Opportunities for Augmented Reality: 2013-2022 Report Featuring 30 Vendors to Watch in the AR Space

DUBLIN, Ireland, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Opportunities for Augmented Reality: 2013-2022" report to their offering.

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )

This new report provides a comprehensive and granular ten-year forecast for revenue generation - from hardware, software and advertising services -- in the burgeoning Augmented Reality (AR) market. It also assesses the latest business models being put forward by leading edge AR firms and analyses existing AR applications to understand their success and their flaws.

In addition to forecasts and market analysis, this report contains strategic profiles of twenty-eight leading AR firms, with SmarTech's take on where they are headed and their likelihood for future success.

Giants such Apple, Google, HP and Microsoft see AR as both a way to boost their traditional businesses and as a gateway into new markets. At the same time, innovative AR start-ups are attracting funding for both platforms and AR-driven applications aimed at specific industry sectors such as retail, education or computer gaming. But AR opportunities are not in any way limited to software packages; AR will also drive demand for new types of hardware such as gesture control and especially head mounted displays.

Given the strong and immediate opportunity potential for AR, STM Publishing has created this report as a key strategic input for all senior executives planning AR product/market policies for their firms. This report will also be essential reading for investors who are looking to take equity positions in AR firms.

By reading this report, software firms will gain insight from our assessments of the past successes and failures of AR firms as well as our projections of how these companies will seek to evolve their business models over the next few years. Our roadmaps for the major AR platforms will also serve as an important input for product planning at all firms involved in the industry.

R&D organizations developing novel sensors, input technology and other component level products will be able to quantify the addressable markets for their AR-related technology and how these markets will develop over the next decade. Advertising agencies and retailers will be able to quantify the advertising potential of AR promotional activity and see what has worked in the AR advertising space to date. Investors will gain a better understanding of how AR ventures are being financed and what the expected returns are likely to be.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships.
