Immersive technology, such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), is developing and diversifying at breakneck speed and transforming all sectors, including health, education, gaming, entertainment, retail and manufacturing.
The global video games market is expected to generate over $200 billion by the end of 2023 as it continues to grow, indicating the long-term opportunities that will be available in the sector. While the UK video games market hit a record high of £7 billion in 2020 as lockdown caused an unprecedented surge in the popularity of mobile games, consoles and virtual reality headsets.
With industries beyond video gaming realising the full potential of real-time 3D (RT3D) content, there has been significant growth in the global demand for skilled Unity developers. Unity is one of the most in-demand technology skills and has one of the highest forecasted growth rates, at over 70% in the next 10 years.
Partnering with Unity
IN4 works with Unity, the world’s leading platform for creating and operating RT3D content, offering extensive in-person expertise and insight to drive immersive and gaming technology innovations.
Creators, ranging from game developers to artists, architects, automotive designers, filmmakers, and more, use Unity to make their imaginations come to life, with an average of 5 billion downloads every month in 2020.
The blend of real-time technology and broadcast media industries also amplifies the cutting-edge opportunities available in the rapidly growing areas of esports and virtual production.
