Augmented Reality (AR) in Foodservice – Thematic Research

Pages: 49 Published: March 18, 2022 Report Code: GDCG-TR-S050

The global Augmented Reality (AR) market was worth nearly $7 billion in 2020. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 35% during the forecast period.  AR is a technology that allows the user to see the real world overlaid with digital data. Furthermore, AR technology will be most valuable to foodservice companies in its capacity to drive consumer purchases and improve operational efficiency.

Adoption of AR for use in the workplace has been slow across the foodservice industry. The few use cases existing are primarily for remote collaboration, spurred on by COVID-19 restrictions and the changing nature of working practices. AR devices can also be used for independent training, inventory management, and improving health and safety standards in food preparation. Foodservice companies deploying these solutions will see greater operational efficiency and improved profit margins.

What is the impact of AR on the foodservice industry?

Foodservice can use AR to improve ESG strategies by reducing food waste and cutting carbon footprints. For example, providing visual information on menu items using AR can help reduce food waste, as the consumer can see an accurate representation of portion sizes and order the amount suitable for them.

Dine-in services were hit more severely by the pandemic than takeaway. AR solutions can complement other health and safety measures, such as social distancing, and help restore consumer confidence in dine-in services. AR-enhanced menus remove the need for physical menus and support contactless ordering when combined with a digital payment solution through an app or on the web.

AR will be a key technology in the future of work in food service, supporting operational efficiency and increasing productivity. Geographically distributed teams can join shared virtual experiences through AR solutions. Remote collaboration platforms will provide various benefits.

Investment in AR can help the foodservice industry reduce labor costs and improve workplace efficiency. The availability of AR menus, often combined with digital payment services, removes the need for a waiter to take the order and reduces the chance of mistakes. AR devices in food preparation can also help reduce food waste and, therefore, losses. Alongside reducing the number of staff on the restaurant floor through AR menus, staff could also be relocated to prioritize the quick production of menu items, improving the service to the consumer.

AR is also an enabling technology for the metaverse. Foodservice companies can invest in AR technologies to keep up with the metaverse hype. Partnerships with gaming companies running AR platforms with characters in virtual worlds can increase brand awareness.

What are the different value chains of AR market?

The value chains of AR market can be divided into five segments: semiconductors, components, devices, platforms, and apps & content.

Semiconductors

Semiconductors are one of the key battlegrounds in AR today. Chipmakers are now striving to improve their existing capabilities to suit the evolving requirements of AR, mostly around screen resolution, frame rates, processing speed, and connectivity.

Components

Much of the major action in AR components is around 3D sensors, cameras, audio, displays, and batteries. These components come together for positional tracking, motion tracking, gesture recognition, and machine vision.

Devices

AR-enabling hardware comes in various forms, including smartphones, eyewear (AR smart glasses), and AR headsets. For consumer AR applications, smartphones are the most used platform, while enterprises typically prefer AR headsets and AR smart glasses, which offer a broader range of functions.

Platforms

Building an AR ecosystem by incorporating both hardware and software is essential for the long-term success of any company in this market. The five prerequisites for a successful AR ecosystem are application programming interfaces (APIs) & SDKs, AR engines – games, AR engines – enterprise, AI, and application delivery networks (ADNs) & content delivery networks (CDNs).

Apps & Content

Content is a major area of concern for AR companies. Snap, Meta, Tencent, and ByteDance have merged AR and eCommerce into their social media platforms, offering users the ability to try on products virtually. The ease of viewing products online, coupled with the ability to interact with those products, gives users a novel and immersive shopping experience.

Which are the key foodservice companies associated with the AR theme?

The key foodservice companies associated with the AR theme are Dine Brands Global, Domino’s, McDonald’s, Restaurant Brands International, Sodexo, Starbucks, Wendy’s, and Yum! Brands.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
