Future of AR and VR in Businesses

Technology has taken centre stage in our daily lives and is making us more connected, efficient and smart. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are 2 of the biggest technological boons that are bringing a revolution to how we live, interact and basically every other thing that we, as human beings, do. AR & VR have brought forth self-driving cars, gaming headsets, and other commodities that are transforming human lives in a faster and better way. 

“I do think that a significant portion of the population of developed countries, and eventually all countries, will have AR experiences every day, almost like eating three meals a day. It will become that much a part of you.”- Tim Cook, CEO of Apple Inc. 

What are Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality? 

Augmented Reality (AR) implies augmenting or adding something extra to your existing environment like an overlay. On the other hand, Virtual Reality (VR) means creating an artificial environment with software that the user believes is a real environment. 

In addition to changing or transforming our lives, AR and VR are changing the modus operandi of businesses.

AR and VR in Businesses:

Let’s take you through a few industries and show you how AR and VR are transforming them: 

  • Fashion: 

AR & VR can help brands provide enhanced customer experience with augmented reality and virtual reality. Customers can shop from virtual stores and go for a 3D try-on. This experience can be enjoyed from anywhere anytime in the world and gives a lot of free hand to enterprises to experiment without bearing the risk of fixed capital cost. 

  • Healthcare:

AR and VR will turn out to be a boon for the healthcare industry with apps, software and devices that will expedite the treatment process and provide faster treatment. AR Apps are already in this game and are allowing doctors to diagnose the human body easily and view affected areas without incisions. 

The concept of virtual hospitals is also doing the rounds with the help of game technology and medical imaging processes. It will lead to hassle-free operative procedures. 

  • Tourism:

AR will hugely impact the tourism industry by transforming the tours and sightseeing, local experiences, and others. The best example is how Google helps us with navigation and spots when you scan the street. 

Tourists can translate street signs, get sightseeing advice, indoor navigation, and others through AR. 

  • Gaming:

Pokemon, Star Wars, Tetris, Minecraft, and the list goes on are the products of the booming gaming industry infused with VR. Gaming companies are coming up with ideas to make games interesting and help gamers to be “in the game”. AR/VR arcades are booming and provide a huge opportunity to be a billion-dollar industry. 


It’s not just these industries, but there are many which will reap the benefits of AR and VR. It will not only make businesses more accessible and competitive but also allow brands to explore new territories to provide a wholesome experience for their customers. 


The global AR is set to hit a record high valuation of more than USD 60 Billion, and on the other hand, the VR market will achieve more than USD 20 Billion during a couple of years. Businesses are looking to transform, and customers are gearing up for a better and smarter experience. AR and VR are bringing forth a revolution to how business should be done and making it an interesting space to watch out for.

How Are AR And VR Technologies Transforming The Real Estate Business?

With changing times, customer behaviour, product demand, and business operations also change. As a reflection of this change, businesses have to constantly evolve in order to sustain and survive the pressing times. For this, they need to continuously attract the customer, as the business today is backed on the power of customer engagement.

Real Estate is one such industry which faces a lot of business damage if the customer is not engaged rightly. It is one such dynamic industry which is rapidly changing every day. From site updates to project inclusions, everything changes in no time. As the customers today want everything available at their fingertips, it is necessary to embed new technologies in this business area.

Augmented Reality (VR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are the most trending digital technologies that provide an immersive experience to the user at the comfort of their home. In the real estate sector, they have transformed the way properties are designed, bought, sold, and maintained. It is estimated that about 90% of the real estate agencies worldwide have started using these technologies to provide the best service experience to their customers.

Here is a list of few experiences that AR and VR can deliver for the real estate industry:


Property Tour

In a typical property buying scenario, a customer will visit many different properties before deciding upon which one to buy. This entire process of visiting properties in-person is a very taxing, time-consuming, and energy-draining process; and more so if the properties are located far from where the customer lives.

Using VR technology can solve the above problems by allowing clients to virtually visit the properties and short-list the ones that they would want to visit in-person. They can experience a 3D walk-though of multiple properties in a day while seated at their homes. This immersive virtual experience is just as similar to the real one for customers to make informed decisions. Real estate developers and agents can use this technology to build interactive and guided property tours.


Virtual Staging 

Building a model house with chic home decor is an age-old marketing tactic to sell a property. This has been practised to increase the sales-conversion as customers like to see a step-up before buying. However, setting a model house with luxurious home decor for each of the properties can be an expensive task. This is where AR and VR technology can be of help.

By using these technologies, the real estate developer can showcase how the property looks like with staging(home decor). The technology can help them build designs of furniture and other essentials to provide a more detailed experience to the customer. This will help the real estate companies close the deal with lesser efforts and reduced lead cost.


Architectural Representation

Selling an under-constructed property is the biggest challenge for almost all the real estate developers in the world. Customers will have to make decisions seeing the 3D models, model flat, property plans, and some rendered property visuals. None of these provides an experiential view of the project. A customer can see, but not feel the project that they are investing in. Virtual reality can effectively help you solve this challenge. The technology can help the potential customer to visualise the interior, exterior, and surrounding areas of the project which isn’t built yet. This way customers get a better understanding of the property that they are investing in.

AR and VR have started spelling their magic in the real estate world. However, it is usually the large developers and agents that are investing in this technology. There is a lot of unexplored potential in this technology and more real estate developers and agents are yet to taste the success of it.
