Dentsu India has released its latest research report titled 'Adoption of XR technology in India’. The report has been created in collaboration with Recogn - dentsu India's research division, and Digital Behaviour Initiative - started by Dr. Sumitava Mukherjee at IIT Delhi.

It is pertinent to note here that the Digital Behavior Initiative at IIT Delhi aims to work as a non-partisan academic research-based information tank in India that engages and informs the public about key aspects of human behavior or cognition in the digital world. The report has been jointly designed by Dr. Sumitava Mukherjee from IIT Delhi and Dr. Payel C Mukherjee from IIIT Delhi.

The report discusses the various aspects of immersive XR technologies that will change the face of business and improve customer experiences. It also addresses consumer attitudes toward extended reality technologies. Additionally, it delves into how businesses can align themselves to implement these technologies in their operations, processes, etc. 

The launch of 5G services in India has only added to the digital landscape's boom. This is a defining moment in the ease of doing business and will revolutionise the digital sector. It will boost the Indian economy and reform industries such as agriculture, healthcare, education, logistics, transportation, and fintech. 5G services will significantly improve the nation's digital ecosystem and usher in the next phase of the industrial revolution.

The initial purpose of using a VR device for users was entertainment like attending concerts, watching movies, or playing games. The level of detail in the Metaverse combined with the ability to network in one platform is set to alter the course of human interaction. The most important aspect of moving on to this phase would be hardware in the form of virtual reality headsets. XR technologies including Metaverse, and VR devices will herald a new era of experience. Businesses will need to raise awareness and develop robust use cases to move customer adoption of this technology from novelty to necessity.
