Large enterprises segment to maintain lion’s share by 2025

The large enterprises segment accounted for nearly two-thirds share of the total revenue in 2017 and is expected to maintain its lion’s share through 2025. Large organizations can leverage the advantages of AR and VR, as they are not affected by budgetary restraints as in the case of small enterprises. Large enterprises use the advantage of scale to efficiently invest in equipment that are necessary for training employees and improving customer experience. However, SMEs would register the highest CAGR of 66.40% from 2018 to 2025. Though the cost of VR equipment still affects and acts as a barrier for smaller businesses; however, the cost is anticipated to reduce in future, leading to increase in adoption of AR and VR among SMEs. Moreover, AR is expected to play a major role in driving the growth of the SME market.

Consumer segment to dominate in terms of revenue by 2025

Among applications, the consumer segment held 61% of the market share and would continue its dominance through the forecast period. This segment is largely driven by increased consumption of video content among millennials and growing popularity of gaming and entertainment. However, the enterprise segment would grow at the fastest CAGR of 70% through 2025, owing to the increased adoption of AR and VR by enterprises, especially in manufacturing, healthcare, and retail sectors.
