Metaverse: Virtual Becomes Real (page 7)


The Metaverse is the future of the internet, and businesses and business leaders should look to embrace the opportunity to enhance their customer and employee digital experiences and prepare to pivot onto the new interaction models. It will be a key force that shapes the future of industries, business models, and organizational architectures. The Metaverse is not just for entertainment but has broader implications for the future of global society.

Global Metaverse Market to Reach US$758.6 Billion by the Year 2026 [i]. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Metaverse estimated at US$107.1 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$758.6 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 37.1% over the analysis period.

At the dawn of the Internet age, enterprising entrepreneurs profited by going online while others sat on the sidelines and eventually disappeared. This is the reason that there are no Blockbuster video rentals, Borders bookstores, and Toys R Us shops today. Disrupt or be disrupted. Businesses may choose to play catch up to survive but need to innovate to truly thrive. Whether you are in manufacturing, retail, automotive, healthcare, banking, finance, fashion, realty, event management, or anything else there is a Metaverse use case worth exploring today.

The virtual is here, it is real and is not a game.
