Meta will continue to dominate VR sales despite increased competition in 2023


Ever since the original Oculus Quest launched, Meta has largely been alone in the standalone VR headset market. Sure, rivals like Pico and HTC have been making standalone headsets for nearly as long as Meta, but the company’s voracious desire to be the leader in the space has proven to be a successful strategy.

As a result, the Oculus Quest 2 is the most successful VR headset ever by a large margin (opens in new tab). While we don’t have full sales data points for how many headsets Meta sold in 2022 yet, it looks like the company may have pushed over the 20 million sold line; a triumph for the VR market as a whole and a representation of what’s to come.
