Virtual reality market to surpass $ 56 billion by 2026

Published

on

According to experts from the analytical company ABI Research, 2020 has seriously accelerated the development of the virtual reality (VR) market, and this influence will continue in 2021. Consumer interest in VR has skyrocketed as the bubble created around location-based virtual reality, which once made up a significant portion of the entire VR market, has burst. Interest in use in slot machines and other entertainment is slowly returning, while home use remains a stable growth area, especially in virtual reality games.

Analysts predict robust growth in both enterprise and consumer virtual reality segments over the next five years, at an annual average of 42%. If this forecast comes true, 50.1 million VR headsets will be shipped in 2026, and the revenue of the entire VR market will exceed $ 56 billion.

Standalone headsets will account for nearly 80% of total shipments in 2026, up from 44% in 2021. Analysts cite the Oculus Quest 2 as a successful example of this category. Wired headsets will primarily target high-end PC applications. At the same time, the simplest solutions, which are smartphone mounts, are likely to disappear completely from the market. When it comes to software and content, consumer VR is still primarily focused on games.

Former Facebook employee Frances Haugen criticized the company’s decision to transfer correspondence in its services to end-to-end encryption.

The introduction of end-to-end encryption in Facebook messengers could negatively affect the privacy of users and lead to increased surveillance by intelligence agencies. This opinion was expressed by a former employee of Mark Zuckerberg’s company, Frances Haugen, reports TASS.

According to her, after the launch of encryption in the Messenger application and the social network Instagram, which are owned by Facebook, the company will lose the ability to track possible “malicious operations of special services representatives.” “End-to-End Encryption Will Allow Facebook to Eliminate [от модерирования контента] and serve as an excuse for inaction, “Haugen said ahead of her October 25 speech in the British Parliament as part of discussions on online security bill.

The social network itself does not agree with this point of view. In their opinion, the introduction of end-to-end encryption in Facebook Messenger and Instagram applications, on the contrary, is aimed primarily at protecting the privacy of users and will protect them not only from foreign surveillance, but also from hackers.
