Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on the AR & VR market. AR and VR enable consumers to experience a new dimension, using either a headset or installed units, as they combine the real and virtual worlds. Consumer revenue figures refer to revenues relating to AR hardware, AR software, VR hardware, VR software, and spending on AR and VR advertising. Both digital and non-digital revenues are included.

Modeling approach / Market size:

Market sizes are determined through a top-down approach, building on specific predefined factors for each market market. As a basis for evaluating markets, we use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, as well as third-party studies and reports. In addition, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific associations, such as consumer spending, internet penetration, 4G coverage, and historical developments. This data helps us estimate the market size for each country individually.


In our forecasts, we apply diverse forecasting techniques. The selection of forecasting techniques is based on the behavior of the relevant market. For example, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are level of digitalization, adoption of technology, GDP per capita, and internet penetration.

Additional notes:

The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. The data is modeled using current exchange rates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war are considered at a country-specific level. In some cases, the data is updated on an ad hoc basis (e.g., when new, relevant data has been released or significant changes within the market have an impact on the projected development).
