Value of the virtual reality health care market in the U.S. from 2012 to 2017 (in million U.S. dollars)

Virtual reality health care market value U.S. 2012 to 2017 The growth of the virtual reality (VR) health care market in the U.S. has increased dramatically from 2012. As of 2017, the virtual reality health care market value was 976 million U.S. dollars. Virtual reality can be used in many aspects of health care including training, patient education, mental health therapy and pain therapy, to name a few. Virtual reality is just one of many exciting new technologies that can be used in patient care.
Health care emerging technologies

Health care emerging technologies include new and unique types of technology that are useful in patient care or health care training. These technologies can include virtual and augmented reality, 3D printing, and the use of drones in health care. For example, health care apps provide useful kinds of augmented reality that aid in health promotion, while 3D printing is being used in dental implants and other implantable devices.

Virtual reality public opinion

It has been estimated that health care uses of virtual reality will be the second largest share of the VR market by 2022. Given the evidence for an expanding market and growth in the field of emerging technologies in health, it is also important to consider public opinion. In a recent survey of U.S. adults over half indicated that VR could be useful in training surgeons. Another survey among U.S. residents indicated that a higher percentage of younger, rather than older, participants thought virtual reality will likely be used in medicine and psychology.
