Mixed Reality Market Overview:
Mixed reality also referred to as hybrid reality is the integration of real and virtual world to produce new environments and visualizations where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. Owing to the immense potential that the technology possesses, the gaming and entertainment industries are projected to boost the mixed reality market growth. Also, the aerospace and defense sector contribute immensely to the growth of the market in the near future.
The global mixed reality market is expected to witness robust growth in the near future, owing to increase in demand for innovative and wearable products and also because of the benefits that the product possesses. The aerospace and defense can use the product for training programs, the product can be used in wide range of industries for training purposes. Also, the device can be used in schools; as it provides 3D images and with an interactive way of learning. The technology that is driving the mixed reality devices is pretty new. Unlike the augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) that replaces the real world with a simulated one, the mixed reality merges the real world with the virtual world and both the physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.
Some of the significant players operating in the mixed reality market are HTC Corporation, Intel Corporation, Magic leap, Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Facebook, Eon Reality, Inc., Google Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Seiko Epson Corporation, and Meta Company. These players are engaged in product innovation, and collaboration to expand their solutions across various geographies.
The global mixed reality market is segmented on the basis of components, application, devices, and geography. By components, it is bifurcated into hardware and software. By application, it is divided into industrial, aerospace and defense, medical, architecture, consumer electronics, and others. By device, it is classified into wired and wireless. By geography, it is analyzed across North-America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Top Impacting Factors
Rise in consumer electronics market, growth in adoption of mixed reality in games and entertainment industry, and demand of the mixed reality by the education sector drive the market. However, the technology is not so famous among the users and is also not cost effective. These factors hamper the mixed reality market growth.
Rise in Consumer Electronics Market
The rise in consumer electronics market is one of the many reasons for the significant growth of the mixed reality market. With the ever-increasing demand for the consumer electronics in the market, the development in the sensors and semi-conductor industries have be phenomenal. This has in turn uplifted the chances for the growth of the mixed reality market. The major components used in any mixed reality device is semiconductors and sensors. The better the sensors used, the better is the functionality of the device. As the quality, and functionality of the sensors and semi-conductors have increased and will continue to increase, the mixed reality market will also keep on increasing in parallel. The better and improved quality will ensure its path for market growth in the future.
Growth in Adoption in Games and Entertainment Industry
The gaming and entertainment industry has always been on a cut throat market. Intense competition is one of the key reasons why the players in these industries always want to come up with innovative ways to distinguish themselves from their competitors. The mixed reality is the best way to do the same as it makes the game and movies, not only more appealing but also more interactive. Also, the ready adoption for innovation by the people have encouraged both the industries to invest in such technologies. These facts combined will pave a smooth path for the development of the market in the upcoming years.
Rise in Demand from the Education Sector
The mixed reality will be of immense help for the students as well as for the teachers as it makes things interactive. The innovation can be used in various fields such as teaching the students and trainers can use such devices for teaching the trainees on the shop floor. This technology will not only ensure better and interactive ways of study but will also help in reducing the learning errors. This technology uses 3-D pictures and thus the learning outcome will be far better than the traditional systems, which only produces 2D images.
