SuperData Research has just released new research forecasting the VR market to 2020, including PS VR and Google Daydream.
Their data shows that PS VR looks set to dominate the market in 2016, with five times as many units sold (2.6M) as its home-based competitors, the HTC Vive (.42M) and Oculus Rift (.36M). PS VR’s nearest competitor is the much cheaper Samsung Gear VR, still more than 300,000 units behind at 2.3M.
Long-term Opportunity Beyond Gaming
While non-gaming VR barely even registers in 2016, this forecast predicts it will overtake games’ market share to become more than three times the size in the next four years, worth $31B against $9B worldwide.
VR/AR/MR Games Revenue Forecast
SuperData predicts that the combined worldwide market for VR/AR/MR games will grow from $1.2B in 2016 to $8.8B in 2020. VR will remain the largest sector in this timeframe, but AR will go from nothing to overtake MR for second place in 2020.
