Digital twins are virtual copies of physical objects or things that data scientist & IT professionals can use to compute simulations prior to developing and deploying the original devices. Digital Twin is capable of using real time IoT open source databases to optimize performance using Artificial Intelligence & data analytics. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has grabbed the attention of medical practitioners. In the past few years, many companies and leading research laboratories have worked and preferred these technologies for clinical uses and trials. Digital twins help to provide a virtual image of a physical world along with all of its partnerships with collaboration of different technologies like cloud computing IoT, 3D modeling, Machine Learning (ML), Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence. It enables a link between digital and physical objects by collecting real time information about physical objects via sensors. A robust digital twin necessitates a huge amount of data from multiple sources or data center to create a description that is accurate to physical entity. Thus growing demand for big data analysis is a major driving growth factors of the digital twin market.
Moreover, Digital twin technology in healthcare is a virtual model of a person's physical health that can be used to simulate the effects of various treatments and interventions on health. Medical digital twin model is created using data from a variety of sources including electronic health records, imaging studies, and wearable devices. Healthcare digital twins enable healthcare providers to make more informed decisions about optimize treatment plans, patient care and reduce the risk of adverse effects. Many healthcare organizations have started accepting digital twin technology to improve patient outcomes and decrease operational costs. This is boosting digital twin in healthcare market dynamics. Digital twin technology in healthcare is used in different type of applications like clinical trials, drug development, research, clinical operations, supply chain, and patient monitoring. The technology reduces the need for unnecessary diagnostics and treatments in healthcare. Digital twin applications in healthcare are increasing across the globe. This is anticipated to positively impact global digital twin in healthcare industry statistics in the coming years.
Remote patient monitoring works efficiently with telehealth technology when patients need to be observed for specific health issues. Digital twins can be efficiently used in telemedicine and remote patient monitoring to develop a virtual representation of a patient's health requirements. For instance, digital twin can be used for integrated data from different sources, like wearable devices, electronic health records, and others, to provide a more comprehensive view of a patient's health. This could enable healthcare providers to effectively monitor and manage their patients. Thus, rise in telemedicine and remote patient monitoring services is expected to growth of digital twin in healthcare market size in the next few years.
Data analytics & machine learning technologies are used in the healthcare sector to enhance patient care. Data analytics technology is empowered to enable trends in patient data like patterns of a disease or risk factors for a specific disorder. This allows healthcare personnel to exact identification and treat illnesses before they become more serious. For instance, NASA developed pairing technology, developed to digital twin technology, to address the challenge of operating, maintaining, and repairing systems when you aren't physically close to them in the early days of space travel. However, Market growth is impacted by high cost of deployment and highly complicated architecture of digital twins. Utilizing digital twin necessitates substantial investment in cloud computing services, cloud computing infrastructure development, and maintenance. It also requires huge investments in IoT platforms & security management. causing, many of these capital & operational challenges to restrict market growth.
The Digital Twin in Healthcare market has shown a positive impact during the COVID-19 pandemic period. Digital twins have been accepted by many healthcare facilities during and after the pandemic in order to optimize workflows & predict the efficiency of the facilities to deal with the growth of patient inflow. Pharmaceutical industries leveraged the technology to develop vaccines in with respect to manage the rising demand. The digital twins are used to develop live replicas of the physical processes in manufacturing vaccine to improvement of the processes.
Geographically, the global Digital Twin in Healthcare market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America is dominating the largest share of the global Digital Twin in Healthcare market in 2021.
