Digital twins recreate physical objects and processes virtually across factories and industrial plants. Using sensors and internet of things technologies, digital twins collect real-time data to help optimize processes, spot inefficiencies, predict failures and reduce downtime.
The global Digital Twin Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 12.26 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
The increasing demand from manufacturing industry is a major trend fueling growth of the digital twin market. Manufacturing companies are increasingly adopting digital twin technology to gain real-time visibility into their operations and processes. Digital twins help manufacturing firms streamline processes, reduce production costs, enhance productivity and quality. They can detect anomalies and inefficiencies on the plant floor and provide analytics to optimize asset performance. With digital twins, manufacturers can achieve interconnectivity across production units, track inventory levels more efficiently and respond faster to disruptions. This is expected to drive increasing demand from the manufacturing sector over the forecast period.
Strength: Digital twin technology enables optimization of processes and systems by simulating real-world scenarios through virtual representations. It allows testing scenarios without impacting production.
Weakness: High costs associated with development and maintenance of digital twins. Lack of common standards and interoperability between digital twins makes data integration challenging.
Opportunity: Increased adoption across industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, aerospace & defense due to benefits such as predictive maintenance capabilities and remote monitoring. Growing focus on Industry 4.0 also drives the demand.
Threats: Concerns around data privacy and security with large scale collection and sharing of operational data. Competition from open-source and cheaper alternatives can affect demand.
