Augmented reality headset technologies are almost ready
A technology and market report proposed by Yole Développement (Yole), focused on displays and optics for VR, AR and MR headsets, titled Displays & Optical Vision Systems for VR, AR & MR, reveals the technology, its evolution and details the structure of the industry.
Dr. Bouhamri, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole, stated: “VR and AR have been hot topics for decades. Therefore, during the past ten years, we identified a tremendous activity in this field: numerous startups’ creation, more and more big players involved in the development of new technologies, an increase in the number of patents filings as well as many investments and mergers and acquisitions.”
Therefore, big companies, small and experienced companies, or even newcomers are part of today’s playground and many are trying to play their cards right. Today, VR and mostly AR are believed to be the key to unlock the next generation of consumer products.
The report aims to provide a comprehensive analysis presenting the technical choices made by the leaders, as well as the promising startups. It also describes the latest technical innovations and the competitive landscape with IP inputs: the patent activity trends highlighting the decades’ long research in these fields follow the investment activity trends.
It is the first report proposed by Yole’s analysts focused on solutions for VR, AR and MR headset applications. Analysts made a fruitful combination of their expertise in the field of displays, microLEDs, optics and manufacturing to evaluate current and emerging technologies and explain the market evolution.
