U.S. Spatial Computing Market Size & Trends

The U.S. spatial computing market size was valued at USD 35.9 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.7% from 2024 to 2030. The increasing demand for immersive experiences, remote collaboration, and better user experiences is prompting the adoption of spatial computing technology across various industries. Spatial computing has applications in various industries, such as gaming & entertainment, healthcare, education, etc. These industries are leveraging spatial computing to enhance customer experiences, improve training and simulation, streamline design and prototyping processes, enable remote collaboration, and unlock new business opportunities.

U.S. Spatial Computing Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

In 2023, the U.S. accounted for over 25.0% of the spatial computing market. Spatial computing blends data from the world around them in a natural way. It enables users to engage with digital content more naturally and intuitively by seamlessly blending the digital and physical realms, enhancing human-computer interaction and creating immersive experiences. It helps users explore virtual worlds, interact with virtual objects, or visualize data in 3D space by providing a level of immersion which is not possible in traditional computing interfaces.

Spatial computing brings AR, VR, and MR technologies together which enables seamless transitions between virtual and real-world elements, creating a spectrum of experiences and expanding the possibilities for advanced computing applications. Moreover, the integration of AI and IoT technologies is helping in the creation of more intelligent and improved user experiences in the market.

With the integration of AI algorithms in spatial computing, real-time object recognition, scene understanding, and personalized interactions have become possible. IoT connectivity enables computing devices to interact with the physical environment and other connected devices, creating a seamless and interconnected ecosystem. For instance, gaming and entertainment industry has transformed gaming experiences by enabling the players to immerse themselves in virtual worlds and interact with virtual objects.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a high degree of innovation as spatial computing is an evolving technology. For instance, in June 2023, Apple Inc. launched Vision Pro, a spatial computing device that uses the M2 and R2 chipset for streaming images to the display within 12 milliseconds for a virtual, lag-free, real-time view of the world. Its unique dual‑chip design enables spatial experiences on Vision Pro. The powerful M2 chip simultaneously runs visionOS, executes advanced computer vision algorithms, and delivers stunning graphics, all with incredible efficiency.

U.S. Spatial Computing Market Concentration & Characteristics

Instances of mergers and acquisitions are also frequent in the market. In May 2022, Google announced the acquisition of California-based startup Raxium, an innovator in single panel MicroLED display technologies. The acquisition is expected to help Google build next generation of AR/VR headsets.

Impact of regulations is also high in the market as concerns about data privacy and security play a significant role in spatial computing. Spatial computing devices collect and process users’ data as well as third-party data. This becomes particularly important in industries such as healthcare and finance, where data privacy and security are of the utmost importance.

End-use concentration is also high in the market as sectors such as healthcare, education, aerospace and defense, automotive, gaming, consumer electronics, government and public sector, information and technology, energy and utilities, etc. are integrating the spatial computing technology to improve workflows, enhance visualization, and enable remote collaboration.

Solution Insights

Based on solutions, the hardware devices segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share of over 65.0% in 2023. Head-mounted displays such as virtual reality headsets and augmented reality glasses provide users with immersive visual experiences by overlaying digital content in the real world or creating an entirely virtual environment. Wearable devices such as smartwatches, fitness trackers, and clothing embedded with sensors can contribute to the spatial computing ecosystem.

The services segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The services component allows for more efficient and cost-effective maintenance of spatial computing systems, as well as faster response times when issues arise. For instance, healthcare providers may require different spatial computing solutions than retailers or manufacturers. This has led to a growing number of specialized service providers in the market.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the VR segment dominated the market with the largest revenue share in 2023. Spatial computing involves the integration of VR to create an immersive and interactive experience for users. The use of VR technology in spatial computing allows for more realistic and engaging experiences, with applications ranging from gaming & entertainment to education, healthcare, and training, among others. The growth of the segment is further expected to be fueled by advancements in AI, which enable more personalized and intuitive experiences for users.

The MR segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The segment combines AR and VR to create immersive and interactive experiences by overlaying visual objects onto the real world in a realistic and interactive way that seamlessly blend virtual content with the real world. This creates a sense of presence and allows users to interact with virtual content more naturally and intuitively.

End-use Insights

The gaming industry dominated the market with the largest revenue share in 2023 as spatial computing creates immersive and entertaining experiences that allow users to interact with virtual objects and characters. Players can use hand gestures or eye-control with this technology rather than using keyboards or joysticks. In June 2023, Apple launched Apple Vision Pro that combines digital content with the physical environment allowing users to play with enhanced audio and support for renowned game controllers.
