How has the exit activity for virtual reality (VR) developed in the first half of 2019? This blog post explores VR exit metrics through Q2 2019 and compares them to previous years. The graph below shows the number of VR exits by year, stacked by quarters.
As the graphic demonstrates, VR has seen a total of 4 exit events through Q2 of this year. This represents 36% of the total exits in 2018, and is equal to the exits through Q2 in 2018. Some of the exit events in 2019 include Leap Motion’s acquisition by Ultrahaptics, Blippar’s acquisition by Candy Capital, and Walkthrough’s acquisition by PlanOmatic.
A straight-line projection of the completed exit activity this year would come out to 8 exit events, which comprises 73% of the total exits in 2018. On the other hand, a weighted quarterly average projection of 2019 exit activity would come out to 11 exit events, which is on par with the total exits in 2018. Therefore, based on the mid-year data, VR exit activity in 2019 is projected to be approximately similar to the exit activity in 2018.
