AR & VR in Healthcare Market Research Report: By Technology (AR and VR technology), Offering (Hardware & Software), Device Type (AR & VR Device Type), Application (Fitness, Patient Care, Pharmacy Management & Others), End User – Global Forecast Till 2027
Market Research Future asserts that the global AR & VR in the healthcare market is estimated to demonstrate 30.2% throughout the forecast period (2018-2023). Augmenting demand to minimize healthcare cost is favoring the market growth. Augmented reality (AR) is referred to as a technology which adds value to the real world by displaying real-time media and digital information. Virtual reality (VR) is a technology which enables immersive simulation of the real-time environment. With the help of VR and AR, platform experts from several locations can join a surgical procedure virtually. AR and VR technology are not only beneficial for the doctors but also the patients and provide great convenience to the patients by allowing them to visit the physicians virtually.
Market Potential and Pitfalls
The AR & VR technology is highly penetrating the healthcare market and is likely to transform the entire healthcare sector. With augmenting funding from the government, the global AR & VR in healthcare market is estimated to flourish throughout the forecast period. For instance, the Digital Health Technology Catalyst program, in October 2018, granted USD 582,033 in order to collaborate between the Countess of Chester Hospital and University of Chester so that they can conjointly work on a VR project helping stroke patient practice. Additional factors influencing the market growth are the high adoption of AR & VR technology in fitness management, augmenting awareness regarding VR therapy, and rising penetration of connected devices in the healthcare sector. High incidences of chronic diseases, increasing funding from the government, and augmenting awareness about VR therapy are some of the other factors likely to stimulate the market growth throughout the assessment period. Moreover, rising convenience through virtual visits allows virtual reality to stay ahead in the healthcare AR VR market.
On the contrary, concerns associated with data privacy, lack of competence in the deployment of AR and VR solutions, and lack of expertise among the medical practitioners are some of the top barriers considered to vitiate the market growth in the coming years.
