Global Digital Twin Technology Market Overview

A digital twin is the virtual representation of a physical asset or a system or process that is developed using technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and the Internet of Things (IoT). It is used for determining and optimizing product performance via real-time analytics and observations. It could also be defined as the concept which represents the combination of the physical and the virtual world, where the digital representation of a given industrial product is analyzed. A digital twin leverages real-world data for creating simulations of a specific product or process. The product is observed from the initial design phase to the final deployment phase, which helps in assessing its performance in the future. The information gathered via digital twin technology helps businesses come up with innovations, besides creating value.

Digital Twin Technology Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Integration of Manufacturing with Technology

The latest version of digital twin technology deals not only with the virtual representation of the asset but also stores and helps with accessing certain product-related data using technologies such as RFID codes and CAD (Computer-aided design) 3D models. It has been predicted that in the coming years nearly 40% of the IoT platform vendors and businesses would actively integrate simulation platforms and capabilities to create digital twins effortlessly. The computer program uses real-world data to create simulations that can predict how a product or process will perform. Then these programs integrate the internet of things with artificial intelligence giving software analytics to enhance the final output.

Adoption of Digital Twin technology in the medical and pharmaceutical industry

Technological advancement is reshaping the healthcare industry by leaps and bounds, thus helping healthcare professionals to keep pace with the changing times. The digital twin technology has been transforming healthcare domains such as diagnosis and treatment decision support programs. Additionally, groundbreaking software solutions such as Exacture(powered by digital twin technology)have been introduced for lessening medication errors and to help patients from the adverse effects of a drug.


Data and Security Breach and Cyber Attacks

Digital twin technology leverages various digital technologies such as AI, big data, machine learning, etc. to help organizations innovate, optimize, and deliver matchless products and services to their customers. Because digital twins are cloud-based and don’t need physical infrastructure, the associated security risks are slimmer than that of other types of systems. Nevertheless, a massive amount of data that is collected and utilized are drawn from a multitude of endpoints, each of which represents a potential area of weakness. It is estimated that 75 % of digital twins will be integrated with at least five endpoints by 2023, all of which require a constant connection over the network and internet. Hence, the presence of a strong firewall system as well as anti-theft, anti-virus is a must to prevent IoT data compromise and eliminate cloud security risks. The ever-growing incidences of cyber-attacks have raised concerns regarding data security for the digital twins as well as their data storage security methodologies. This necessitates the formulation of industry-accepted security standards and regulations.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Digital Twin Industry

COVID-19 has accelerated the digitization process. The rapid adoption of extended reality such as AI, AR, and VR during the lockdown phase has transformed the industry scenario across sectors. Continuous advancements were made in order to overcome challenges, such as remote-controlling and radio accessing of machinery; observing operations and procedures of offshore oil refineries, windmills, etc. Digital twin technology can be a useful tool for managing uncertainties during the pandemic. For example, AI-backed systems in the automotive industry propelled Hyundai India’s significant growth during the lockdown phase. The company recorded the highest ever monthly production of 71,000 units in December 2020. Consequently, its, existing capacity expanded by over 19%. The lockdown phase also witnessed the adoption of VR/AR in e-learning, owing to the closure of almost all the educational institutions. Additionally, the efforts made in the drug dosage assessment and wearable digital bio-markers have come to fruition due to the COVID impact.
