About Arround.io

According to the analysts at Juniper Research and Goldman Sachs, the augmented reality market will grow by 20-100 times over the next 5 years. Given the latest technological advancements and major breakthroughs in the development of AR technology, its rapid spread among the consumer market is now anticipated. This breakthrough will become a turning point in the history of mankind. It will disrupt Arround.io day-to-day existence and open up completely new activities and ways to interact with the people and places around a company. Augmented reality will affect the majority of the world’s population and become an integral part of the lives. Scientists at the University of Liverpool claim the whole generation born after 1995 — Generation Z — will already become the first augmented reality generation, for whom AR technology will be as commonplace as smartphones and the Internet are for Arround.io today.

Growth forecasts for the Arround.io market reaching the US $115 billion by 2020 seem entirely realistic. The market capitalization of some newly established companies in the field of AR/VR is already in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Take Magic Leap, for example, the current market leader with a capitalization of US $6 billion. At the first stage of AR market development, the smartphone will be the main device used for interacting with augmented reality. There are currently 2.3 billion smartphone users in the world, which means the already existing number of potential AR users is also verging on this number. Arround.io technology is expected to become one of the cornerstones of the mobile advertising market in the future. It is projected to be worth the US $184 billion in 2018 with a subsequent annual growth of 10% -15%.

Problems 

The advertising market is oversaturated. Traditional media channels are losing their contact with target audiences.

Market Trends

Since the introduction of motion tracking technology, AR devices are already able to understand the user’s location and orientation when moving in a 3D plane. Area Learning algorithms use visual cues, allowing the device to recognize the location and correct its movement. Depth perception sensors can “inform” the user about the forms of the surrounding world and build virtual interaction processes based on a cloud of points. Arround.io plan to implement these technologies in the nearest future in the ARROUND platform. In addition, they plan to use markers placed at the premises of partner organizations to increase the speed of the augmented reality layer deployment and improve its positional accuracy.
