Description
This IDC study provides an updated forecast for the worldwide augmented and virtual reality hardware market for the 2018-2022 period."The worldwide augmented and virtual reality market is moving past its initial phases of first-generation devices and experiences toward more robust ones," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Mobile Devices and AR/VR team. "This will attract the attention of those who resisted at first, and needed further convincing that these devices could, in fact, provide value, particularly to the most fickle of customers. Given the investment from multiple areas, from component suppliers and application developers to enterprises of nearly all sizes, expect strong growth in the market for the next several years to come."
