The global digital twin market size is projected to reach USD 155.83 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 37.5% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study by Grand View Research Inc. Digital twin technologies were primarily developed and deployed in manufacturing, aerospace, and automotive sectors for designing and simulating component and system twins. However, the rising need for virtualization and automation as well as the emergence of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence has opened up new avenues for digital twin solution providers across industries such as retail, real estate, banking and finance, and healthcare, thereby driving the market growth.
Digital twins enable enterprises to create virtual representations of their existing workflow patterns, which can be then observed and optimized to reduce operational costs. The retail and residential sectors are expected to witness increased adoption of digital twin technologies with an increasing focus on optimizing vendor-to-customer supply chains, sales forecasts, and the development of smart city projects. The emergence of such varied applications has increased the demand for tailor-made solutions across end-use industries to address specific requirements, which is anticipated to fuel market growth.
The COVID-19 pandemic has expedited the adoption of digital twin technology across several industries owing to social distancing norms in place. As offices are on the verge of reopening, several firms are expected to adopt the technology to facilitate employee safety by creating digital twins of workplaces and modifying furniture, workplaces, and sitting arrangements, among other applications. Additionally, the healthcare sector has witnessed a surge in the adoption of digital twin technology to create virtual replicas of infected patients and use them for future research. For instance, in May 2021, Dell Technologies partnered with i2b2 tranSMART Foundation to create digital twins using de-identified patient data. The digital twin is then expected to help researchers perform innumerable treatment simulations for future treatments, which may help mitigate the spread of the disease.
