Global Digital Twin Market Size, Outlook, and Revenue Forecast: Ken Research

Market Overview:

A digital twin is a digital representation of a real-world entity or system. The implementation of the digital twin is an encapsulated software object or model that reflects a unique physical object, process, organization, person, or other abstraction. Data from multiple digital twins can be used for composite views across different real-world entities, such as power plants or cities and their associated processes. For instance, wind turbines are equipped with various sensors related to important functional areas. These sensors generate data on various aspects of physical object performance, such as energy output, temperature, and weather conditions.

According to Ken Research Analysis, the Global Digital Twin Market was valued at ~US$ 3 billion in 2017. It is estimated to be ~US$ 8 billion in 2022 and is forecasted to reach a market size of ~US$ 40 billion, growing at a CAGR of ~30% owing to the rising demand from the manufacturing industry.

  • Increasing the use of digital twins in manufacturing sectors to cut costs and enhance supply chain efficiency is the major driving factor for the digital twin market. The advantage of using digital twin is that it helps to reduce the extra cost and time needed at the manufacturing time. Digital Twin helps engineers improve a product’s performance by analyzing and altering the physical design of the prototype, due to which almost all industries are using this technology for the enhancement of their business.
  • The cost of implementing Digital Twin technology in an organization is pretty high. High cost of implementation act as a barrier to the growth of the global digital twin market. Digital twins & related technologies
  • The market was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic during the first half of 2020, owing to the strict regulations in several countries that temporarily halted all types of companies. Production halts and supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 pandemic led to the suspension of several other activities along the value chain of industries, such as aerospace, manufacturing, and automotive. However, the market experienced a sudden boom as all the companies were adopting digital twin as a part of its processes. Digital twins could help build predictive models and determine the probability of success of physical prototypes before they are rolled out. The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital twin technology across various applications in several verticals beyond manufacturing, including real estate, healthcare, telecom, and retail, driving the growth prospects of the market.
