regional assessment

On the basis of regional segmentation, the AR & VR healthcare market has been segmented into Europe, the Americas, the Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific.

Due to the growing need for healthcare cost reduction, the US market is expected to dominate AR & VR in healthcare by producing larger market share during the forecast period. Using AR navigation, minimally invasive surgery in the United States saves up to $288 million. Due to significant technology breakthroughs and increased research funding, European AR and VR in the healthcare market also occupied the second largest position in producing market revenue in 2017. North America led the healthcare augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) markets, and generated the largest share of the proceeds.

In addition, outsourcing of healthcare IT services is growing in North America as a result of increased demand from healthcare payers and providers to reduce treatment costs. This has positively affected the demand for augmented reality and virtual reality in the field of medicine. However, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the largest increase during the forecast period due to increased public awareness and improved healthcare infrastructure. Developing countries such as India, China, Brazil and Mexico offer promising opportunities for outsourcing services related to the development and distribution of AR and VR technologies in healthcare. Most likely, Europe will dominate the market. Health care ranks second in terms of increasing investments and financial resources. The European Union is dedicated to developing technologies that will enable the development of effective healthcare systems.
