Ecorys report | VR & AR set to create up to 480,000 jobs by 2020

Europe is a strong and competitive hub for Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and is set to become global leader. That is the key finding of a study by European research firm Ecorys, which projects that by 2020 the production value of VR and AR will increase between €15 billion and €34 billion in Europe and create between 225,000 to 480,000 direct and indirect new jobs across the continent. Such a significant economic uplift would make Europe’s VR and AR market first-in-class.
