The following is part of our Virtual Reality Intelligence Service, which includes forecasts, data, and key insights about the virtual and augmented reality technology market.


The number of virtual and augmented reality-related (“xR”) companies exhibiting at CES 2019 grew compared to CES 2018. However, the number of spherical camera manufacturers and their suppliers participating in the mega trade show shrank. Notably, manufacturers Ricoh and Yi Technologies did not exhibit.

Greenlight Insights xR market analysts Alexis Mackin and Natalie Yue were in attendance to capture all the insights, presented in the attached special report.
