New Study Reveals 35 Percent of U.S. Adults Have Used Augmented Reality

New data from Thrive Analytics and ARtillery Intelligence uncovers who's using mobile AR, how often, and in what ways.

LOS ANGELES - Amzeal -- Thrive Analytics and ARtillery Intelligence have released a new report: AR Usage & Consumer Attitudes, Wave 8. ARtillery Intelligence authored survey questions and a narrative report while Thrive Analytics administered the survey through its established survey engine.

Highlights include the fact that 35 percent of U.S. adult consumers have used mobile AR – up from 32 percent in the previous survey wave. Consumers are also using AR with high frequency, with 46 percent of mobile AR users engaging at least weekly, and 80 percent at least monthly. This is a strong demand signal, given that active use is a key metric for any consumer technology.

Top mobile AR experience categories include social lenses, due to Snap's AR investment and innovation, as well as emerging platforms like TikTok Effect House. Other categories such as AR shopping and visual search (e.g., Google Lens) continue to gain traction.

"Gaming and social are typically where new consumer technologies germinate," said ARtillery Intelligence Chief Analyst, Mike Boland. "But history tells us that lasting value develops around utilities that solve everyday problems. This includes AR's ability to add dimension to shopping and to contextualize real-world surroundings through informational overlays, or even audio."

Lastly, though this report focused on mobile AR, 15 percent of those users report that they've made the leap to AR glasses, such as Xreal Air 2 and others. This is a small but meaningful share that represents the early stages of AR's evolution from handheld to head-worn.

"AR and VR remain in early-adoption phases," said Thrive Analytics Managing Partner Jason Peaslee. "But though there are typical challenges and adoption barriers, these technologies will gradually transform the way people work, connect, and learn. We're committed to quantifying that evolutionary path over the next several years."
