VR is not dying, insists manufacturer of VR headset
VR is fascinating tech and continues to evolve. But it’s also hit a wall for consumer adoption, leading to pretty disappointing sales.
Maybe this is what led HTC to publish this blog post yesterday, entitled “Think VR is dying? It’s just getting started.” The post argues that current dire analyst forecasts for VR should be disregarded, and that reports on plummeting Vive sales are due to the company running short of supply on original headsets. The post also points to a recent IDC report from Q1 2018 that shows HTC Vive leading VR companies in overall revenue market share, and that Vive leads China’s VR market (for standalone VR hardware, of which there are few players).
