Market for gesture tracking devices in VR projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Gesture tracking devices have been an integral part of VR hardware, mainly because these are used for consumer applications. Gaming with gesture-tracking devices provides an enhanced experience of the virtual world to the users. The market for gesture-tracking devices is expected to witness the highest growth in the VR market. Gesture-tracking devices can also be helpful for surgeons during a surgery. During surgical intervention, a surgeon needs to control surgical devices such as X-ray, drill, and endoscope; a contact-free, gesture-based controller can be used by the surgeon, which, in turn, would enable a touchless approach.
APAC to lead the AR VR market during the forecast period
APAC is expected to exhibit strong growth in the next few years owing to the significant contribution of Japan, China, and South Korea in the implementation of AR technology. APAC is expected to lead the VR market by 2025 due to the high demand for VR devices in the region and the emergence of local manufacturers in China, providing VR devices at a low cost. The strong growth of the healthcare application in China and Japan is projected to boost the healthcare market in the APAC region. The gaming industry in this region has witnessed strong growth and will act as a driver for the growth of the AR market in the region.
