Europe was the largest VR gaming market in 2019, and the region will offer several growth opportunities to market vendors during the forecast period. The rising awareness of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality is most likely to drive the demand for head-mounted displays (HMDs) in this region. Additionally, the growth of the gaming market in the region due to the increased penetration of smartphones will significantly drive VR gaming market growth in this region over the forecast period.

35% of the market’s growth will originate from Europe during the forecast period. The UK and Germany are the key markets for VR gaming in Europe. Market growth in this region will be slower than the growth of the market in APAC.

VR Gaming Market: Key Drivers and Trends

One of the major factors driving market growth is the enhanced consumer experience provided by VR technology. Virtual reality technology is safe to use and provides a life-like experience for users at any location. This is increasing the demand for virtual reality from consumers and is inducing companies to incorporate the technology into both their hardware and software segments by collaborating with key vendors. Additionally, since the technology allows students and trainees to learn practically in a virtual world, it also finds significance in military and aviation training and is also being adopted by medical institutions as well.

The rising popularity of 360-degree videos, one of the key VR gaming market trends, will also drive market growth. It has been observed that the VR content market is one of the evolving platforms of the gaming world. 360-degree videos are made utilizing enhanced camera systems with the capability to record the whole 360-degree angle sets at once. This enables viewers to watch videos at any angle with options to pan and rotate the videos as well. As far as the gaming experience is concerned, gamers can shift the viewing angles with a VR headset providing an immersive environment, this, in turn, drives global VR gaming market growth.
