Overall, this is currently a multi-billion dollar market segment which is expected to grow 10x by 2023. Flexpoint and its' partners are poised to be a major part of this growth.

According to Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint VP Sales & Marketing, "Flexpoint technology plays a key role in these wonderful VR/AR peripherals.
