Analyst Opinion

The VR Advertising market is experiencing significant growth worldwide, driven by customer preferences for immersive and interactive experiences, as well as advancements in technology.

Customer preferences:
Customers are increasingly seeking unique and engaging advertising experiences, and VR Advertising offers just that. With VR technology, advertisers can create immersive and interactive campaigns that capture the attention of consumers and leave a lasting impression. This is especially appealing to younger demographics who are more tech-savvy and open to new experiences. Additionally, VR Advertising allows for personalized and targeted messaging, which resonates well with consumers who value relevance and authenticity in advertising.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the VR Advertising market is the integration of VR technology into various industries and sectors. For example, in the automotive industry, car manufacturers are using VR Advertising to allow customers to virtually test drive vehicles and explore different features. In the travel industry, hotels and resorts are using VR Advertising to showcase their accommodations and attractions, giving potential guests a glimpse of what to expect. This trend is driven by the desire to provide customers with a more immersive and realistic experience, which ultimately leads to higher engagement and conversion rates. Another trend in the VR Advertising market is the rise of VR gaming and entertainment. As VR technology becomes more accessible and affordable, the demand for VR games and entertainment experiences is increasing. Advertisers are capitalizing on this trend by incorporating branded content and advertisements into VR games and experiences. This allows advertisers to reach a captive audience who are already engaged and invested in the virtual world, resulting in higher brand recall and awareness.

Local special circumstances:
The development and adoption of VR Advertising varies across different countries and regions. In more technologically advanced markets, such as the United States and Japan, VR Advertising is more prevalent and widely accepted. These markets have a higher number of VR users and a greater infrastructure to support VR experiences. On the other hand, in emerging markets, VR Advertising is still in its early stages, with limited consumer awareness and adoption. However, as VR technology becomes more accessible and affordable, we can expect to see increased growth and adoption in these markets as well.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The growth of the VR Advertising market is also influenced by underlying macroeconomic factors. For example, the increasing penetration of smartphones and high-speed internet access has made VR technology more accessible to a larger audience. Additionally, advancements in hardware and software technologies have made VR experiences more realistic and immersive, further driving the demand for VR Advertising. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of virtual experiences, as people turned to virtual platforms for work, entertainment, and socializing. This shift in behavior has created new opportunities for VR Advertising, as brands look for innovative ways to engage with consumers in a virtual environment. In conclusion, the VR Advertising market is experiencing significant growth worldwide due to customer preferences for immersive experiences, advancements in technology, and underlying macroeconomic factors. As VR technology becomes more accessible and affordable, we can expect to see continued growth and innovation in the VR Advertising market, with advertisers leveraging VR to create unique and engaging campaigns that resonate with consumers.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on VR advertising revenue, which includes advertising that is integrated into the virtual world within video games and videos.

Modeling approach / market size:

The market size is determined through a top-down approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, as well as third-party studies and reports to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as consumer spending, internet penetration, 4G coverage, and historical developments.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, 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 data is modeled using current exchange rates. The market is updated twice a year in case market dynamics change. 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).
