High Cost of Implementation of Virtual Try-on to Curb Market Growth
Virtual reality technology has been popular among retailers for over a decade. Retailers, such as ASOS, Macy’s, and Adidas, are implementing virtual fitting rooms on e-commerce platforms as well as in their stores. However, virtual dressing rooms would be an expensive investment for smaller companies.
There are various factors due to which virtual dressing room solutions are expensive, such as incorporating/applying augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality technology, creating 3D assets, purchasing hardware such as smart mirrors, and training staff on how to use the software. Further, without relevant experience working with AI, VR, and AR, the retailer might find it challenging to integrate the technology seamlessly. These factors are expected to hamper the market growth.
Growing Adoption of App-based Body Scanners to Drive Service Demand
Based on type, the market is divided into in-store virtual mirrors, app-based body scanners, and sizing surveys backed by 3D body data.
App-based body scanner holds the largest revenue share and it is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

For instance, H&M has developed a body scanner through which H&M customers can create their own virtual avatar and it can be transferred to the AvatarCloud app to try-on correct clothing sizes virtually. Further, it provides a photorealistic try-on experience to each customer by generating an exclusive 3D avatar from a quick scan on a customer’s mobile device.
The in-store virtual mirror segment is anticipated to grow at a prominent CAGR during the forecast period, as global fashion brands, such as Ralph Lauren, Neiman Marcus, and Mango, allow shoppers to try-on products through their in-store virtual mirrors. According to a well-established brand Ralph Lauren, its virtual mirrors have 90% interaction rate. This huge amount of data from its online fitting room software helps to enhance its retail strategy and improve business performance. These factors are likely to drive market growth.
