Digital Twin App Revenue will Reach $13B by 2023

A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of a connected physical product, process or service across its whole lifecycle. The virtual replica uses operational real-time data to enable the detection of issues and advance learning. It's also used in simulation scenarios for the physical model counterpart.

Digital business enablers, such as big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, software analytics and cloud solutions, as well as the growing demand for sensors to capture and process data, have been significant drivers for the adoption of Digital Twin applications.

Digital Twin Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, revenues from Digital Twin applications will reach $13 billion by 2023. Recent market growth is estimated at $9.8 billion in 2019 -- with an average annual growth rate of 35 percent during the forecast period.

The research found that increased deployments of advanced sensors to capture data, and technological advances such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing are expanding the advantages of using Digital Twins.

Juniper ranked the companies within the market and identified those that have supported their Digital Twin offerings by combining in-house Industrial IoT expertise and close collaboration with other market participants. The leading Digital Twin suppliers include General Electric, Siemens, IBM, PTC, Microsoft and Bosch.


Juniper analysts also found that advanced Digital Twin operations will help human workers to focus on maximizing productivity in areas that the technology cannot address, such as customer service.

The new research forecasts that Digital Twin revenues from manufacturing will reach an estimated $4.5 billion in 2023 -- that's up from $1.4 billion in 2019. Manufacturing, as the fastest growing sector, will account for over 34 percent of the total Digital Twin revenue in 2023.

Outlook for Digital Twin Application Growth

Two other sectors leading growth in net incremental Digital Twin application revenues over the forecast period are Transportation by $2.5 billion, plus Energy and Utilities by $1.1 billion.

"In future, we will see numerous trials combining IoT, Digital Twin and AI to justify time and investment in deploying the technology within and between enterprises. This holds true for multi-location operating industries such as supply chain," said Elson Sutanto, principal analyst at Juniper Research.

IoT Device Management Demand Gains Momentum

More forward-thinking CIOs and CTOs are focused on the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Management challenges are top of mind for those who have already deployed a large number of sensors and associated network edge devices. Device management services are evolving in response to a greater breadth of new device technologies such as edge intelligence and related connectivity solutions, as well as the customer scalability and security of IoT deployments. But forward-looking suppliers are also preparing for a world where 41.3 percent of the connected devices will be using some form of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies by 2026. IoT Device Management Market Development Since IoT customers increasingly need to manage a larger fleet of connected devices, ABI Research now forecasts that IoT device management services will exceed $36.8 billion in revenues by 2026. Standardization is beginning to play a bigger role in device management services, as more connected devices use LPWA t

Anywhere, Anytime Workplace Demand for SASE

The ongoing adoption of flexible working models within the enterprise market has significant implications for typical IT organizations that must now support knowledge workers and front-line employees that operate outside the corporate network perimeter. The global COVID-19 pandemic created IT networking and security challenges. The expansion of the distributed workforce, an increasing reliance on cloud computing infrastructure, and the requirement to securely connect online employees -- wherever they choose to work, at any given moment in time. Legacy IT solutions that have rigid network underlays and a requirement for on-premises infrastructure cannot adequately deal with these trends. This 'Anywhere, Anytime Workplace' led to demand for new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions, with networking and security delivered as-a-service. Anywhere, Anytime Workplace Market Development   Although converging networking and security capabilities offer enterprises a promising solut

Cloud Edge Computing Demand Continues to Grow

Public cloud computing solutions are moving closer to the edge of networks where CIOs and CTOs are hosting new apps. The edge journey is well underway for forward-looking organizations as they seek to connect with customers, improve operational efficiency, and adopt digital business technologies to drive innovation. The latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC) found that three-quarters of organizations plan to increase their edge computing spending over the next two years with an average increase of 37 percent. A combination of factors is driving this increased spending at the edge. Cloud Edge Computing Market Development The performance requirements of expanding workloads and new use cases that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) demand greater compute capacity at the edge. In addition, the amount of data being stored in edge locations are rapidly expanding, and organizations plan to keep this data longer. As a result, the numbe
