Mixed Reality Market Analysis

The Global Mixed Reality Market is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of 41.8% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027). Mixed reality (MR) is becoming increasingly well-known in business processes, and this trend is only anticipated to continue. Initial costs, though, have been at higher price points, making it difficult for consumers to afford them, but they are still rather cheap for businesses. By overlaying information on top of the real environment, MR devices can significantly boost people's knowledge of their surroundings for businesses. Allowing distant workers to see the work accurately in real-time so they can give greater input can enhance teamwork. Successful MR material for the entertainment industry needs to elicit an emotional response from the viewer.

  • The increasing usage of mixed reality technologies in the global educational sectors is one of the primary factors driving the expansion of the mixed reality market share. Because it enables us to make things more interactive, the technology developed by the mixed reality industry is advantageous for both students and teachers. Additionally, it can be used by instructors to teach different students without requiring the importance of being at a specific location. Additionally, the mixed reality industry ensures that study methods improve and become more engaging. Additionally, using a variety of 3D images helps to reduce learning mistakes. This novel approach fuels the growing demand for mixed reality devices made by the education sector.
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved multiple surgical planning apps for Microsoft's Hololens mixed reality headset. Companies, such as Gaumard, collaborated with Microsoft for the future of simulation-enhanced healthcare learning. In May 2021, A new mixed reality (MR) training program called "Obstetric MR" for "VICTORIA" was unveiled by Gaumard Scientific Co. Its goal is to support students to become clinically competent in delivery procedures more quickly and effectively. The Obstetric MR system comprises a HoloLens 2 device preloaded with new software for the VICTORIA S2200 maternal and neonatal care model patient, packed full of sensors and is used as a childbirth training tool for medical schools, nursing schools, and hospitals worldwide.
  • Adopting mixed reality is picking up steam in several industries where having information at eye level is an advantage. Microsoft is increasingly emphasizing improving its products to broaden the scope of its application space. For instance, in March 2021, Microsoft was awarded a USD 21.9 billion contract by the US Army to manufacture HoloLens 2 headgear. Such improvements are also anticipated to impact how other end-user sectors adopt the technology.
  • Physical lockdowns across the major regions may act positively on the MR technology demand. Enterprises worldwide are trying to get their internal and wider geographically spread teams to communicate, collaborate, and find a path forward during the crisis. The diverse potential of XR application in recreating the tourism experience allows multi-stakeholders to overcome the travel restrictions and lockdown, allowing the crisis to act as an accelerator of the existing trends for XR adoption. Medical professionals using mixed reality headsets to treat coronavirus-infected patients. Using hand gestures, clinicians using Microsoft devices can speak with coworkers in a separate, virus-free room while viewing x-rays, scans, and test results. The requirement for PPE has decreased due to technology.
  • Mixed reality devices are also prone to risks since all the IoT devices interact with the Internet (i.e., the Internet is an unsecured network). The vulnerabilities exploited can be defined as risks. Moreover, preserving the data's confidentiality, integrity, and availability are data security and privacy concerns. In each state, this data could get vulnerable to cyberattacks. These cyberattacks could take a mode of computer-aided attack or a computer-targeted attack. Considering the risks of mixed reality systems requires analyzing them from two perspectives; the perspective of IoT architecture and the MR system.

Mixed Reality Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Mixed Reality Market according to our research experts:

Education Sector will Hold a Significant Market Share

  • With the use of Mixed Reality, classroom education can be interactive as MR can enable teachers to show virtual examples of concepts and add gaming elements to support textbooks. This will allow students to learn faster and memorize more information. The number of students experiencing difficulties concentrating and staying focused while learning is constantly rising. Admissionly shows that at universities and colleges, students face difficulties while focusing. Moreover, they face other mental health issues, like depression and anxiety.
  • Microsoft stated that there is a 22% improvement in test scores among students using immersive technology and a 35% increase in student engagement and retention when learning with immersive and 3D technologies through mixed reality. Microsoft’s HoloLens 2 offers several mixed reality apps, such as Fragments, RoboRaid, and ZARZL, and is more targeted at businesses and the education sector.
  • Even at a much younger age, statistics show students experiencing difficulties in staying focused, with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that the diagnoses of ADHD among K-12 schoolers are continuing to rise, with over 5.7 million children currently diagnosed. In such scenarios, using MR technology during classes enables students to concentrate on literally what is in front of their eyes. In a way, they are forced to interact with their study mates and exclude any potential side stimuli. Furthermore, According to Statistisches Bundesamt, in the winter semester of 2021/2022, the share of universities of applied sciences in Germany was 50%.
  • In May 2022, The Immersive Learning Research Program (ILRP), one of the largest research programs to date in immersive education, has attracted the participation of over 20 further and higher education institutions from the US, UK, EU, and Canada, according to Bodyswaps, a provider of immersive learning software that enables learners to practice soft skills in virtual reality (VR) with AI-enabled analytical feedback.
