Virtual Reality Headset Sales May Drop in 2017
In 2016, many companies have taken courageous steps to enter virtual and enhanced reality worlds.
Many commentators approve of investments made in these technologies. IDC data is expected to exceed the market’s volume of $ 150 billion by 2020. However, the current reality and forecasts for the next year tells a different story.
Experts who closely monitor the virtual reality market say that in 2017 the demand for VR technologies may not be as high as it should be. Observers said that the high price of virtual reality and the lack of VR content are key factors in this case.
The demand for virtual reality such as Google Daydream View, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive also confirms this expectation to remain under expectation.
Some companies highly relies on VR
Slow growth or sales drop are not a big deal for huge enterprises like Google, Samsung and Sony.
But for companies such as HTC, that’s failing in the smartphone and tablet markets, this expectation can lead to some distress.
It is stated that Acer and Asus, which made significant investments in virtual and increased reality technologies, may be affected by delays in the growth of the market. Both companies are expected to launch new virtual reality sets in the first quarter of 2017.
