Each year we survey our VIVE developers to gain a better understanding of the community. From who they are to what motivates them, what projects they’re tackling and the challenges they face, listening is how we learn to be the best advocate and partner for the VR developer community.
When asked how the industry has changed the most in the past year, over half (53%) of respondents noted the increase in corporate adoption. Developers are finding that more companies are incorporating VR into their processes and shifting their priorities accordingly.
The next three most cited changes in the past year showcase positive signs for the industry as well. Better development tools and documentation (43%), wider end-user adoption (42%) and more developers entering the space (41%) are all signs the market is maturing and that developers are getting the resources necessary to build quality experiences.
With this increase in commercial VR use, it’s not surprising that more developers than ever are focused on enterprise audiences. In fact, more developers are now building enterprise applications (46%) than consumer experiences (42%) according to survey results. Compared to last year’s findings, developers focused on creating business solutions jumped 14% this year.
