Growing use of Head Mounted Displays is driving the VR market

The global virtual reality market is bifurcated based on the device, components, technology, application and region. Based on the device, the market is segmented as head-mounted display (HMD), gesture tracking devices (GTD) and projectors & display walls (PDW). Decrease in the prices of HMD has led to growth in the use of HMD devices, in the field of consumer goods, commercial, medical, industrial sectors among others. Owing to this, the segment is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period. Moreover, the use of HMDs in important applications such as education and training, are the factors fuelling the growth of the virtual reality industry.

Further, based on the components, the market is segmented as hardware components and software components. Hardware segment is the dominating segment, contributing a major share to the overall revenue, owing to the low cost of the electronic components as well as vast use of sensors. Few disruptions in the VR technology, which are expected to have huge impact on the hardware market size, while the software is anticipated to dominate the components segment in future, due to easy and simple interface.

Based on the technology, the market is bifurcated as non-immersive and semi & fully immersive technologies. The semi & fully immersive VR technology was the largest segment in terms of size, during 2016 and is anticipated to continue dominating the market over the forecast period. This is due to the rising preference of HMD-based VR devices, which are employed with semi & fully immersive technology. Based on the applications, the market is segmented as aerospace & defense, commercial, entertainment and gaming, industrial, healthcare and others. The application in the field of entertainment and gaming accounted for the largest market share, owing to its high penetration in the gaming industry. Commercial application is projected to be the second-largest application segment to grow during the forecast period, due to the rising demand for virtual reality devices for educational training.
