they fund their AR/VR/MR work out of their own personal funds, down 3% from 2018. These results suggest that as more AR/VR/MR markets mature, more and more clients may step up to pay for well-made immersive experiences.
XRDC will return to San Francisco for its sixth annual event, taking place October 14-15, 2019 at the Fort Mason Festival Pavilion. To register for XRDC 2019, please visit: xrdconf.com/
