December 05, 2019 | Information & Technology

The global virtual reality in manufacturing industry is projected to reach USD 14,887.0 million by 2026. According to a report published by Fortune Business Insights, titled “Virtual Reality in Manufacturing Industry Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Component (Hardware, Software, Content), By Application (Product Design and Development, Safety and Training, Maintenance and Repair, and Communication & Collaboration), and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026,” the market was worth USD 924.7 million in 2018 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 39.2% during the forecast period, 2019-2026.

Manufacturing is a sensitive aspect of businesses that allows almost zero or minimum room for error. The use of human labour tends to produce at least a small amount of error. In such circumstances, there is the need for automated machines and technologies, that are not affected by any external factors. The use of virtual reality in manufacturing has been a fruitful one in several aspects. It not only helps minimize the errors, but can help perform tasks in shorter time and eliminate the use of manual labour for repetitive tasks. The properties of virtual reality have allowed enhanced operations in the manufacturing process of any industry. The trends of automation have further led to an increased demand for the concept across the world. Recent advances in virtual reality concepts have had a direct impact on the growth of the market. The increasing investment in the efforts taken to maximize the use of VR in manufacturing will aid the growth of the market in the forthcoming years.
