Ever since the retail market has surged in terms of produced goods and customers, eCommerce has followed. No wonder, the German online portal for statistics, Statista, places the growth in retail eCommerce space at a whopping amount of $4.8 trillion for the year 2021. Behind such a steep rise in the popularity of eCommerce is the right use of technological advancements that drive this market. The positives of an eCommerce store span far more than the negatives. For instance, while eCommerce stores lack face-to-face personal interaction, the introduction of AI assistants, chatbots, personal inquiry forums, and many other better customer engagement solutions have negated the absence of personal touch. Another interesting technique that eCommerce retailers are adopting is interactive product visualization. To bridge the gap between what feels real and virtual to their customers, firms are leveraging virtual reality (VR), 3D imaging, augmented reality (AR), and more technologies, enabling consumers to interact with a product from the comfort of their laptop or smartphone. What was once an infomercial that no one paid attention to has transformed into an immersive, 360-degree online shopping experience.
