The increase in popularity of VR headsets can be attributed to the increase in development of consumer VR content, improved wearability of headsets and falling costs. Other factors affecting VR adoption on a market by market basis are: the speed of recovery from COVID-19, existing affinity for Western content, and the extent of 5G rollouts.

There is currently a lack of reliable forecasts for VR headset users in key Asian countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, despite these countries experiencing unprecedented growth in the digital content sectors (including VR), especially during Covid-19.

 

As leading experts in digital content sectors in Asia, PCA has developed proprietary forecasts to provide its clients with guidance on how the VR market will develop over the next 3 years.

Report Highlights:

  • Singapore is expected to have the highest VR headset user penetration, followed by Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.

  • Covid-19 has also led to an increase in adoption of alternative forms of digital entertainment, especially VR. During the pandemic lockdown, face-to-face social interactions were kept to the minimum, hence consumers turned to VR to simulate social interactions and pass time.
