The Japan metaverse market size is anticipated to reach USD 56.73 billion by 2030. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 48.2% from 2024 to 2030. Emerging innovations in gaming technology worldwide are expected to drive this growth. Some other factors that propel the growth of the Japan metaverse industry include the rise in virtual events and conferences, online shopping, and the need to test and inspect machinery using augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

The COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the metaverse market in Japan. The increase in virtual social platforms, such as cluster.mu and VRChat, boosted the user base of VR devices. The metaverse is finding numerous applications apart from socialization; for instance, in June 2020, during COVID-19, a hospital in Tokyo incorporated a surgery over VR live-streamed for research and educational purposes.

Numerous companies are collaborating to make Japan metaverse-ready in line with the Society 5.0 initiative.

This agreement is based on the concept of updating Japan through the power of games, developed by Hajime Tabata, a renowned game creator, and Web 3.0 advisor for the Japanese Government's Digital Agency. The Japan Metaverse Economic Zone is also being created through the endorsement of each company.

Virtual live events are being widely accepted in Japan. For instance, in September 2023, Dentsu Group Inc. enhanced xambr, a metaverse system to promote it at large-scale events. The system was used at TOKYO GAME SHOW VR 2023 at virtual venue. The virtual venue at TOKYO GAME SHOW VR 2022 attracted around 0.4 million visitors, with 98.5% of participants intending to revisit.
