Virtual and Augmented Reality (VRAR): Market Opportunity, Emerging Ecosystem and Leading Use Cases

Summary

The “Virtual and Augmented Reality (VRAR): Market Opportunity, Emerging Ecosystem and Leading Use Cases”, a thematic research report by GlobalData, examines the current state and outlook of the VRAR markets, emerging use cases as well as the evolution of the provider ecosystem. Driven largely by massive investments from the world’s leading technology competitors including Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Sony, the technology has become accessible to both consumers and businesses. Still, the adoption and usage of VRAR is minimal, and the penetration of VRAR headsets is extremely low. In this report, we explore growth drivers and key trends shaping the global VRAR market and identify leading use cases across consumer and business markets.

Development of the virtual reality and augmented reality (VRAR) markets turned the corner in 2016-2017, fuelled largely by an infusion of capital from leading tech companies and other investors. Despite robust momentum on the supply side, the VRAR market is still nascent, with the penetration of VRAR headsets very low relative to other computing devices. Consequently, leading players are focused on evolving the technology toward more friendly, wireless form factors, boosting device affordability and improving the user experience. The creation of a seamless solutions and apps ecosystem is key to VRAR market expansion. Now their focus is to develop compelling content offerings to drive users to their proprietary or open source platforms. As a result, VRAR applications are emerging across the industry to address a variety of use cases. The universe of potential VRAR apps is nearly limitless, from pure entertainment (gaming) to business productivity (virtual collaboration), all the way to life-saving tools (disease diagnosis and treatment). The market shift is creating opportunities for Telcos and other technology players in VRAR content creation, as well as content platforms and services.

The report is structured as follows –
– Section 1: The global VRAR market. This section provides an overview of the revenue opportunity, growth drivers and key trends shaping the global VRAR market, such as the increasing emphasis on device mobility and affordability, and the proliferation of VRAR solutions for Enterprise engineering, sales, operations and productivity.
– Section 2: The VRAR ecosystem. This section examines the VRAR ecosystem with a focus on headset and platform providers, and key use case applications showing potential in the near term.
– Section 3: Findings and recommendations. We conclude the report with a summary of VRAR market and ecosystem dynamics and opportunities for telcos in VRAR.

Scope

Some of the findings of the report include –
– The nascent VRAR market is fueled by large investments from technology players and the need for businesses to digitalize operations, combined with growth of the digital-first population. Early industry entrants face the typical challenges of new technology businesses, namely procuring device usability, overcoming user barriers, attracting content developers and identifying effective business models.
– Despite the strong momentum seen on the supply side, both the VR and the AR markets are still in the early growth stages. Adoption and usage of VRAR by consumers is still minimal, and the penetration of VRAR headsets is extremely low relative to other computing devices, such as smartphones and gaming consoles.
– The emerging VRAR solutions ecosystem is being shaped by six key trends and six leading device/platform providers. The industry is seeing early successes in leisure/entertainment, medicine, advertising, commerce, education and manufacturing, among other segments. Enterprises and public service organizations such as hospitals are testing VRAR applications as a means to improve service delivery and reduce costs.
– Telco stakes in the future of VRAR go beyond broadband connectivity. Participation in various segments of the VRAR solutions value chain can help Telcos accelerate 5G monetization to offset the huge impact that VRAR services will have on network traffic.

3D Printing – Thematic Research

3D Printing - Thematic Research Summary 3D printing is in its mid-thirties and is now approaching market growth that Chuck Hull could only have dreamt about when he invented it in 1983. By 2025, 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, will be a $32bn industry, rising to over $60bn by 2030. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2018 and 2025 will be 16%, according to GlobalData estimates, with software growing slightly faster than hardware, materials and services. Yet behind the optimism, competition and casualties are increasing: UK powder maker Metalysis recently went into administration before being rescued by Power Resources, a mining company; SLM Solutions, a German manufacturer of 3D metal printers, had a poor first half of 2019, selling a third of the machines it sold in......

China Tech – Thematic Research

China Tech - Thematic Research Summary This report looks at China as a theme within the global technology sector. It assesses the likelihood that China will meet the objectives laid out in the Made in China 2025 plan, and in President Xi Jinping's October 2017 update of that plan at the 19th National Communist Party Congress. The backdrop for this report is the escalating trade and ideological war between China and the US, which is likely to result in the development of two increasingly autonomous global superpowers by 2040, each with its own internet, technology stack, captive markets and global supply chains. This will cause China to drive ever harder to become self-sufficient - even dominant - in the key technologies that will secure its sovereignty and power. Key Highlights In so......
