“Head-up Displays is to grow at highest CAGR in augmented reality market during forecast period”

Augmented reality head-up displays are currently in an introductory phase and are all set to revolutionize the automotive sector. Many companies such as Continental, WayRay, and Visteon have already entered the market with their own plans for AR HUDs.

There have been indications of BMW introducing AR HUDs in their upcoming premium models, to be launched in 2020. Some of the current versions of BMW (7 series) have traditional HUDs. BMW has introduced an augmented reality app that provides a virtual experience of its cars. Here, such apps available for the virtual viewing of automobiles have been considered in the software market segment covered in the report and hence do not contribute to the standing of the HUD segment. BMW had also stated in a blog in March 2016 that they are still some time away from producing commercially-available AR HUDs for their automobiles.
