Given the wide-reaching effects of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on AR & VR in Healthcare Market, companies are on the lookout for new opportunities to sustain in the coming years. Gain new insights into the market and alternative solutions for keeping production steady in unforeseen circumstances.

AR & VR in Healthcare Market Overview

Augmented reality (AR) enhances value to the real world through the display of real-time digital information and media. Alternatively, virtual reality (VR) is a technology that enables the immersion of the simulated environment. Upon use of AR and VR, experts from diverse locations can join a surgical procedure virtually. Virtual Interactive Presence and Augmented Reality System were set up at a hospital in the US, and its counterpart was set up in Vietnam to provide intraoperative assistance, in 2016.

The global AR & VR in the healthcare market size is estimated to register a whopping 30.2% CAGR during the forecast period. One of the factors contributing to the ascension recorded in the global AR & VR in healthcare market includes the increasing government funding. For instance, the Digital Health Technology Catalyst (DHTC) program granted USD 582,033, in October 2018, for collaboration between the University of Chester and Countless Hospital to work on a VR project to aid stroke patient practice.
