D-BOX operates in two major areas: the entertainment market and the simulation and training market which have their respective sub-markets.  Business development activities aim to increase motion system sales and grow its recurring revenue.  This strategy will help solidify D-BOX’s position in existing sub-markets and facilitate entering new segments.

D-BOX’s expertise in immersive motion and true-to-life simulation positions the Corporation to be an active participant in the growing virtual reality (VR) market.  The Corporation is actively developing new applications for VR and other related markets.  D‑BOX proprietary technology may also enhance the expansion of VR by reducing the motion dizziness sometimes associated with VR experiences.  D-BOX is particularly focused on this new trend as the size of the virtual and augmented reality markets grow, potentially to billions of dollars in the near future, according to many industry sources.
