Mobile mixed reality market to top US$43bn by 2024

By

The global value of the mobile mixed reality market is forecast to exceed US43 billion in the next five years - with growth driven by 5G and edge computing - and a high percentage of consumer mixed reality attributable to smartphone apps, according to a new study from Juniper Research.

According to Juniper, the market will hit US43 billion by 2024, rising from $8 billion in 2019.

Mixed reality overlays interactive digital images and videos onto the real world through a smartphone, tablet or smart glasses, and the Juniper research urges smart glasses vendors to incorporate hardware to enable 5G and edge computing capabilities.

It also forecast that the enhanced content and services enabled by these technologies would usher in the second wave of smart glasses adoption by increasing the end users’ capabilities.

And the forecast estimates that 75% of consumer mixed reality will be attributable to smartphone apps by 2024, finding that the immediate base of nearly 6 billion smartphone users - combined with established content distribution in the form of app stores - will drive content development to smartphone devices.

“We expect social media applications to account for 40% of all consumer mixed reality revenues by 2024. Third party content delivered on these apps has been key to their success, therefore investment in content development frameworks will increase their app’s content library with minimal investment,” said research author Sam Barker.

The research also argues that leveraging cloud computing capabilities to deliver high-value mixed reality content is crucial to future success, forecasting that migrating processing power to the cloud would enable device vendors to reduce device sizes and minimise the social cost of public device use.

It further forecast that mobile games multimedia apps categories will benefit most over the next five years, accounting for 67% of all smart glasses apps by 2024.

LAYER 1 ENCRYPTION A KEY TO CYBER-SECURITY SOLUTION

Security requirements such as confidentiality, integrity and authentication have become mandatory in most industries.

Data encryption methods previously used only by military and intelligence services have become common practice in all data transfer networks across all platforms, in all industries where information is sensitive and vital (financial and government institutions, critical infrastructure, data centres, and service providers).

Get the full details on Layer-1 encryption solutions straight from PacketLight’s optical networks experts.

This white paper titled, “When 1% of the Light Equals 100% of the Information” is a must read for anyone within the fiber optics, cybersecurity or related industry sectors.
