Virtual Reality in Healthcare Market to Grow At a CAGR of 25%

Virtual reality is a three-dimensional computer generated image or environment. The VR market is expected to grow at a phenomenal CAGR of 25% during the forecast period of 2021 to 2029. Virtual reality systems consist of helmet or a head mounted display (HMD), gloves, sensors and a virtual reality engine. Virtual reality is the complete simulation of real world scenario virtually by using various semi and fully immersive technologies. It is rapidly gaining popularity in the healthcare segment. Healthcare professionals are using the virtual reality in surgery simulation, depression and phobia treatment, training and development programs, robotic surgeries and other segments. Virtual reality uses human simulation software which creates a virtual interactive environment for the doctors and nurses.

The virtual technology has the potential to enhance the market scope in medical applications such as 3D surgery and phobia therapies. The increase in fatal diseases such as CVD, CHD and Cancer gave rise to the adoption of modern robotic surgeries. However, the robotic surgeries need great precaution and practice. VR technology provides platform for the surgeons to perform complex surgeries on virtual patient. The adoption of VR technology in healthcare to train surgeons is expected to increase. CVD remains the prime cause of death across the world according to WHO.

A truly immersive experience make the user to become unaware of his real surroundings, In order to achieve the true immersion, researchers have developed innovative input methods that are more natural to user. Fully immersive systems are dominating the market. This combination of sense of immersion and interactivity is called as telepresence. 3D technology is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. There are various applications of 3D like cinema, television, automobile, construction and healthcare.
