The company shares new data on RX status, including estimated Quest sales and expected revenue through 2021 for the entire ecosystem.
Next year will be a turning point for extended reality, with the potential to be the year of virtual reality, he says SuperData, who believe that the new autonomous viewer Quest oculus will sell more than 1 million units in 2019, surpassing by a value of 3 in its first 12 months the sales that Rift achieved in its first year of release.
Number of Rift and Quest shipments (in units of thousands) after launch.
A total of 435,000 shipments is the estimated value per Superdata for the first three months, an amount that is also three times that shown for Rift in the same period.
“Oculus Quest has the potential to bring VR to the masses. While devices like Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR focus more on passive media consumption, Oculus Quest is designed to appeal to those who want to experience VR games,” they note.
Sales of Quest and Go (estimated 1.8 million for this year) will collectively reach about 2.5 million units in 2019.
Expected revenue until 2021 (hardware is represented with lighter colors).
Superdata also shares that VR arcades will double their revenue over the next three years, adding up to $ 854 million. In turn, they predict that augmented reality by 2021 will be for the first time ahead of VR software in terms of revenue. For this year they estimate that AR with mobile will generate 2,000 million.
