Here’s a comprehensive study from Analysis Group 1 that investigates the potential contribution of the Metaverse to global economic activity, in these times in which estimating this specific economic impact presents substantial challenges.
Since, as with all innovations, it is impossible to predict all of the areas in which Metaverse technologies will be used, this research collects and applies existing data and tools from related sectors, technologies, and consumer behaviors, to create a potential analogy for the Metaverse to be analyzed.
The goal of this study is not comparing Metaverse to another technology but to learn from the adoption process and economic impact of existing technologies to draw inferences about the potential adoption process and economic impact of the Metaverse and its ecosystem (similar to mobile technology, the range of expected applications for the Metaverse is far-reaching, including the communications, entertainment, education, healthcare, manufacturing, and retail sectors).
The main focus is measuring the potential economic impact of the Metaverse as if it were to evolve like prior successful technologies in terms of the level and rate of adoption by users and the impact on GDP.
