The share of the Samsung Gear VR had more than 70% of the sales of VR headsets in the past year
Super Data analysts have estimated the market for mobile (and not only) games and some related areas at the end of 2016.
We are in particular interested in the data not about the games. For example, the source reports that last year in the world was sold 6.3 million VR headsets. The evaluation takes into account all versions of such devices.
It is interesting that the lion’s share came on sales of Samsung Gear VR headsets. Such devices for the year totalled 4.5 million Given the relatively low cost of such devices and the brand power of Samsung, the result is to be expected. Total revenue in the market VR headsets amounted to $ 1.8 billion.
If we talk about the full sets, then the leader is Sony’s PlayStation VR. More low, in comparison with competitors, the cost of the headset, and no need to upgrade PC if the console has done its job. In the end Sony sold 750 000 set, although they appeared at the end of the year. For comparison, helmets Oculus for the full year has sold 240 000 units, and headsets HTC Vive — 420 000. Also many were sold devices Google Daydream VR — 260 000 units.
