While the metaverse is a long-term vision, the buildup to this future offers a runway of new opportunities for merging the virtual and physical worlds. In its latest whitepaper, The Very Real Revenue Opportunities in the Metaverse, global technology intelligence firm ABI Research breaks down the current building blocks that form the foundation of the metaverse and forecasts the Total Addressable Market (TAM) and revenue opportunities through 2030.
“Since the metaverse is many years away, uncertainties and hurdles make forecasting the rate of transformation challenging,” says Michael Inouye, Metaverse Markets and Technologies Principal Analyst at ABI Research. “In order to get a more accurate and complete picture of this future, it is valuable to measure the broader opportunities within the media and entertainment and enterprise markets as a potential TAM. When viewed collectively, these opportunities will serve as building blocks for the metaverse, forming the foundation of a lucrative and growing market.”
These building blocks include:
- Virtual Spaces
- Video Streaming
- Video Gaming
- Cloud Gaming
- Digital Advertising
