The Metaverse’s $900bn Value Projection by 2030

Research suggests that engaging early in the foundational phase of the metaverse could yield significant benefits as technological advancements facilitate more immersive interactive experiences.

Despite skepticism around the hype of the metaverse, a recent study by Bain & Company presents a contrasting view, forecasting that the metaverse could reach a monumental value of $900 billion by 2030. However, the realization of its full potential may be a decade in the making.

In their report, “Demystifying the Metaverse’s Buzz,” Bain highlights the concrete and growing business opportunities associated with the metaverse. Companies that dive into the early, or “seed stage,” of the metaverse in the next decade stand a better chance of leading the market.

Chris Johnson, a prominent figure in Bain’s Tech division, remarked on the metaverse’s growing traction, noting, “It’s exciting to see its technological integration across various sectors.”

He further highlighted the example of immersive gaming platforms that have already attracted hundreds of millions of users monthly. “The future trajectory of the metaverse remains uncertain, but our research indicates five key areas that leaders should consider if they aim to be pioneers and subsequently grow. The path forward promises more interactive and shared experiences, thanks to rapid advancements in technology.”

Bain’s research suggests the metaverse will not form a single, unified entity. Existing platforms may shift towards more interactive, rich models, while emerging metaverse-inspired platforms will aim for wider user engagement.

Moncef Maghrebi from Bain & Company Middle East emphasized the diverse strategies currently in play, from comprehensive approaches that cover the entire spectrum of the metaverse to niche strategies focused on specific segments. “The ultimate winning strategy and the direction of the ecosystem (comprehensive vs. niche) will become clear as the market matures.”

A variety of sectors, including entertainment and employee training, are already exploring technologies associated with the metaverse.


Competitive Frontiers in the Metaverse: Bain’s study earmarks five pivotal areas for leaders eyeing a slice of the metaverse pie:

  1. Virtual Realms (Predicted to account for 65% of 2030’s metaverse market): Beyond gaming, immersive leisure and fitness applications hold promise. For businesses, intriguing possibilities are sprouting in realms like digital advertising, workforce development, academic pursuits, and healthcare.
  2. Metaverse Craftsmanship Utilities (Estimated at 5% of 2030’s market): A burgeoning array of digital tools are facilitating the crafting of metaverse realms, enabling users to effortlessly generate content.
  3. Digital Marketplaces & Operating Systems (Envisioned to be 10% of the market in 2030): Curated app repositories will be pivotal in the metaverse’s embryonic stages, offering users top-tier experiences compatible with their chosen metaverse access mediums.
  4. Gadgetry (Also projected to be 10% by 2030): The road ahead demands the evolution of ergonomic, independent gadgets offering truly immersive experiences. For broader acceptance, metaverse content must be device-agnostic, encompassing PCs, gaming stations, and mobiles.
  5. Tech Backbone & Infrastructure (Likely to claim 10% by 2030): Hardware entities are tasked with the challenge of crafting superior chips, servers, and network technologies, ensuring sublime graphics and minimal lag.

In essence, while the metaverse’s trajectory remains nebulous, its potential is undeniable, and its vastness, intriguing.
