Augmented Reality (AR) is the augmentation of a real or physical world environment in a direct or indirect way using computer generated sensory input. Virtual Reality (VR) is the complete simulation of the physical environment virtually with immersion of the individual in a scenario varying – non, semi and fully immersive. While high costs of components, size of products limited the scope of the VR and AR devices a few years back, both the markets are seeing resurgence due to two primary reasons – Reduction of component costs and improvement of gesture recognition systems. This has led to a wave of consumer and industrial applications with many start-ups and traditional companies trying to combine VR-AR into their product portfolios.
Augmented reality apps are being used in the healthcare industry: surgical pre-operation assessment medical simulation minimally invasive surgery rehabilitation. These applications and use cases are well documented and commercialized. Similarly virtual reality is also being used in the healthcare industry for applications like fully immersive 3D simulation experience for doctors, nurses, as a diagnostics tool, in surgery, phobia treatments, PTSD, autism treatments and dentistry etc. The global market for augmented reality and virtual reality in the healthcare market is expected to grow from $1.2 bn in 2014 to around $2.54 bn in 2020 according to IndustryARC. This report gives an in-depth segmentation of the market by product types like spatial AR, Vision AR, semi-immersive VR, and fully-immersive VR.
