Growth of e-commerce is a significant factor influencing growth of the market.

The global augmented reality in retail market is forecast to reach a market size of USD 18.05 Billion by 2027, and register a significantly high CAGR over the next seven years, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Growing demand for augmented reality in retail can be attributed to increasing growth of the e-Commerce industry. The e-Commerce industry is witnessing rapid growth owing to high Internet speed, increasing smartphone penetration, easy accessibility to such platforms, convenience for customers to shop from any place and at any time, and others. Augmented reality enables e-Commerce customers to virtually experience the products while shopping, which helps to build brand engagement. For instance, “See It In Your Space” and “Try Before You Buy” augmented reality are quite popular with e-Commerce customers. The fashion and beauty industry provides customers “Try Before You Buy” augmented reality features, thereby enabling them to experience the look of the product on themselves before making a purchase.

Growing demand for personalized retail products is garnering significant traction in the retail industry, and augmented reality plays an essential role in bridging any gaps related to changing preferences. Providing a custom-made product takes a considerable amount of time and the final output depends on a customer’s specific requirement or perception. Augmented reality in retail assists in eliminating such issues by enabling generation of virtual versions of the product to be personalized. For instance, Nike’s Makers’ Experience merges object tracking, augmented reality, and projection technology (deploying Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence), along with digital signage to allow a custom-made design to overlay on sneakers.

The COVID-19 impact:
Augmented reality in retail witnessed rapid demand owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. With consumers being confined to home quarantine and abiding by social distancing norms due to the global lockdown, product demand and online purchases through e-commerce had seen an exponential rise. This in turn served to boost demand for augmented reality among online retail stores to provide a better customer experience. Also, owing to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic, retailers are using augmented reality by enabling easy in-store navigation and helping customers to stay for a limited amount of time at stores in order to limit interaction with other shoppers and store personnel.

Key market participants include Microsoft Corporation, Blippar, PTC, Wikitude GmbH, ViewAR GmbH, Apple Inc., Augment, Zugara Inc., Google, and Marxent Labs.
