tim merelcontributortim merel is managing director of digi-capital. more posts by this contributor: ar (mobile ar, smartglasses) could approach three and a half billion installed base and $85 billion to $90 billion revenue within five years. at the same time, vr (mobile, standalone, console, pc) might deliver 50 million to 60 million installed base and $10 billion to $15 billion. that’s a pretty big difference, and it all has to do with ar’s ubiquity and vr’s focus. (note: digi-capital’s base case is that even with 900 million installed base for arkit/arcore by the end of this year, ar/vr revenue won’t begin to scale until 2019).to understand why the sister markets are shaping up so differently, we’re going to dig in to ar’s and vr’s installed bases, use cases, app store category revenues
