Global Mixed Reality in Healthcare Market Size (2021 to 2026)

The global mixed reality in healthcare market is one of the fastest-growing markets in the healthcare industry. From 2021 to 2026, the global mixed reality in healthcare market is forecasted to witness a remarkable CAGR of 46.8% and worth USD 2.6 billion by 2026.

Combining real and virtual worlds to create new habitats and representations in which physical and digital items co-exist and interact in real-time is known as mixed reality (MR). Mixed reality is a combination of reality and virtual reality that does not occur solely in either the physical or virtual worlds. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are two examples of mixed reality used in the gaming and film industries. Mixed reality is helping healthcare service providers organize, evaluate, and control healthcare processes more conveniently and effectively, building on the uses of virtual and augmented reality in healthcare. In recent years, physicians have begun to investigate the possible uses of immersive technology in healthcare. For example, researchers from the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom discussed practical applications in medical education and training and preprocedural planning and visualization during surgery at a Coffee and Talk event at ECR 2019. Medical operations may be made considerably easier for healthcare professionals while also being safer for patients via mixed reality.


The rising utilization of mixed reality in the healthcare industry drives market growth.

The market for mixed reality in healthcare is being driven by an increase in mixed reality in healthcare. The healthcare business has been quickly developing in recent years. Many healthcare practitioners are adopting mixed reality because it has a bright future. Surgeons can now do operations on patients thousands of kilometers distant using Mixed Reality. It allows nurses to practice their abilities and execute hundreds of surgeries without ever touching a patient. Mixed reality offers a significantly more practical way to see images and data than charts or displays for doctors. Furthermore, by projecting information into medical records or even directly on the patient, mixed reality might enable new methods to connect with patients. Mixed reality is also becoming more popular to deliver pertinent medical information in real-time and give hospital-level treatment to patients at home. Even in medical education, mixed reality is becoming more popular. Mixed reality interactive medical training allows students to execute practice procedures without putting their lives in danger physically. As a result, the mixed reality in the healthcare market is increasing.

Increasing research activities and mixed reality usage for the medical condition also drives the mixed reality in the healthcare market.

The mixed reality in the healthcare market is also being driven by rising research efforts and studies indicating the utility of mixed reality in specific medical problems. Many studies are now underway or finished that suggest that mixed reality may be used to solve problems with various circumstances that have yet to be resolved. Some of the medical diseases in which research is being conducted include post-traumatic stress disorder, congenital heart disease, pain management, and mental health. For example, mixed reality utilizing HoloLens® has aided surgeons in comprehending the complicated geometries of congenital heart disease. Similarly, Virtual reality (VR) has also been demonstrated to be useful in relieving acute and chronic pain in both adults and children in prior research. In addition, clinical studies conducted by Daniel Freeman, professor of clinical psychology and NIHR Research Professor at the University of Oxford, found that most subjects found virtual reality to be a pleasurable and positive experience that provided a distraction from their anxiety and distress in 2019. As a result, many research investigations are underway in this area, which would assist in developing the mixed reality industry in healthcare.


Lack of expertise and high cost of equipment hampers the mixed reality in the healthcare market.

However, the mixed reality in the healthcare sector is hampered by a shortage of expertise and a high cost of technology. Mixed reality is a new technology that is still in its development. As a result, the benefits and flaws are uncertain, and medical practitioners are not qualified to use this technology. In addition, the cost of mixed reality technology is out of reach for certain hospitals, tiny and medium-sized ones. Microsoft's HOLOLENS 2 mixed reality headsets, for example, costs $3,500. As a result, mixed reality is still trailing behind in terms of acceptance.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global mixed reality in healthcare market:

Millions of individuals were affected by the covid – 19 and businesses all over the world were affected. Early-stage technologies like mixed reality, virtual reality, and augmented reality have had some ups and downs during the epidemic. However, the use of virtual reality technology to simulate human behavior, infection transmission, and pathogen structure to boost skill management and safety protection is increasing. During this pandemic, the use of virtual reality (VR) for telemedicine, communications, and drug development has risen significantly. Furthermore, the usage of augmented reality is growing in the healthcare profession, allowing for high-resolution audio and video transmission, easing distant cooperation, and permitting the representation of previously unseen concepts.

In addition, the group is focusing on new ways to address the covid – 19 problems. Doctors on the front lines of the COVID outbreak, for example, utilize Microsoft HoloLens headsets to help with their patient care. Moreover, the use case for this project allows other doctors to sit in another room and watch a live video stream of the doctor treating the COVID-19 patients via Microsoft Teams. Using the devices, staff decreased the amount of time they had to spend in a high-risk region by 83 %.

Since mixed reality technology is still in its early stages, the current epidemic is also harming it. The supply of end-use mixed reality goods has been hampered due to the lockdown and travel prohibitions affecting many businesses such as IT and telecommunications, transportation and logistics, and others. Many countries facing challenges with the supply of VR/AR headsets and other equipment.
