About Augmented Reality Market for Gaming

AR technology blends digital content with the physical world. It allows users to scan the physical environment and provides an enhanced or augmented experience by adding virtual computer-generated information. End-users can make use of this technology through apps developed for mobile devices.

Gaming is an important consumer segment that AR can revolutionize. Most mobile games are preloaded with the developer versions of terrains, levels, and characters. AR gives gamers the opportunity to create their own racing terrains, characters, and targets. For instance, individuals waiting in a metro station can scan their surroundings to create their version of the Subway Surfers game. The user could be the character running on tracks or jumping over trains. Similarly, an office space could be converted into a skating rink, and the gamer could be the character skating around the office. Racing games can also become a whole new experience. Players can scan their local surroundings to create a virtual track and invite neighbors and friends to race.

Technavios analysts forecast the global AR market for gaming to grow at a CAGR of 174.2% during the period 2016-2020.
