Extended Reality Market Synopsis

Currently, the extended reality (XR) is at a burgeoning stage and consists of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) technologies. Extended reality is another immersive technology that offers highly digital experiences with photorealistic visuals by integrating on-device processing, 5G, and edge cloud processing technologies. The combination of AR and VR technologies allows the end-users, including individuals and enterprises, to experience highly digitalized content through standalone headsets. Also, according to industry experts, XR technology is expected to significantly transform from heavy standalone headsets to smart glasses that would provide real-time information, schematics, and related visuals.

Advancement in head-pose tracking, increased investment in AR and VR technology, an increase in demand for improving the customer experience, technological advancements in display, motion tracking, and emergence of 5G technology are some of the factors propelling the market growth.

However, the lack of highly intense connected infrastructure, interoperability issues of immersive 3D graphics, and power and thermal efficiency of standalone headsets are some of the hindering factors for the growth of extended reality market during the forecast period.  Extended Reality (XR) Market
