Digital Twin Industry Overview
The global digital twin market size was valued at USD 7.48 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 155,839.4 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 39.1% over the forecast period. 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. This impacted the market during the first half of the pandemic in 2020. However, as the number of COVID-19 cases started reducing and restrictions were lifted, the market began recovering strongly as several industries started moving toward automation and virtualization of products as well as processes.
While the world is now on the path of recovery, a lot of uncertainty remains surrounding the spread of new COVID-19 variants. As such, several nations are expected to implement digital twin technology as a part of their economic reform activities. 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.

The integration of digital twin technology with technologies, such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and cloud computing, is further expected to boost the market growth. Organizations are deploying IIoT and AI technologies to collect and analyze behavioral data from existing IoT devices and connected products, which can be later applied to the digital twin model to replicate the existing device’s performance and usage. This helps product engineers and designers observe the product performance and identify any issues as well as predict future iterations of common problems. The deployment of these technologies also aids organizations in enhancing operations and system productivity, thereby improving the overall product performance.
Several organizations are focused on deploying digital twin solutions to optimize their supply chains and operational processes to recover from economic disruptions caused by the pandemic. As such, cloud companies like Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud are focusing on launching various cloud-based digital twin solutions for industry players for easy accessibility and customized solutions. For instance, in January 2022, Google Cloud launched a supply chain digital twin, which is expected to provide manufacturers and distributors with unprecedented visibility of operations occurring in their supply chains. Such innovative solutions and the growing demand for automation in various industries are anticipated to trigger the demand for the digital twin platform over the forecast period.
The increasing deployment of cloud and IoT technologies is also leading to security and data privacy threats and the increased risk of cyberattacks. Cloud-based digital twins require online storage of asset information, subsequently leading to security and privacy concerns. Moreover, the lack of skilled professionals makes it harder for organizations to develop an efficient cybersecurity strategy. As such, several Small&Medium Enterprises(SMEs) are still hesitant to invest heavily in advanced technologies, which is expected to pose a challenge to market growth.
