An Overview of Augmented and Virtual Reality Germany

The ongoing inflation is forcing consumers to cut back on non-essential spending, such as technology. As financial confidence returns, however, Early Adopters especially, will continue to adopt immersive technology.

Moreover, Mintel’s report on technology trends in Germany show that gaming is becoming more popular across demographics as a legacy of the pandemic, which will lead to growth in the VR headset segment.

Virtual and Augmented Reality Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Inflation & VR and AR in Germany: Despite the need to cut back on non-essential spending, 82% of those who have used or are interested in using VR headsets show interest in buying them. However, only a fraction of them would pay more than €550 for a VR headset. A lack of usefulness is the number one barrier to VR headset usage, underlining the need for brands to promote how VR can add value to consumers’ lives.
  • Consumers & Virtual Reality Germany: In the past 12 months, 29% of consumers in Germany have used AR technologies, with considerable interest among non-users. While games lead among AR technologies used, interest extends beyond gaming use cases. For example, brands have opportunities to use AR to resonate with consumers through apps to visualise furniture.
  • VR and AR Trends Germany: There are opportunities to capitalise on VR movies with immersive cinema-like entertainment, as half of the 39% of German consumers who have used or would be interested in using a VR headset are interested in using it for watching films or series.

VR and AR Market Forecast for Germany

  • Moreover, the wide availability of 5G will allow for a wider penetration of VR and AR in Germany because 5G networks enable low-latency transmissions required by immersive experiences.
