The global virtual reality market size is expected to reach USD 87.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 13.8% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing adoption of user immersion technology in industries such as education, industrial training, and healthcare, is expected to drive the growth. Additionally, internet penetration in the form of high-speed 5G networks has positively impacted the adoption of virtual reality technology due to fast and low-latency internet connections.
The growing demand for training and research across industries such as education, aerospace & defense, automotive, and more is also driving the growth of the virtual reality industry. For instance, in October 2022, Meta Platforms, Inc. launched the Meta Quest Pro VR headset with the Snapdragon Qualcomm XR2+ chipset. According to the company, the headset is targeted toward professionals and creators looking for high-end VR headsets.
Moreover, virtual reality has enabled e-commerce companies to let users shop virtually. This technology creates an interactive environment and helps improve the overall shopping experience for users. Similarly, the demand for virtual reality in the education sector is growing as teachers can conduct interactive academic sessions on VR-based online platforms to facilitate better collaboration.
North America is anticipated to hold a significant share of the virtual reality industry over the forecast period owing to the dominance of technology companies in the region. The region’s rapid technology penetration and availability of new VR products are expected to increase the demand. Additionally, the emergence of various start-ups related to VR is expected to help create opportunities for the market.
