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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
