Gaming enthusiasts prefer 3D TVs as it provides 3D visual effects and real-time gaming experience over ordinary TVs. The vendors in the gaming industry are increasingly preferring 3D multidimensional gameplay due to the increasing affordability of 3D display technologies with advanced gaming software. Additionally, the rise in disposable income and the demand for realistic visuals and real-time gaming experience also contributes to the growth of this market. According to our industry research analysts, the 3D glasses market size will grow steadily and post a revenue of more than USD 11 billion by 2021.

Influenced by the growing buying power of the consumers in the emerging nations and the growing awareness, there is an increasing demand for 3D TVs around the globe. The growth in popularity of smart devices, the availability of technologically advanced computing devices, and the rising penetration of the Internet in various emerging regions have resulted in easy access to TV channels and Internet services such as on-demand content and catch-up services. This influences the consumer demand for 3D viewing and the demand for 3D glasses. The growing consumer interest in 3D viewing in emerging nations is identified as one of the key trends behind the growth of the 3D glasses market.

Competitive landscape and the 3D glasses industry key players

The 3D glasses market is highly fragmented due to the presence of several key players offering multiple solutions to the customers. The market is intensely competitive due to the lack of product differentiation that results in the vendors trying to offer innovative and differentiated solutions to the customers. Several players are attempting to offer multiple solutions such as a single pair of 3D glasses for multiple screens due to the lack of standard 3D glasses.
