Cloud Strategies for Augmented Reality

Purchase

In this study, ABI Research first identifies four key drivers that will define the Augmented Reality (AR) market in the coming years. In order of immediacy, they are: the mixing of cloud computing and AR; the move toward more marker-less, vision-based AR; the Internet of Everything and the so-called sensor fusion; and advances in smart eyewear products. 

In particular, the role of cloud computing is becoming more crucial, as well as immediate, than what has been concluded in earlier research. Therefore, the study has a section with a dedicated look at how the cloud is affecting the market's growth trajectory. Discussed are also two related issues that are deemed to be of very high relevance in the longer term: data visualization and information overload. 

The included Market Data contains forecasts on the accumulated developer investment, the volume of downloads, as well as the total number of annual application releases. Additionally, there are also specific forecasts for the applications that rely on cloud-based image libraries, and the volume of images stored in such cloud libraries.
