In 2023, the boom has subsided and the special situation of remote work due to the coronavirus pandemic has disappeared, so it can be said that we have entered a phase where the environment for accelerating business development is in place. An increasing number of companies are increasing their business performance by clarifying their business models and improving the market environment, and we can expect full-fledged expansion of the Metaverse market in the future.

First, the number of companies using Metaverse will increase in the corporate market, and then the market will expand driven by consumer users, so it is predicted that the market size will exceed 2 trillion yen by fiscal 2027.
