Market Overview

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) displays are immersive technologies that revolutionize the way we perceive and interact with digital content. AR displays overlay computer-generated graphics onto the real world, enhancing our perception and providing additional information in real-time. They are typically achieved through headsets or smart devices, enabling users to experience a blended reality. On the other hand, VR displays create fully immersive virtual environments, blocking out the real world and transporting users to a computer-generated realm. VR headsets offer a 360-degree field of view, allowing users to explore and interact with real times and objects. Both AR and VR displays rely on high-resolution screens, precise tracking systems, and advanced optics to deliver immersive experiences. These technologies find applications in various fields, including gaming, education, healthcare, architecture, and more, unlocking new possibilities for entertainment, learning, and communication.

Restraining Factors

The augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) display market also faces several restraints such as the high cost of AR and VR devices and associated hardware limits their widespread adoption, especially among price-sensitive consumers and businesses. The concerns regarding privacy and security in AR and VR experiences pose challenges to market growth. The potential health effects, such as motion sickness and eye strain, associated with prolonged AR and VR usage present barriers to mass adoption. Additionally, the limited availability of compelling and high-quality AR and VR content restricts the market expansion. Overall, regulatory and legal challenges, including intellectual property rights and data protection, can hinder the development and deployment of AR and VR technologies.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the OLED segment accounted for around 57.8% market share

On the basis of display technology, the global AR and VR display market is segmented into OLED, LCD, and others. The organic light emitting diode (OLED) segment has emerged as the leader in the AR and VR display market, holding the largest market share. This is primarily due to several advantages offered by OLED technology. OLED displays provide vibrant colors, high contrast ratios, and deep blacks, delivering an exceptional visual experience in both AR and VR applications. Additionally, OLED panels offer faster response times, reducing motion blur and improving the overall viewing experience, especially in fast-paced virtual environments. The flexibility and thinness of OLED panels enable the creation of lightweight and compact AR and VR devices. Furthermore, OLED's ability to deliver true blacks enhances the immersion and realism of virtual environments. These advantages have led to significant adoption of OLED displays in AR and VR headsets, contributing to its dominance and largest market share in the industry.


  • In 2022, the HMDs devices hold the major market share with more than 37.4%
