This IDC study provides the worldwide augmented and virtual reality hardware forecast for the 2021-2025 period."The worldwide augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) market will experience continued growth, thanks to a slowly warming reception and an increase in the number of new devices arriving to market," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director, IDC's Augmented and Virtual Reality team. "What bears close monitoring is how these will appeal to different markets. Virtual reality has long been the stronghold of consumers through gaming and media consumption, but enterprises are slowly warming to the notion of leveraging VR for training. Conversely, AR has long been the domain of commercial users to drive productivity. That same notion will be carried to consumers looking to boost their own personal productivity. Watch as these market segments gain a foothold in the years to come."
