New Omdia research highlights near-eye display market poised for growth as leading brands revive sales efforts

LONDON, July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — New research from Omdia indicates that although the XR market which includes AR, VR, and MR, is currently experiencing a slump, leading brands are making concerted efforts to boost sales.


Near-eye display market unit forecast, 2022-30

The sluggish performance in the XR market has led to significant layoffs at top companies, and several smartphone brands have either halted or scaled back their XR ventures. Despite these challenges, industry leaders remain committed to revitalizing the market and driving growth in the coming years.

On the hardware front, Meta and PICO are set to launch the Quest 3S and PICO 4S in 2H24, both at lower prices than their predecessors to boost sales.

On the software side, Sony’s PlayStation VR2 (PS VR2) will now support PC VR games expanding beyond its previous PS5 exclusivity, which is expected to drive up PS VR2 sales. Additionally, Meta Platforms has announced the initial release of its XR operating systems  to third-party OEMs, including ASUS, Lenovo, and Microsoft Xbox. Meta will also focus on enhancing the quality and quantity of its platform and application software, to improve hardware terminal sales.

While near-eye display shipments are projected to stay flat in 2024, the long-term forecast remains positive.

In 2024, the XR market is primarily focused on the Apple Vision Pro. However, its high price is expected to limit its sales, preventing it from significantly boosting overall market growth. Omdia predicts that total XR sets shipments in 2024 will remain steady compared to 2023 with near-eye display shipments also flat at 17.2 million units. Nevertheless, the Vision Pro has significantly increased the share of OLED on silicon (OLEDoS) displays.

Commenting on the market’s fluctuations, Omdia Senior Research Analyst Kimi Lin stated, "We anticipate the XR industry will remain stagnant for the next one to two years. While set shipments will see slight fluctuations, near-eye display shipments are expected to increase more significantly due to the inevitable shift from single to dual displays.

"With ongoing advancements in display, optical, and other component technologies, Omdia is optimistic about the long-term outlook. Near-eye display shipments are projected to grow rapidly from 2027 reaching 92.9 million units by 2030."

Senior professionals from the global display industry are set to convene at the prestigious Omdia Display Conference from September 12-13, 2024, in Shanghai, China. Kimi Lin along with a team of Omdia analysts will share Omdia’s research highlighting the latest innovations from the display sector. Secure your place here.
