The Metaverse sector faces certain challenges that it will need to overcome before it sees a boom in its integration with healthcare. These include patient data privacy, high-tech equipment costs, and advanced digital healthcare infrastructure, the report says.

While many parts of the world are expected to take their own time in thoroughly exploring the metaverse, the regions of North America and Asia Pacific are likely to be market leaders in the metaverse healthcare sector. India. China, and Japan have also been named among lucrative locations for the growth of this integrated industry.

A number of research firms like InsightAce are conducting studies around metaverse technology and have reported varied projections.
