VR and AR Sales Projected to See Tenfold Increase by 2025

There are a lot of new innovations and forms of tech out there that a fair number of individuals would end up being quite excited about, but with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that XR is perhaps the most talked about one. XR basically means Extended Reality, and it includes both AR as well as VR into the mix.

Suffice it to say that XR headsets will be a big part of tech moving forward because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up making the metaverse easier to incorporate into people’s lives. With massive corporations like Facebook rebranding to make the metaverse their main focus, it’s easy to see where this growth is coming from and there is a strong chance that this will result in more shipments for such headsets down the line.

The Counterpoint Global XR Forecast now estimates that XR headsets will see a massive rate of growth over the course of the next two or three years. The Oculus Quest 2 has already driven much of this growth in 2020 and 2021, and it has been forecasted that this rate of growth will further increase in 2022 with all things having been considered and taken into account. More headsets are being made that focus on XR which will result in more widespread adoption.

Apple’s upcoming AR glasses are likely going to make this rate of growth increase, and with these projections it seems at the very least somewhat likely that global XR headset shipments will cross 100 million by the year 2025. That would indicate a tenfold increase, and we might even see an adjustment of these projections because such innovative tech often breaks records and grows at a faster rate than anyone could have ended up predicting.
