AR and VR Headset Sales Expected to Skyrocket by 2020

Innovations and affordability in augmented and virtual reality will drive sales for the future.

Sales of augmented and virtual reality headsets will rise 108.3 percent by 2020, says a new report from International Data Corp. A projection on Campus Technology reports that with this growth rate, 76 million units of AR and VR technology will be shipped in 2020.

“The more affordable VR devices will continue to lead the market in terms of volume. However, IDC expects AR headsets to pick up momentum over the forecast as more affordable technologies and more original equipment manufacturers enter the market,” reports IDC.

In 2016, 10.1 million VR headsets were sold and Campus Technology reports this number is expected to reach 61 million in 2020.
