The U.S. is the top buying country for learning technologies, accounting for 32.1% of all Extended Reality Learning revenues globally in 2021.
The XR market is being driven by surging demand for products in the corporate, military and healthcare sectors. A new sector with significant growth is travel and tourism, with VR being used to promote locations and tours.
The corporate segment has the highest growth rate at 18.8%. Revenues will surge to $1.8 billion by 2026. Federal government agencies are the second-largest buyers and will begin to reach parity with corporate buyers in the next five years.
“The current XR Learning Market is a lucrative value chain and the revenue opportunities are now quite abundant,” Sam Adkins, principal analyst, Metaari, said. “Investors are jumping in, especially in technology start-ups, where I’m seeing the most innovation.”
Catalysts contributing to the growing demand for XR learning products include:
“Within the next five years, VR/AR training and simulations will have expanded from the highest end use cases to widespread use in the workplace, such as training police officers, firefighters and surgeons,” Timo Toikkanen, CEO, Varjo, recently said. “By 2025, pilots will largely train in immersive environments and the first commercial space mission crews will have also trained with the help of VR/XR before takeoff.”
Metaari’s new 234 page XR report identifies more than 750 XR companies operating in the U.S. to help companies in this sector find domestic distributors and partners and investors identify potential merger and acquisition (M&A) targets.
