3D Animation Market: 2018 Global Sales, Size, Share, Competitive Analysis, Upcoming Opportunities and Forecast To 2022

Market Highlights

3D animation refers to objects and humans moving in real-time as compared to 2D animation which lacks depth. It relies on popular methods such as keyframing, motion capture, and kinematics to give the illusion of motion. The global 3D animation market report by Market Research Future (MRFR) outlines the latest trends and opportunities within the sector owing to continuous developments in 3D software.

The study indicates that the increase in the use of 3D mapping technology for GPS and navigation is also driving the 3D animation market. It has been observed that the costs for adopting 3D animation technology are presently high, which results as a limitation to the 3D animation market.

The global 3D animation market size can touch USD 20.5 billion by 2022 by exhibiting a CAGR close to 12% from 2016 to 2022 (forecast period). Benefits of 3D animation for offering superior visual effects and greater movement and portray complex ideas in a simple to understand format can drive market growth exponentially. Rising demand for 3D mobile applications as well as animated effects in movies can work in favor of the market.

Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are major trends which can widen the growth opportunities within the 3D animation market. This is evident with the popularity of Pokémon Go, an AR mobile game which swept the nations globally. Its appeal to kids and adults by banking on nostalgia and interactive gameplay is likely to induce the need for similar games.

Blend of 2D and 3D animation can engulf the market due to being heavily used in all mainstream media for catching user attention. Need for designers which can invent new methodologies with the same software and trigger an evolution in working styles can boost market growth.
