Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR VR) Markets in Aviation - Global Forecast to 2025 - ResearchAndMarkets.com


The "Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR VR) Market in Aviation by Technology (AR, VR), Function (Training, Operations), Component (Hardware, Software), Application (On-Board, Off-Board), Product, Vertical, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The augmented and virtual reality market in aviation is projected to grow from USD 78 million in 2019 to USD 1,372 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 61.2% during the forecast period.

AR VR in aviation enables smoother and efficient operations that lead to cost savings in aviation functions such as manufacturing, maintenance, airport operations, airline operations, aviation training, among others. AR VR provides an immersive and interactive approach that connects the aviation ecosystem to improve the efficiency of various tasks. Smoother airport and airline operations lead to more revenue as aircraft spend less time out of service and more time flying.

By product, the gesture tracking device segment is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period

By product, the gesture tracking devices segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR because as the sensor and tracking algorithms advance, their demand for training and operations will increase. Gesture tracking provides a hands-free interface during manufacturing, designing, and training which gives the user an interactive and real life-like experience.

Gesture tracking in manufacturing is especially helpful as having one hand busy going through manuals or design blueprints can hamper efficiency. Gesture tracking will enable mechanics to go through digital instructions and 3D designs on AR headsets using gestures. Gesture tracking in VR enables an interactive experience for training where the trainees receive real-time feedback of simulations when they take action. These benefits are expected to drive the gesture tracking devices in AR VR at a high rate during the forecast period.

By technology, virtual reality segment is expected to lead the market for AR VR market in aviation during the forecast period

Virtual reality has been integrated by many OEMs, MROs, and airlines. Airlines such as Qantas and Lufthansa are using VR to prove in-flight entertainment and provide pilots as well as cabin crew training, whereas OEMs, and MROs are using it to train mechanics. This integration is expected to grow further as technology develops. Thus, the virtual reality segment is expected to lead the AR VR technology market in aviation.

Asia Pacific augmented and virtual reality market in aviation is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The augmented and virtual reality industry in aviation in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. Asia Pacific has experienced a boom in the aviation industry due to increased domestic travel, aircraft fleet, and airport projects. Due to Asia being a growing economy, technology developments in Asia are expected to be implemented at a faster rate in the coming years. This includes AR VR technology, as the developments in aviation will create a demand for AR VR technology to be implemented as the next step in this region.

The augmented and virtual reality market in aviation comprises major players such as Microsoft Corporation (US), Google Inc. (US), Eon Reality (US), Aero Glass (US), Upskill (US), Oculus VR (US), Jasoren (US), IMB (US), Fountx (Australia), and Sony (Japan), among others.
