Digital twins are part of the Industry 4.0 megatrend and are primarily used today for equipment design and testing. Only in the past two years has the concept of facility-wide digital twins gathered momentum due to the complexity involved in modelling and simulating the performance of industrial facilities. Reflecting the relative newness of this technology in the industrial space, vendors offer digital twin software at five different levels of sophistication – from digital twins that integrate data from various sources to one capable of acting autonomously. Verdantix expects the market for plant-level digital twins to grow slowly over the next five to 10 years with high-risk, asset-intensive industries being the early adopters. This report provides buyers of digital twin software at industrial facilities with an overview of the current state of the market and an assessment of different vendors who offer digital twin value propositions.
