Regardless of what the metaverse holds for them in the event of games, there is a huge majority of adults in the United States prepared to invest in that, according to a KPMG survey.
Whether they agree to what it is or not, the meta-verse has captured the imagination of the American. KPMG said about 78% of adults of the United States said that immersive interactions like socializing and family benefit from education, while 76% say they benefit from on-the-job training.
Interestingly, 58 percent of the american adults report that the metaverse will have profound consequences for their lives in the next 12 months, while 40 percent increase their impact in the next five years.
While it may still be early days, the U.S. adults adapt to real life experiences across the phygital world, said Cliff Justice, U.S. leader in enterprise innovation at KPMG. When he interacts, the man becomes more accustomed to daily activities in the metaverse. From banking to telemedicine, to learning and working, the medium that we use to communicate and interact is becoming increasingly more and more expensive.
KPMG surveyed 13,000 adults aged 18-18. You’ll learn about the metaverse in our GamesBeat Summit next 2022 event. For example, Sambient creator Will Wright, cofounder of Gallium, and Matthew Ball, CEO of Epyllion and author of the popular book The Metaverse.

Regardless of whether consumers are engaging in the material sense, a majority of Americans are interested in virtual experiences. Out of socialization, telemedicine (72%), virtual shopping apps (67%), virtual work (65%), start-ups (51%) are the highest among the top 10.
The pace of more effective adoption is at an unprecedented rate, but existing skepticism may create barriers along the way. According to the study, protection and data protection (80%) were the most important concerns.
In the same way, feeling confident about personal information and privacy were the key factors to encourage participation. If you aspire to access affordable technologies, you will have access to customizable avatars, or be the best place to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the metaverse.
Nearly one third (30%) of respondents say that ensures that metaverse environments are accessible to those with disabilities must be the priority across the category.
Although the companies and people still understand the impact of the metaverses and the potential scope and scale, we must prioritize inclusion, safe and secure practices so that users are protected and an experience adaptable, said Justice. The recalcitration to innovation is low and this is time for the implementation of these priorities across the new technologies, while they continue to evolve.
In light of its strategic innovation roadmap, KPMG recently established a partnership with KPMG in Canada to create an open source collaboration hub where employees, clients and communities can connect, engage and explore potential opportunities for growth across industries and sectors. The firm created a dedicated team to help clients develop and execute their own metamorphological strategies.
