    AR and VR Market Drivers

    Rising Investment from Market Leaders

    The market for AR and VR is rising due to increased investment from market leading players. Facebook integrating augmented reality ads into its application: Facebook will be providing users an augmented reality experience via advertisements in the application. Users of the application may view fashion goods such as eye glasses and shoes, and try them on virtually.

    IKEA introduced an AR app named Place, which enables Apple users to set IKEA furniture in their apartments and preview an interior before buying products. Thanks to this solution potential customers can choose furniture easier.. eBay collaborated with local firm to open virtual stores in Australia. eBay was one of the first movers in the market, when the industry began developing applications for this technology. Amazon is also offering VR experiences in select cities. Amazon is trialling VR with a view to boost their Prime Day sales. Another e-commerce giant, eBay did the same in 2016 in Australia. We can expect these big players raise the awareness of the technology through such events before potential app launches thus driving market awareness and thereby the market.

    Rising Focus on Improving Customer Experience

    Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality is a perfect mix of technologies to engage a customer. A memorable happy experience often leads to a satisfied customer. AR/VR technologies are likely to give an enriching experience to the customer which increases the chances of customer satisfaction significantly. As this technology is meant to make it easy and memorable for customers and it is likely to have an upper hand in leading to satisfied customers for companies as well. Customer engagement and Interactivity is not only required after onboarding the customer but is important to aware and attract as well. These AR/VR technologies can extensively be used as marketing tools to spread awareness about a product. This enhanced customer experience offered through AR and VR solutions will drive market growth.

    AR and VR Market Challenges

    Lack of Awareness of AR Content

    The biggest challenge with AR is the lack of awareness of AR content from consumers. AR and VR content can come in many forms, and this could be a cause for confusion. There’s still not much clarity over whether consumers are aware these tools are available to them, or if they realize they’re engaging with AR or VR when they use them. In a recent research study conducted by GWI in the UK and U.S., we found that over 90% of consumers in these markets are aware of VR, with around 65% saying they’re aware of AR. Awareness of AR hovers between the 70-75% mark among the 16-44 age group, but drops dramatically among 45-54s (56%) and 55-64s (44%). By gender, males (71%) display a notably higher level of awareness of AR compared to women (59%). This has resulted in limited focus on the AR market especially for applications outside gaming.

    AR and VR Market Landscape

    Product launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the AR and VR market in Commerce. Key Companies operating in the market include Amazon, Ikea, Facebook, Sephora, BMW, Harley Davidson, Sotheby and various other companies.

    Acquisitions/Technology Launches/Partnerships

    In April 2021, Inpixon announced the acquisition of a suite of augmented reality (AR), computer vision, localization, navigation, mapping, and 3D reconstruction technologies, including patents, trademarks, software and related intellectual property from Visualix.

    In April 2021, Facebook announced it has acquired Downpour Interactive, the studio behind the hit multiplayer military simulator Onward.

    Key Takeaways

    One of the major driver is the rise in adoption of smartphones. Hence, Mixed Reality devices incorporated/enabled with smartphones offering plug and play features would cause a paradigm shift to the mixed reality devices market. For instance, Lenovo has developed a new smartphone “Phab 2 Pro” enabled with Google Tango which offers mixed-reality features to an extent.

    Both Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technically elaborates the scope of E-Commerce and took the interaction to a whole new level altogether.
