New Growth Opportunities In Virtual and Augmented Reality | What To Expect in The Future
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Virtual and augmented reality is a suite of hardware, service and software components allowing end-users to visualize and experience virtual environment in real-time. Both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are expected to witness strong demand globally largely due to growing application in end-use sectors such as healthcare, education, gaming, media and entertainment, and others. Constant innovation in technology is expected to create demand for new VR and AR solutions in the coming years.

Furthermore, the demand for compact VR and AR hardware devices is expected to create demand for new VR and AR hardware devices. The VR and AR ecosystem players include hardware, service and software vendors. In the coming years, both software and service vendors are expected to play crucial role in expanding the adoption of VR and AR across multiple end-use applications. The revenue of the global VR and AR market stood at US$ 16,806.1 Mn in 2019; this is projected to expand at a CAGR of 86.0% during the forecast period (2019 to 2027) and reach US$ 2,408,749.7 Mn by 2027.

North America was the largest geographical market in terms of revenue in 2019. The presence of a large number of VR and AR players and high consumer demand led by high consumer disposable income is expected to support the demand for VR and AR in North America in the coming years. The U.S. is expected to be a significant contributor to the VR and AR market in North America. Europe is anticipated to contribute significant market share during the forecast period owing to demand from media and entertainment, manufacturing, and gaming sectors over the forecast period.

Due to high economic growth, Asia Pacific is expected to register significant growth for VR and AR solutions in the coming years. Countries such as China and India are expected to witness considerable adoption of VR and AR solutions. Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South American countries are expected to contribute less to the VR and AR market in the coming years as compared to other regions.

The demand for software and service by component segmentation is expected to remain significant in the North American, Asia Pacific and European regions. Media and entertainment, and gaming segments are expected to make major contributions to the growth of the VR and AR market in MEA and South America.

The hardware segment is anticipated to account for a significant market share among all other types of component segments in the VR and AR marketplace throughout the forecast period. The software and service segments under component segmentation are expected to register high CAGR growth as compared to hardware segmentation over the forecast period.

Media and entertainment, gaming, and healthcare segments are expected to contribute considerable market share under different VR and AR end-use applications over the forecast period. The automotive segment is expected to account for the highest growth rate over the forecast period until 2027 among all end-use applications.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Asia Pioneer Entertainment Holdings Limited has pledged to support the largest global environmental movement event – “Earth Hour” by turning off all unnecessary power and lights at 8:30p.m. on 28th Mar, 2020. It is the second year in a row that APE has joined this meaningful event.

The “Earth Hour” event was started by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) since 2007. Until now, more than 180 countries participate on this event every year. Thousands of landmarks across the world, including the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, Tower Bridge, etc., switch off the lights to raise the importance of protecting the nature. Ever since APE joined this symbolic “lights-out” event in Mar 2019, they have also taken a series of other measures such as decreasing the waste of paper and water. The Company is determined to take more actions in the future that will contribute to making the environment better.

“We received great support from our staff on last year’s event, besides turning off the unnecessary energy in the office, some of our team’s families also joined the event by switching off the lights at their own homes. This is the second year that APE participates at the “Earth Hour” event and we want to express APE’s commitment on providing a better environment by joining this event, and we encourage our staff and their family to join this event, like they did last year.” said Mr. Herman Ng, Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of APE.

IDnow is certified for operation of identification solutions via remote working
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

IDnow, a leading provider of Identity Verification-as-a-Service solutions with over 250 customers in Europe, has received official certification from TÜV IT for the operation of identification solutions via teleworking. This marks an important milestone for the industry to be able to operate and expand the necessary customer identification for banking and business processes even under exceptional circumstances.

The independent testing institute TÜV IT has certified the IDnow security concept for the operation of video identification and Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES) via remote working. The certification proves that the security measures carried out by IDnow in remote working achieve an equivalent security level as in the certified high-security IDnow Ident Centers. In consideration of the Corona (COVID-19) pandemic, this certification is now of particular importance, as it allows IDnow’s identification solutions for high-security processes to be used unchanged and further expanded even under the current circumstances.

“It is very important to us to be able to provide our customers with a reliable service at all times – especially in the current situation. With our certified concept, we are equipped to continue to offer our employees a safe working environment and to provide our service in a fail-safe manner. We can activate these measures at any time”, says Andreas Bodczek, CEO of IDnow. “Right now, we see an increased demand for remote identification as well as an increase in online credit transactions. We are proud that with our products we can make a contribution to ensuring smooth business and banking processes even in times of social distancing and that we can meet this demand of society”, he adds.

In addition to this remote working concept, IDnow is particularly fail-safe in comparison to the rest of the industry, with a diversification to eleven geographically distributed ID centre locations. The sites are located in various cities across Germany and Europe. A software specially developed for this purpose distributes incoming identification requests simultaneously to all ID centres. In this way, a disruption of one identification centre location can be compensated by other locations without delay.

“Over the past few years, we have invested heavily in the resilience and security of our technology and infrastructure. This is now paying off especially well for our customers. In the last few days we have received a significantly increased number of enquiries from major customers interested in our service as a highly secure identification solution”, says Armin Bauer, co-founder and CTO of IDnow.
