Japan Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Forecast, 2019−2023

By: Akira SugawaraSenior Market Analyst, PC, Mobile & Client Solution, IDC Japan


This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #JPJ44016519 and provides the results from the qualitative and quantitative analyses of the Japan AR/VR market based on information garnered until April 2019 and from IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Augmented and Virtual Reality Spending Guide 2H18, which was conducted in April 2019. "The VR market is forming a market ecosystem based on training and convenience, whereas the AR market is poised to grow once again because of the emergence of several new headsets in 2019. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be the first peak of growth, but there is concern about the subsequent temporary cooling of the market in 2021. Therefore, there is an urgent need to create new use cases for market expansion so as to overcome this hurdle," says Akira Sugawara, senior market analyst, PC, mobile, and client solutions, IDC Japan.
