Subscribe AR & Mixed Reality

ABI Research’s AR & mixed reality coverage examines enterprise end applications, services and platforms. We strive to identify, understand, and quantify the technologies, business models, and ecosystem components driving adoption. Central to this is a market purview that goes beyond AR/MR hardware to capture software and service opportunities–in terms of both revenues and, ideally, cost savings– for a cohesive view of the supplier market.

Augmented and Mixed Reality Devices and Enterprise Verticals

This is the most recent iteration of ABI Research’s Augmented Reality database. Previous versions of this database included Virtual Reality data as well, but this has been moved to an independent database, MD-VR-104.This research contains data on the augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) markets. Smart glasses are the primary device type tracked, segmented between binocular (two displays) and monocular (one display) form factors, along with high-level breakouts for mixed reality shipments and consumer/enterprise splits. This data includes shipments, install base, device revenues, and value chain revenues, segmented both by vertical and by region. Verticals include Healthcare, Energy & Utilities, Manufacturing, Logistics, Education, Media & Entertainment, Government & Military, Retail & Marketing, Transportation, Tourism, Insurance, Sports and Fitness, AEC, and Other. Data is representative of the global market, with regional breakouts for North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. Use cases and use case active users are included, specific to each vertical.

$1.7 Billion Flexible Display and Sensor Manufacturing Facility Nears Completion

3Q 2017

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Royole Corporation announced the expected completion of a US$1.7 billion facility dedicated to the mass production of flexible displays and sensors. While the privately held company has only been around since 2012, the 2014 debut of a 0.01mm-thick, full-color active matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) flexible display, which it claims is the thinnest of its kind, and a clear push to etch its place among a select group of players with a shot at seriously shaking up the supplier landscape, put it ahead of more mainstream market developments.

Mixed Reality: What it Means to the Enterprise Market

Augmented Reality (AR) is beginning to cement a place in the technology ecosystem, but Mixed Reality (MR) has yet to see a notable level of understanding, interest, and implementation. This webinar will outline the differences between MR and the other “X” reality markets—augmented, merged, and virtual—and what these differences mean regarding use cases and opportunities surrounding mixed reality in the space.
