by Neil Mawston | Nov 11, 2021

New research from our Wearables tracker (here) forecasts the global untethered VR headset market to be worth US$6 billion by 2026.

By segment, we find smartphone-based VR is declining sharply, as standalone takes an increasing share of the untethered VR pie. The market is evolving toward devices that offer higher-quality experiences for the emerging metaverse.

Brand leaders include Oculus, HTC, Sony, and others from China and elsewhere. Will Apple soon join the industry?

Our report sizes the untethered VR headset market -- smartphone-based headsets plus standalone headsets -- by shipments, revenues, and installed base thru 2026.
