The global head mounted display market size is projected to reach USD 11,793.3 million by the year 2020, as per a study by Grand View Research, Inc. A head mounted display, or HMD, is a display device consisting of a small display optic, either in front of one or both the eyes. The continued adoption of technology and innovation in major industries such as gaming and entertainment, military and defense, simulation, sports, and healthcare, among others, has led to a widespread acceptance and adoption of these devices. Furthermore, there has been a sharp drop in silicon wafer costs globally, which has had a direct impact on micro-display prices, which account for a sizable percentage of the resultant HMD cost. Moreover, the growing demand for wearable, lightweight devices among a sizable global population is expected to be a key driving force for the HMD market.
Defense services are a key contributor to global demand, wherein head-mounted displays aid in security, imaging, and tracking. With the continued heavy investments by governments into their respective national defense infrastructure, there is a huge scope for sustained growth in the manufacturing and demand of innovative equipment, such as HMDs. The residential and consumer sector also has shown high affinity for such products, mainly for gaming and entertainment purposes, which has driven the market growth. Head-mounted displays offer a high degree of mobility and computing power, as well as a highly immersive and enriching experience. The arrival of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) in the consumer space has also heightened expectations of innovation from HMD manufacturers. Additionally, the rising demand from the automotive prototyping space is expected to offer a key growth opportunity for industry participants. Training and simulation is another major industry growth driver, as the technology is safe and feasible for trainees for facing scenarios that can be risky in real-life, such as driving and aviation.
The global head mounted display market is broadly segmented on the basis of product, end-use, and application. With regards to product, the market is classified into helmet mounted display and wearable glass; the major end-use segments include defense and consumer, with consumer end-use comprising AR, VR, and gaming. The notable application areas of HMD include imaging, security, tracking, and training and simulation. Some of the notable organizations to have invested and introduced novel products and services in the head mounted display industry include BAE Systems, Google Inc., Imagine Corporation, Seiko, Rockwell Collins, Epson, Vuzix, and Sony Corporation, eMagin Corporation. These companies have indulged in innovative product launches, mergers and acquisitions, as well as collaborations with major industry experts, as their major strategies to expand geographical reach.
