According to a Juniper Research study, there is a forecast for about 60 million smartphone VR headsets to be shipped in 2021. This is going to be an increase of around 240 % on an expected 16.8 million recorded from this year. However smartphones bringing in lower prices, will account to only 7% of the hardware revenue.
The research also found out that the current free premiums and lower-priced content will impact price expectations in the coming future. However, the research cautioned that a largely free premium market will impact the quality of smartphone VR games.
