Consumer-level virtual reality (VR) received its first big push in 2016 with major headset launches from Facebook(NASDAQ:FB), HTC (NASDAQOTH:HTCCY), and Sony (NYSE:SNE), but uptake for the technology fell short of many analysts’ expectations, and there are a range of challenges that threaten to limit future adoption.Sales for Facebook’s Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive headsets dried up after their respective launches, and SuperData cut its 2016 sales estimate for Sony’s PlayStation VR from 2.6 million units to 745,000 units — potentially worrying signs for the future of head-mounted displays.

VR still has compelling prospects, but it’s also clear that the technology will have to overcome certain roadblocks before it’s ready for prime time. In order to better understand the potential growth trajectory for virtual reality in 2017 and beyond, let’s take a look at some of the factors that are shaping the progression of the technology.
