Digital Twin Market, By Type of Twins,  2023-2035 (USD Billion)

The research and development behind a new drug is reported to require, on an average, an investment of nearly USD 1 billion. At present, over 90% of the drug candidates fail across different stages of clinical trials, leading to significant financial losses for developers. In recent years, with the introduction of industry 4.0 technologies, such as augmented reality, big data, internet of things (IoT) and virtual reality, the digital twin technology has emerged as a promising approach to mitigate a number of the aforementioned healthcare related concerns. Digital Twins refer to the virtual model of a physical object, process or service; such models are able to replicate real-life processes in order to collect real-time data to predict their performance. Further, digital twins have been shown to pace up the clinical trials and simulate studies for a larger population, in much quicker timelines. In fact, a group of researchers engaged in the classification of drug risks using digital twins claim that an extended version of the model could help save up to USD 2.5 billion spent on design and testing new drugs. Several digital twins have been found to be reliable in the diagnosis / treatment of various diseases and are, hence, expected to reduce the excessive cost spent on false medical diagnosis. It is worth mentioning that, on an annual basis, medical errors are expected to lead to a loss of nearly USD 20 billion in the US.  Therefore, digital twins are believed to have the potential to enable significant cost savings. As a result, about 15% of organizations that implement IoT projects have already started using digital twin platforms, while over 60% of the firms are either planning or in the process of establishing digital twin technology in their processes, in the near future.
