Overview:

Virtual Reality (VR) technology and applications will undergo a substantial transformation during the pre-5G era, leading to mass adoption of full featured, mobile supported, and fully immersive VR technologies in post-5G era starting 2020 (along with the commercial deployment of 5G).

5G is expected to reduce network latency significantly, which will enable many previously tethered-only applications and services such as streaming 4K video, real-time remote control, haptic or tactile communications, and more. Coupled with the deployment of gigabit Ethernet fiber, 5G will transform the VR market, leading to a fully immersive experience with haptic capabilities becoming imbedded in many applications.

This research evaluates both the pre-5G VR base market as well as the what Mind Commerce refers to as the 5G Accelerated Uptake market in post-5G era. The report provides forecasting for VR by segments, applications, and regions including revenue forecasts for the period of 2021 – 2026. The report also forecasts VR shipment units and active users for the same period.
