Drivers and Restraints

Stakeholders expect the metaverse market share to gain traction from the rising footprint of VR devices across developed and developing economies. The trend for mixed reality, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and blockchain across the end-use applications will be pronounced over the next few years.

Moreover, a notable uptick in the e-commerce industry will encourage leading companies to inject funds into the landscape. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) report, the global e-commerce sale reached USD 26.7 trillion in 2020.
While the adoption of state-of-the-art technologies will bode well, lack of awareness, security concerns, and rigorous government rules are likely to mar the industry outlook.
