Recently, Mapbox, a reputed custom online maps provider, has made to the headlines with the announcement of its acquisition of a Minsk-based artificial intelligence unicorn, Mapdata. Among the various future projects that are claimed to get onboarded through the deal, Mapdata, reportedly, would help Mapbox develop advanced augmented reality based maps that work in sync with the front cameras of the users’ devices. With increasing number of companies seeking to leverage the maximum potential of the technology across mainstream as well as off beat applications, it is certain that augmented reality market is on its way to gain substantial momentum in the years ahead.

While the underlying technology and the application expanse of augmented reality market is rapidly advancing, one of the major constraints that is somewhat acting as a deterrent in the business penetration is the privacy vulnerability concerns associated with the technology. The integration of AR technology into any platform requires disclosure of personal info, which when mishandled often lead to privacy risks. However, renowned companies partaking in augmented reality market are readily investing in research activities to come up with innovative solutions that would address the rising privacy concerns.

Considering the robust initiatives being undertaken worldwide to harness the fullest potential of this technology, augmented reality industry, though still at a nascent stage, is certain to achieve phenomenal gains over the coming seven years. Estimates by Global Market Insights, Inc. claims the overall augmented reality market size to exceed a valuation of USD 50 billion by 2024.
