  • Various companies believe that the continuous innovation in VR headsets and controllers is anticipated to boost the growth of the extended reality market during the forecast period. Moreover, most market players are providing free software development kits (SDK) to developers which is likely to improve the demand for better controlling feature over software in extended reality related devices. Meanwhile, the market is at the initial stage coupled with high investment scenario; the market is expected to witness high scale of advancements in short to medium term as compared to the long term.
  • Therefore, continuous innovation in technology is influencing the adoption of extended reality (XR) worldwide.

High Cost of Devices Expected To Hamper the Global Extended Reality (XR) Market

  • Extended reality (XR) devices that provide immersive augmented and virtual reality experiences are rather expensive and unaffordable by most customers. The high cost of extended reality (XR) devices reduces its adoption in small and medium enterprises. This is also a major restraint that is restricting the growth of the market. However, reduction in the prices of the devices is expected to increase their adoption rate. Thus, selling the devices at an affordable rate will help reduce the impact of this restraint.
