a) MedTech
VR/AR/XR is becoming important in various medical areas, where applications are being used in fields such as medical research, medical training, imaging, psychology

b) Architecture and Engineering
Architecture is going through a major transformation where architects are converting to BIM (Building Intelligent Modelling). VR/AR/XR will play a significant role in this field.
In Engineering and Manufacturing companies VR/AR/XR is currently developed and used essentially for education purposes and prototyping. VR/AR/XR will gradually gain importance in manufacturing processes.

C) Edutainment, including Tourism and Culture
Serious Gaming and Edutainment are domains where most developments in VR/AR/XR will start. The developments will then subsequently roll over into industrial or scientific domains. Digitization through VR/AR/XR in those domains could be anything from MOOCs at universities, teaching at school, training at industrial/office sites, digital applications for tourist offices, digitization of museums with VR/AR/XR. All these examples will create different revenue models.
