Growth In VR And AR Technology

By 2021, Cisco has predicted that 5.4 billion people would play a significant role in the growth of mobile video. The tech company also noted that the increase in mobile video usage is due to the growing popularity of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), as per Android Headlines. The last year's record was around 18 million for people who used the VR headset. In 2021, 100 million of users are expected to use VR and AR, thereby channeling the said growth in mobile video usage.

It will post an annual growth rate of 4.1 percent in the Middle East and Africa and 3.2 percent increase in Asia Pacific.
