Adoption of Product Twin across Healthcare & Life Science Sectors to be an Emerging Trend

The integration of dual solutions in the fields of healthcare and life sciences is seen as one of the emerging trends. These solutions are rapidly being used across the pharmaceutical industry to project process completion, resulting in fewer physical and real-world tests or process closures. These factors support medical users in the development and certification of drug applicants. The Swedish Digital Twin Consortium stated that product twin solutions are in the developing phase and could be used for personalized healthcare treatment, which helps to develop secure network models and then match those twins analytically.

With the rise in awareness of digital solutions, companies are engaged in launching new digital life science R&D models. For instance, Hewlett Packard Enterprise collaborated with the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausannes (EPFL) and use their supercomputers to create digital models of the brain for research. Therefore, increasing development in the industry and increasing demand for advanced technology will increase the market share of digital twins.


Increasing Adoption of 3D Simulation and 3D Printing Software to Fuel Market Growth

3D printing is rapidly evolving, and a rising number of materials are now 3D printable. Some materials may distort throughout the 3D printing process, necessitating a lengthy trial and error period. As a result, the cost of printing parts increases, as does the time it takes to print them. Twins can be used to imitate the 3D printing production process. The twins can predict whether and where distortions may arise, allowing them to be repaired on the 3D model. As a result, a new model is created that is fully optimized to adjust for the differences. For instance,

  • In May 2021, the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command collaborated with a Wichita State University team to integrate twin technology into its helicopter fleet Black Hawk. Using the technology, 3D scanning technologies will create a virtual model of the UH-60L Black Hawk. The National Institute for Aviation Research is also a part of the collaboration (NIAR).

Thus, the increasing demand for 3D simulation is expected to boost the market growth.


Concerns of Privacy and Security to Impede the Adoption of Twin Solutions

The demand for twin solutions based on technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, cloud, and artificial intelligence, is becoming more common in industries. For developing the physical twin, the solution involves the integration of multiple IoT sensors and other digital technologies. With the increasing number of IoT sensors and programmable electronic devices, there is an augmented risk of security, compliance, and data protection, as well as legislation.

There might be a high prospect of some anonymous individual or a hacker effortlessly stealing the information of mechanisms owing to a lack of privacy-related rules. Increasing concerns about privacy and security are predicted to affect the demand across healthcare, government, and critical infrastructure sectors. This is likely to hamper the digital twin market share.
