The Virtual Retinal Display (VRD) technology creates visual images by scanning low-power laser light directly onto the retina. Retinal projection plays a causal role where most wearable displays demand crude & fixed optics. The VRD-created images are bright, with high contrast and high resolution. Over recent years, VRD is garnering vast prominence due to its potential medical applications, such as surgical displays and displays for people with low vision.

Virtual reality headsets are increasingly becoming popular. The wide adoption of VR headsets across industries indicates its ability, which is not limited to enabling 3D experience in gaming, music, movies, or traveling but also stretches to defense and healthcare sectors.

However, traditional wearable displays create some degree of eye strain due to focusing on a display that's fairly close to the eyes. With retinal display, there is no display, allowing eyes to completely relax and let the optics do the work of focusing. Resultantly, virtual retinal displays are garnering vast market prominence.

Virtual Retinal Display Market Segments

The market is bifurcated into components, verticals, and regions. The component segment is sub-segmented into optics, driver & controller electronics, light source, and others. The vertical segment is sub-segmented into healthcare, aerospace & defense, consumer electronics, automotive, and others.

Among these, the healthcare segment accounts for the largest market share, owing to the benefits of this display technology in radiology, therapeutics, and surgery. The region segment is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and rest-of-the-world.

Virtual Retinal Display Market Competitive Analysis

The highly competitive virtual retinal display market appears to be fragmented due to several large and small-scale players forming a competitive landscape. Well-established players incorporate strategic initiatives such as acquisition, collaboration, expansion, and technology/product launch to gain a competitive advantage in this market. Makers employ a continuous improvement strategy to analyze and update their systems. Implementing improvements and launching new technologies, they try to meet the changing consumer needs.

The market would witness the entry of several new players who are technologically advanced and will capture a major portion of this fast-moving market in the coming years. This, in turn, is expected to intensify the competition in the market. The virtual retinal display market is anticipated to witness major developments, and major market players are expected to be seen making strategic investments in research and development activities and fostering their expansion plans.

For instance, recently, on June 20, 2022, Meta unveiled ultra-realistic VR display prototypes called Half Dome 3, developed using the metaverse. Meta has been spending colossally to develop high-end displays for virtual reality experiences. Half Dome 3 creates the retinal resolution with 60 pixels per degree.

At a press event, alongside the high-end prototype Half Dome 3, the company also revealed its headsets dubbed Butterscotch, Holocake 2, Starburst, and Mirror Lake, demonstrating its seriousness in delivering the metaverse. Designed to demonstrate a unique experience of retinal resolution in VR, Butterscotch retinal resolution prototypes create the near retinal resolution in VR experience at 55 pixels/degree, which is about 2.5 times more than the resolution of the Meta Quest 2.
