Augmented Reality Market Dynamic

The healthcare sector is dominating other sectors in the adoption of AR devices, which is one of the crucial drivers propelling the growth of the augmented reality market size in the healthcare industry. The AR is important in the healthcare industry and provides a virtual view of a patient, which helps the surgeon to determine the patient’s health condition. With the help of AR technology, the surgeon can conduct minimally invasive surgeries. It also helps in enhancing fitness and teaches complicated subjects to medical students. Furthermore, as per the augmented reality market size global forecast, the remote assistance and association from enterprises increases that assist in workflow management and optimization again contributing to the market growth. Therefore, companies use Augmented Reality (AR) based apps to track, identify, and resolve technical problems and work, such as manufacturing and repairing production lines.

According to the augmented reality market research report, the growing adoption of smartphones, smart glasses, and other handy and wearable devices is further fueling the usage of mobile AR technology to give enveloping experiences. Therefore, to offer interactive and customized experiences to the customers, various companies focus on bringing innovative AR technology. In June 2018, Hennes & Mauritz AB’s brand Monki incorporated AR technology to offer a 3D experience to its customers through smartphones while presenting garments by the online platform. By the use of AR technology, one can transform indoor navigation. For example, MobiDev, with the help of its ARcore platform, illustrates indoor navigation by constructing an optimal route to the desired destination and reflecting it on mobile devices.
