After four consecutive quarters of declining virtual reality headset sales, VR for training is turning things around for the industry.

Headset sales for training is expected to reach $2.2 billion by 2022, according to Greenlight Insights, prompting companies like start-up Pixo VR to make the switch from gaming to VR training.

Watch the video to see how VR training could ensure the future for the mixed reality industry.
