AR/VR Chip Market Outlook - 2026

The global AR/VR chip market size was valued at $1.38 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $7.76 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 23.3% from 2019 to 2026. Augmented reality is a technology that uses the existing user’s environment and overlays the digital or virtual content or information over it. Augmented reality applications are developed on special 3D programs that enable developers to integrate contextual or digital content with the real world. While virtual reality is also a three-dimensional (3D)—computer generated environment—which completely immerses end users in an artificial world without seeing the real world. This report includes, the revenue generation from the sale of augmented and virtual reality enabled hardware and content.

The growth of the AR/VR chip market is driven by rise in demand for AR/VR chip in gaming vertical, cost-efficient benefits of augmented and virtual reality based solutions, and surge in need for the adoption of AR/VR in various applications. However, resistance to adopt the augmented and virtual reality technology and lack of investments in R&D restrain the growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements and introduction of industry-specific solution offer lucrative opportunities for the AR/VR chip market growth.

ARVR Chip Market

Augmented reality (AR) technology allows the computer-generated data or imagery to overlap physical objects accurately in real time. AR enhances the perception of users, and provided information helps them perform tasks in the real world. The major components of an AR system are displays, sensors, and embedded electronics. It is widely used in areas such as employee training and video conferencing.

Virtual reality (VR) technology enables the users and provides the virtual environment by using computer hardware and software. It provides a fully immersive environment in which the user can interact with objects similar to those in the real world. VR technology works on components such as gesture recognition systems, sensors, and embedded electronics.

Augmented and virtual reality offers a cost-effective and efficient solution in training and skill development as it replicates the real scenarios by using augmented and virtual reality enabled solutions. For instance, in civil aviation or military application, it is costlier to utilize an actual aircraft to train a pilot. Further, it could harm the human as well. Whereas, augmented and virtual reality solutions create a virtual environment similar to the real world, where a trainee can understand and tackle challenges with strategic mapping. Moreover, in healthcare, training students or nurses or other medical professionals on live humans is unethical and could be harmful. Thus, augmented and virtual reality-based solutions provide valid tools to train medical professionals without compromising and harming one’s life.

Rise in demand for AR/VR chip in gaming vertical

Video game is one of the major applications of augmented and virtual reality technology. Over the past few years, number of gamers worldwide has increased at a rapid pace. This is attributed to increased demand for augmented and virtual reality-based games, which in turn drives the market growth. The smartphone manufacturing companies are increasing the number of gaming features in their devices for enhancing the overall user interface experience and to keep ahead of their competitors in the market. 

Lack of investment in R&D

Prominent players in the UK, Germany, and others are focused on delivering the product rather than investing in R&D activities. This is expected to restrict the growth of the market as novel solutions would not be produced to tackle existing challenges, which are yet to be solved. 

Introduction of industry-specific solution

Augmented and virtual reality solutions find high usage in various industries such as civil aviation, defense & security, healthcare, digital manufacturing, education, and entertainment. However, prominent players operating in the augmented and virtual reality market are projected to concentrate on the introduction of industry-specific solutions to expand their presence across various industries such as mining, oil & gas, and transportation.
