Insight into immersive technologies and applications that help transform experiences into digital reality

Virtual reality (VR) is an interactive three-dimensional (3D) environment that is computer generated. Immersion into VR is an individual’s perception of having a physical presence in the non-physical world or the virtual world. New technologies and applications are evolving in this space to make an effective contribution to proliferating sectors such as entertainment and gaming, manufacturing, amongst others.

The objective of this research is to identify the key applications, understand development trends, and offer a roadmap for ecosystem participants in the immersive computing space. In brief, this research service provides the following:

A brief snapshot of the capabilities of immersive computing
Immersive computing technology value chain
The drivers and challenges of immersive computing implementation
Overview of the patent landscape and market potential
Key initiatives and adoption across regions
Needs of immersive computing across industries
Analysis of immersive computing technology development trends.
Innovative participants delivering immersive computing solutions for different industries
A sneak preview of the potential scenarios and emerging opportunities for stakeholders
An integrated technology roadmap – Competencies to be developed to meet market needs

1.1 Research Scope
Virtual reality (VR) is an interactive three-dimensional (3D) environment that is computer generated. Immersion into VR is an individual’s perception of having a physical presence in the non-physical world or
the virtual world. New technologies and applications are evolving in this space to make an effective contribution to proliferating sectors such as entertainment and gaming, manufacturing, amongst others.

1.3 Research Methodology
Step 1: To provide a thorough analysis of each topic, TechVision’s analysts perform a review of patents to become familiar with the major developers and commercial participants and their processes.
Step 2: Building on the patent search, the analysts review recent funding deals within the technology domain to get an insight into the activity in the domain from a funding perspective.
Step 3: The analysts then create a detailed questionnaire with content created to address the research objectives of the study, which functions as a guide during the interview process. While the analysts use structured questionnaires to guarantee coverage of all the desired issues, they also conduct interviews in a conversational style. This approach results in a more thorough exchange of views with the respondents, and offers greater insight into the relevant issues than more structured interviews may provide.
Step 4: The analysts conduct primary research with key industry participants, technology developers, investors to obtain the required content. Interviews are completed with sources located throughout the world. Our analysts contact the major commercial participants to find out about the advantages and disadvantages of processes and the drivers and challenges behind technologies and applications. Our analysts talk to the principal developers, researchers, engineers, business developers, analysts, strategic planners, and marketing experts, among other professionals.
Step 5: The project management and research team reviews and analyses the research data that are gathered and adds its recommendations to the draft of the final study. Having conducted both published studies and custom proprietary research covering many types of new and emerging technology activities as well as worldwide industry analysis, the management and research team adds its perspective and experience to provide an accurate, timely analysis. The analysts then prepare written final research content for each project and sometimes present key findings in analyst briefings to clients.
