Global Virtual Reality in Gaming Market to Grow at a CAGR of 23.5%, during Forecast Period

Published | 01 October 2022

Global Virtual Reality in Gaming Market is booming as a result of more people using connected devices like smart TVs, projectors, monitors, smartphones, and others in gaming, as well as more people using three-dimensional real-time environments with cutting-edge graphics and sound technology.

A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the Global Virtual Reality in Gaming Market was worth USD 8.48 billion in the year 2021. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 23.5%, earning revenues of around USD 39.18 billion by the end of 2028. The global virtual reality gaming market size is being driven by an increase in disposable income and advancements in gaming technologies such as interactive graphics, 3D effects, and motion tracking. Because of the increase in disposable income, users are looking for new entertainment sources and VR gaming systems. In gaming, virtual reality refers to applications in which users interact with a 3D (three-dimensional) environment while playing. These experiences are made possible by virtual reality in gaming devices' interactive features and graphics. The market is also being propelled by an increase in demand for VR gaming accessories. Wireless controllers, gloves, head-mounted displays, motion-sensing devices, and bodysuits outfitted with cutting-edge motion sensors are among the VR gaming technology accessories. The market's key players are focused on R&D in gaming software, hardware, and services. However, the high price of the VR components, in turn, may act as a huge restraining factor for the market growth.

Increasing Cloud Technology and Virtual Reality Gaming Integration

Businesses in the market are implementing cloud technology to provide improved gaming experiences. The ability to modify game libraries and store games for quick user profile access is made possible by cloud technology. The technology also provides a wide range of features, such as live streaming, limitless storage, and connected devices, which will help the future of the online gaming industry. The use of the cloud lessens the need for expensive offline gaming DVDs and discs. Numerous gamers are greatly discouraged from purchasing expensive gaming equipment due to the high initial cost, but thanks to recent advancements in cloud computing technology, this is no longer the case.
