The factors that fuel the penetration of head mounted display in consumer market is result of declining prices of components like microsdisplays in global market. Microdisplay is a basic component which is coupled with display optic system embedded in both helmet mounted displays and eye wear displays for providing enlarged, high quality image in front of wearer’s eye. Use of HMDs for virtual augmented reality, Video gaming & entertainment, R&D and Healthcare provides a sound opportunity for the growth of HMD market.
At Present North America is dominating global HMD market in 2014, which is characterized by technological advancements bought by increasing demand for wearable computing devices in this region. The HMD market of Asia Pacific totaled at USD 79.8 million in 2014, and is expected to be the fastest growing market within the forecast period. Increasing demand from consumer market and medical services is flourishing growth for this region.
Video gaming & entertainment market is projected to show the fastest growth within the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. Technological advancements in display like high resolution and 3D video display with superior augmented video capabilities are primarily responsible for the expected increase in demand for these devices. The defense, aviation and military sectordominated the HMD market in 2014 owing to the increasing adaption of HMD enabled devices for the purpose of simulation, training, security, monitoring and tracking not only be developed countries but also by developing countries like India, China and Brazil. In terms of type of product, helmet mounted displays dominated the total HMD market in 2014. However, increasing user preference for light weight head-worn display devices will tend to exceed the growth rate of eye wear display market as compared to helmet mounted displays within forecast period.
