The global mixed reality in healthcare market is projected to show significant growth over the forecast period. It is estimated that the global mixed reality in healthcare market is expected to register a CAGR 26.3% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2024, with an estimated market value of USD 2,475 million in 2024.
Mixed Reality (MR) is an amalgamation of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), defining the polar ends of a spectrum known as virtuality spectrum or mixed reality spectrum. Augmented reality delivers digital components, whereas virtual reality enables immersive imitation of real-life settings. MR has widespread applications in different fields of healthcare, varying from treatment to training and education. The global mixed reality in healthcare market is fueled by factors such as rapid improvements in the adoption of sensor technology, increase in the user acceptance, increased applications of MR in disease care and treatment, and increasing workload of healthcare professionals. Additionally, the benefits of MR systems such as operational efficiency, increased service quality, and reduced human effort is also projected to drive the growth of the mixed reality in healthcare market. For instance, in 2018, Samsung completed a randomized control trial that showed that VR therapy reduces pain by 52%.
On the other hand, the lack of adequate skill among medical practitioners, high investment costs, occurrences of technical glitches and the concern related to loss of data is likely to curb the growth of the market during the assessment period. Nevertheless, changes in regulatory policies are expected to reduce the impact of barriers over the forecast period.
Moreover, major companies in the market are involved in strategic acquisitions and collaborations to brace their position in the market. For instance, in March 2018, Samsung announced a partnership with Travelers Insurance, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Bayer, and AppliedVR to study a virtual reality for pain management.
