Executive Summary

Smart glasses are head-worn wearable computing devices that contain processing units, multiple sensors, and optical head-mounted displays (OHMDs). Smart glasses display augmented information onto the physical world. The applications of smart glasses offer great potential to achieve real-time and enriched interaction between the user of smart glasses and the physical world with augmented information. Users of smart glasses can provide inputs through various actions such as head movement, hand gestures, voice input, and others.

The growth of the global smart glasses is largely driven by factors such as technological advancements in smart glasses, the increasing trend of ‘Bring Your Own Wearables’ in enterprises, the development of AR apps, and improvement in productivity and efficiency through the usage of smart glasses. The growth of the smart glasses market for AR technologies is being restrained by factors such as high cost, bulky design, and privacy concerns raised by users and surrounding people (people who are in the vicinity of the smart glasses user).

The Global Smart Glasses Market for AR Technologies has been segmented based on form factor, operating system, end user, application, and geography. Based on form factor, the market has been classified into monocular smart glasses and binocular smart glasses. Based on operating systems, smart glasses are classified under Android, Windows, and others. Based on end users, the market has been segmented into the consumer segment and the enterprise segment. Based on application, smart glasses have been further segmented into manufacturing, healthcare, military & defense, warehouse, construction & architecture, and others. Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
