VR/AR: Hype or serious business?
In 2016 the Brabant Development Agency published the research report “VR / AR: Hype or serious business?". For the first time forecasts where combined with actual market numbers. They concluded that virtual and augmented reality (VR / AR) developers work especially commissioned by companies and focus too little on building software platforms. Therefore, they miss international growth opportunities. In 2017 they repeated their research and will publish one of the first reports with actual trendlines of market developments in AR/VR industry in Europe in the period 2016-2017 combined with forecasts. This presentation will answer the question is VR/AR a hype or serious business?
