The Future of E-Commerce Product Visualization

The pandemic has resulted in 28% of people preferring to shop online. This has compelled business to implement a digital approach, significantly prompting the adoption of "Augmented Reality and 3D customization" technologies. To provide unique customer experiences and increase user engagement, it is essential that visualization of e-commerce products is at its most advanced level when it comes to buying products online. The two key factors driving the current tech innovation in e-commerce are Augmented Reality and 3D customization. The e-commerce industry is predicted to continue to grow beyond the pandemic, only cementing the scope for AR and 3D.

When it comes to online shopping, product images are one of the most important factors consumers consider while purchasing products. The return rate of a product bought online is more than twice as compared to a product purchased in a brick-and-mortar shop. Nowadays, customers are ready to pay more for a product if they visually see it beforehand and are convinced of its shape, colour, dimension, and many other vital aspects.

Digital commerce and visualization are increasingly becoming popular. Many industries are adopting Augmented Reality over standard visualization and looking to provide a seamless UX experience. Recent times have proven that Augmented Reality is more fitting when trying a product upfront in one's own space.

While many businesses and brands have started opting for 3D visualization strategies for their products, only 1% of brands currently use Augmented Reality due to cost and time constraints. The reason for this is because most businesses are not comfortable experimenting with new concepts. The question then arises, why not opt for a 3D and Augmented Reality experience when customers are willing to pay more, and the conversion rate is higher?
