By: Ramon T. LlamasResearch Director, Mobile Devices and AR/VR


This IDC study provides a forecast for the worldwide augmented and virtual reality hardware market for the 2018–2022 period.

"While 2017 was a year of significant slowdown for the AR/VR market, it was also a time for vendors to sow the seeds of future growth," says Ramon T. Llamas, research manager for IDC's Devices and Displays team. "A combination of price cuts, hardware launches, content availability, and — most importantly — a slowly warming end-user base all provide encouraging drivers for the overall market to drive volumes further."
