VR (Virtual Reality) sickness has been a major factor affecting the wide-scale adoption of VR HMD (Head Mounted Display) among users. So far, there has been a lot of conjecture about the causes of VR sickness and verification has been made. Among various solutions, the adoption of VR-ready TFT-LCD (Thin Film Transistor-Liquid Crystal Display) panels has been proven effective for resolving VR sickness. However, only some vendors are capable of providing such panels. The scarcity in supply has caught market attention. This report analyzes the latest development of VR-ready panels and examines their opportunities.

Primary research with a holistic, cross-domain approach

The exhaustive primary research methods are central to the value that the analyst delivers. A combination of questionnaires and on-site visits to the major manufacturers provides a first view of the latest data and trends. Information is subsequently validated by interviews with the manufacturers' suppliers and customers, covering a holistic industry value chain. This process is backed up by a cross-domain team-based approach, creating an interlaced network across numerous interrelated components and system-level devices to ensure statistical integrity and provide in-depth insight.

Complementing primary research is a running database and secondary research of industry and market information. Dedicated research into the macro-environmental trends shaping the ICT industry also allows the analyst to forecast future development trends and generate foresight perspectives. With more than 20 years of experience and endeavors in research, the methods and methodologies include:


  • Component supplier interviews
  • System supplier interviews
  • User interviews
  • Channel interviews
  • IPO interviews
  • Focus groups
  • Consumer surveys
  • Production databases
  • Financial data
  • Custom databases


  • Technology forecasting and assessment
  • Product assessment and selection
  • Product life cycles
  • Added value analysis
  • Market trends
  • Scenario analysis
  • Competitor analysis
