AR will support process improvement in healthcare


Artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics are ‘must-have’ technologies for healthcare companies. While augmented reality (AR) is not expected to be a key priority, it will provide value to companies who invest in it astutely. Rather than enable entirely new processes, companies should look to AR to improve existing processes.

Broadly, AR is useful in processes that are limited by poor information flow - that is, when there is too much information or communicating information is practically or intellectually difficult. AR can remove this barrier by delivering the information more intuitively and comprehensibly in these processes. AR has uses in healthcare professional training, R&D, manufacturing, and sales and marketing.

Lack of use cases is preventing widespread use of AR


In general, AR adoption in the healthcare industry, which includes pharmaceutical companies, medical devices companies, and healthcare providers, has been inhibited by a lack of both understanding and use cases. Compared to AR, these sectors are more familiar with the applications of virtual reality (VR). AR has the most promise and use cases in supporting healthcare providers, particularly in surgical assistance and professional training. For pharma and medical devices, AR has been mainly used in niche applications within manufacturing and sales and marketing.

That said, professionals are more familiar with and open to the technology after the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to use new technologies, including AR, to ensure business continuity.

AR will generate $152 billion in revenue by 2030


Worth nearly $7 billion in 2020, the global AR market will reach $152 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36% over the 10-year periodaccording to the publisher.
