Volograms’ technology enables users to capture volumetric holograms of real people. By inserting holograms into videos, people can create their own immersive Augmented Reality (“AR”) and Virtual Reality (“VR”) content for use in apps, social media and VR headsets. The mobile AR market is forecast to grow from the one billion compatible devices and over US$8 billion in revenue in 2019 to 2.5 billion compatible devices and US$60 billion in revenue by 2024. The growth potential for Volograms is therefore significant and could attract success similar to other innovative products designed for mobile applications such as Pokémon Go.
With the mobile AR market forecast for considerable growth in the coming years, we believe that Volograms is opening a new market category for AR photos and video. Already a market leader in volumetric videos and with a well-recognised customer base, we also believe that Volograms’ technology will usher in the rapid expansion of the mobile AR industry.
