The increased affordability of VR gear is one of the major drivers of the virtual reality market growth in the education sector. Recent developments in technology and economies of scale have significantly reduced the cost of VR gear. Many companies providing VR headgear at premium prices have cut their prices and also developed commercial versions of their products. The advent of VR cardboard by Google and Samsung VR gear headsets, which are compatible with smartphones, have contributed to the decline in prices. Thus, the emergence of low-priced VR devices will boost the demand for VR content, leading to the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Virtual Reality Market In Education Sector: Increasing Number of social VR Spaces

The increasing number of social VR spaces is an emerging trend in this market space. Considering the criticality of the isolation faced by an individual in a VR environment and the possibility of developing motion sickness, many VR vendors are increasingly opting for VR spaces. For instance, Microsoft, through its AltspaceVR, provides various avatars and supports multiplayer sessions that allow students to socialize and interact with other users. The platform also provides a front-row feature wherein the students can be a part of an event as an audience. Facebook has developed its own Facebook Spaces VR platform, most likely to be released in 2019. It is expected to provide features such as virtual clubs and tutoring options for experiential and collaborative learning.

“Other factors such as the advent of 360-degree videos, increasing emphasis on foveated renderings, and the increasing need for experiential learning will have a significant impact on the growth of the virtual reality market value in the education sector over the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
