A core AR-enabling technology provider develops and sells or licenses core technologies such as libraries and algorithms, sensors and acceleration sensor fusion hardware. This is a very large and diverse segment that includes semiconductor manufacturers.
Virtually all companies in this segment are focused on businesses other than Augmented Reality. Their primary investments are in vertical markets such as military/defense, automotive or aviation. Or their business models rely on high-volume sales for inclusion into mass market devices.
To the extent that customers seek solutions that include AR, this core enabler segment is responsive. However, with few exceptions, this segment is not leading the charge.
The AREA provides resources to support enterprise AR core technology providers through all phases, from hiring of key experts and partnering with providers of software development and integration services to the development of strong customer relationships.
