Entry of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality in gaming sector to drive growth of market

Uptake of high tech and cutting edge technology in the gaming sector has been on the rise in a considerable manner over the last few years. This growth is also down to the factors such as growing young population, growing spending power of customers on entertainment, increasing penetration of smartphones, and enhanced connectivity of high speed data networks in the emerging economies.

Games based on augmented reality such as Ingress and Pokemon Go have experienced huge popularity among the end users as these games present a standout gaming experience, thus

In addition to this, smartphones not only are the medium for gaming, they also create several opportunities for these augmented reality technologies. It is very hard to create graphical overlays that is able to interact with the real world in an accurately crafted dimensions with the help of computer vision. However, smartphones win over this technological hurdle as these phones are integrate with components such as MEMS sensors, dual cameras, GPS, and accelerometer.

All such elements make them very suitable for the use of augmented reality platforms. This factor is also expected to drive the overall growth of the global augmented reality and virtual reality market.
