AR and VR Smart Glasses Market Progresses as Players Launch Advanced Products :

Pune, India, May 2020, MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future has published a Half-Cooked Research Report on the Global AR and VR Smart Glasses Market.


Market Scope


Market Research Future (MRFR) reveals in its new research study that the AR and VR smart glasses market 2020 can procure an approximate growth rate of 13% between 2017 and 2023 (appraisal period). We will provide covid-19 impact analysis with the report. The report offers an in-depth analysis of the market following the coronavirus disease outbreak.


COVID-19 Analysis


The impact analysis on covid-19 by MRFR suggests that augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) solutions can significantly contribute while bracing for the impact of the pandemic, in addition to addressing the emerging challenges. The COVID-19 outbreak has compelled a number of pharmaceutical firms and healthcare institutes to enhance their R&D spending in artificial intelligence (AI), which is the core technology for several initiatives. Semiconductor is one of the many industries currently dealing with the pressure in terms of finance.


In the face of novel coronavirus, VR/AR is the best medium in e-learning, which is especially instrumental in the current lockdown situation that has led to closure of universities and schools. VR/AR and associated tools like AR and VR smart glasses are proving to be a valuable solution in offering remote assistance, preventing unnecessary travel. Considering the long-term impact of covid-19, governments are doing everything they can by implementing many policies and initiatives including exceptions in tax, reduction in interest rates and financial packages. The work from home strategies prevalent across companies, online classes combined with the rising trend of the BYOD policies are boosting the demand for connected devices, laptops, computers, and various storage solutions. While the countries are rushing to achieve a covid-19 breakthrough, this demand is only going to increase, boosting the growth prospects of the AR and VR smart glasses.


Top Boosters and Main Deterrents


In May 2020, Vuzix Corporation, a well-known supplier of AR smart glasses, received approval for its orthopedic navigation system called Knee+ for complete knee arthroplasty. Knee+ makes use of M400 smart glasses to accurately track the implants and instruments during surgeries. This is one instance of the many product launches and similar effective strategies adopted by the leading players to gain a better position and induce growth of the AR and VR smart glasses market.


The AR and VR smart glasses market can record considerable growth despite the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak, on account of advancements in mobile software and hardware technologies. Popular trends like increasing convergence between AR and VR, wearable devices and Internet of Things or IoT can also boost the product demand. This convergence between the technologies helps provide a highly immersive and interactive user experience.


Emerging conceptualization in almost all the entertainment-related aspects is touted to be an attractive opportunity for the AR and VR smart glasses industry. For instance, Magic Leap, an AR company has built a technology known as Dynamic Digitized Lightfield Signal, which shines on the user’s retina, allowing interaction between the real world and the fictional characters. The mounting demand for AR devices in medical training and education, inpatient care management, along with the rising focus of tech giants in AR and VR leading to higher investments, benefit the global market. Moreover, post lockdown, governments are busy promoting these technologies for multiple use cases, which can induce growth in the demand for AR/VR devices like smart glasses.  


Market Segmentation


The AR and VR smart glasses industry has been considered for device type, product, and application.


The device types covered in the study include binocular as well as monocular.


The products assessed in the report are integrated smart glasses, external smart glasses and mobile phone smart glasses. The external smart glasses segment could be leading shareholder in the market, because of their rising use in gaming and other applications. Increased adoption of cloud-based technologies also drives their demand in the AR and VR smart glasses market.


The application areas of AR and VR smart glasses include education, industrial, gaming, commercial and military. The lead is expected to be taken by the commercial segment given the soaring demand for virtual reality and augmented reality applications in retail and e-commerce sectors.
