Market Driver:

Increasing Adoption of Augmented Reality in Advertising

In advertising sector, the demand for augmented reality is growing rapidly because of numerous reasons. Advertisements created by using AR technology are more interactive and lifelike as compared to other advertisements that helps in creating an emotional connect with the customers. In addition, the technology is more cost effective as compared to conventional methods and is more impressive than print advertisements.

Market Restraint:

Privacy Issues in Augmented Devices

The major limiting feature of AR technology is privacy issue, the technology is based on the compilation, scrutinizing, and reorganizing data, which raises issues about privacy. Data such as biometric data, real time monitoring and device usage history are usually collected by the augmented devices that can be a matter of legal concern. Another unique issue related to AR is that it captures data of users and of the individuals around the users. For instance, an AR smart glass autonomously screen the environment of the user in which other individuals are also involved that can influence the privacy of the individuals in the surrounding. The developers of AR devices can resolve the concern by standardising the data usage.

Thus, privacy issues in augmented devices may restrain the growth of the augmented reality market, during the forecast period.
