China AR/VR Ecosystem Overview_Value Chain Analysis

Apr 21, 2023 | Author : Flora Tang


The AR/VR hype in China has gone through two waves of growth, despite the relatively small market size at present. The market and investment hype in China have waned and returned to a more rational level since the beginning of 2023. This can be attributed to the dismal profitability of internet giants under macroeconomic pressures and the underwhelming sales performance of VR devices. Nonetheless, China's national government has recognized the long-term potential of XR technologies, with the XR industry prioritized as one of the top seven key industries to constitute the digital economy of China in the country's 14th Five-Year Plan. Recently, CAICT (China Academy of Information and Communications Technology) has also introduced Action plans to foster the integration of virtual reality technologies (including augmented reality and mixed reality technologies) and vertical applications from 2022 to 2026.
