Virtual & Augmented Reality in Retail and FMCG – Thematic Research

Pages: 52 Published: June 29, 2018 Report Code: GDCG-TR-S003

Alternative reality – which encompasses virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) – could become the next big computing platform. In VR, the user is immersed in an entirely artificial world. In AR, the user sees the real world overlaid with digital data.

In 2017, VR/AR headsets were shipped at an increased rate compared to 2016, driven by the launch of several consumer VR headsets, and it was a banner year for mobile AR application programming interface (API) frameworks. AR is where much of the action is likely to be over the next two to five years. Imagine wearing a pair of glasses with the computing power and functionality of your smartphone, activated by your voice, which recognizes what you see, where you are, and the context in which you require information.

Over the next five years, VR/AR apps will transform numerous industries, increasing productivity and creating new ways of working, playing, and shopping.

“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.”

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.

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.
