Augmented reality (AR) has emerged as a promising technology in the healthcare sector owing to its ability to enhance the quality of images. The technology overlays the present environment with images to provide clinicians and doctors with information to reach diagnosis decisions rapidly. This is exemplified by the use of HoloLens, an AR supporting headset by Microsoft Corporation, to view images of organs at the surface or sub-surface levels in three dimensions.
Augmented Reality in Healthcare Market Overview
The augmented reality in healthcare market is predicted to reach a valuation nearing USD 1.23 billion by 2023, as per the latest market report by Market Research Future (MRFR). It can touch this mark at a CAGR of nearly 23% CAGR from 2017 to 2023 (forecast period) owing to a plethora of opportunities ranging from surgical preparation to surgery and rehabilitation. Applications in medical training, patient education, and pharmacy benefit management can entice companies to invest in the market during the forecast period.
The capability of AR in simultaneously displaying information related to patients during surgeries which can include medical history, as well as recent images taken of the patient, can bode well for the market. Development of healthcare IT infrastructure as well as supportive policies can induce demand for AI across hospital chains. This is facilitated by the penetration of portable and handheld devices which support AR.
