The global volumetric video market size is estimated at USD 2,377.4 million in 2023, and it is expected to increase to USD 13,939.6 million by 2030, advancing at a CAGR of 28.8% during 2024–2030. This can be ascribed to the rising pace of technological development, growing number of volumetric capture studios across the globe, increasing frequency of product launches, surging usage of AR/VR products, mounting demand for 3D and 360-degree content in the entertainment industry, and surging spending on the advancement of sports technologies.
Furthermore, the introduction of 5G brings the benefits of a high bandwidth and speed and low latency, enabling the unified delivery of such video content. With this, the growing application of this technology in gaming, holograms, brand experiences, metaverse, and training contributes to the market advance.
The services category will witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, with a CAGR of 30.0%. This can be ascribed to the increasing number of vendors providing streaming, sharing, and cloud services, growing consumer preference for advanced technologies for creating 3D video content, and burgeoning video production industry.
The hardware category contributes significant revenue to the market as well, as volumetric video creation involves an extensive number of sensors, motion detectors, cameras, and other devices. Additionally, the growing number of video capture studios and increasing product availability aid in the progress of the market in this category.
The software category will also witness substantial growth in the coming years, because several technology companies are providing users with convenient solutions. In addition, this software integrates with augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR) platforms, which enhances users’ experience. Moreover, the wide usage of such software to capture volumetric video by integrating data from depth sensors, multiple cameras, and other devices, to create 3D representation of the subject, drives the market.
Volumetric videos are widely used for marketing products, as advertisements made with this technology are more attention-grabbing. Nowadays, consumers do not interact with traditional forms of advertising, such as out of home (OOH) advertisements or social media marketing, in the same way as with volumetric video. Holding the attention of customers has become a challenge for brands. For this, volumetric video offers a visually striking medium that can captivate consumers, making them more likely to engage with the advertised product.
For example, in July 2020, Samsung Electronics launched a limited-edition smartphone, named Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G BTS, under collaboration with another South Korean band BTS. The company created a series of BTS AR emojis enabled with the volumetric capture technology to develop 3D representations of band players. Those emojis are naturally realistic as well as more expressive than traditional 2D emojis and, therefore, grab the attention of fans more quickly.
Volumetric video has a big effect on the advertising sector as it offers an extremely interactive and immersive experience, which attracts bored and uninterested customers as well. Viewers feel involved and excited as they move around and interact with the 3D representation, something that traditional advertising forms could never achieve. This heightened engagement aims to make an unforgettable impression of the brand or product being advertised, and thus, viewers take action. Hence, volumetric video could become an important tool for any brand that wants to improve engagement and build a stronger relationship with its audience.
The medical category accounts for a significant revenue share in 2023 due to the burgeoning application of this technology to see clear images of internal organs with a 360-degree view, by creating holograms. In this regard, the high R&D spending by public and private firms to develop enhanced diagnostic imaging technologies for better patient outcomes propels the market. This technology is also widely used in medical institutions for the training of students. Therefore, the growing number of clinics, medical centers, and multispecialty hospitals across the globe and the rising count of surgeries contribute to the category’s growth.
Furthermore, the signage & advertisement category will register significant growth in the coming years. This can be attributed to the burgeoning signage & advertisement industry because of the growing popularity of retail e-commerce platforms, which thrive on effective advertisements; and evolving marketing strategies of retailers and major brands across the globe. This technology is widely used in signage and advertising to develop engaging, creative, and more-attractive advertisements that people prefer to watch.
