Is VR Becoming Media’s Fastest Growing Market?

According to PwC, virtual reality is on its way up. In 2020 it made 31.7% more in profits than in 2019, making it the fastest-growing media segment of last year. This is, unsurprisingly, due in large part to VR video games. Additionally, 2020 was a unique year in that everyone was stuck in their homes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We at Acadicus are very excited to see how things change as the VR industry grows. While we are aware that most of this growth has been, and likely will continue to be attributed to the gaming possibilities behind VR, we follow the news with rapt attention.

PwC also seems to have a lot of faith in the growth potential of standalone VR headsets, which is something else for us in the medical VR industry to keep an eye on.
