There are several apps available for Google Cardboard, including some very interesting ones, but they do not offer much utility factor. Also, the end users for these apps are limited to individual consumers and not the enterprise segment. There are several other uses of Google Cardboard such as teleconferencing, live streaming of meetings, concerts and videos, surveillance, simulation and training, and even pornography.

According to the report, the low cost of Google Cardboard is one of the major reasons for the virtual reality cardboard market to grow. It is the single most appealing factor for consumers. The assembly parts used to build VR cardboard are not expensive and nor does it require heavy machinery or huge manufacturing plants to produce VR cardboard.

Further, the report states that lack of content and low resolution apps, this is the major drawback the market is witnessing.
