Growing interest and increasing availability of VR products will drive sales of virtual reality devices in the upcoming years. With an estimated 171 million active virtual reality users by 2018, forecasts show that virtual reality hardware and software sales together will generate more than 5 billion U.S. dollars in revenue.

Other sources put the sales of head-mounted displays at around four billion dollars by 2017 and project the sales of VR software to reach over 2.5 billion U.S. dollars in the same year.
