Digital twins are becoming a standard for architects and building engineers across the construction spectrum. Digital Twins are 3D virtual replicas of physical buildings and infrastructure connected to the data in and around them, and are widely used to optimize their design, construction, and performance over the entire lifecycle. Building information modeling, otherwise known as BIM, provides much of the data, connecting the design to the future building and its ongoing maintenance.
One popular digital twin software system, SmartWorldPro from Cityzenith, is now being updated with the Beta release of SmartWorldPro2, an operational management tool for architects, contractors, and asset managers around the world. Cityzenith sees the digital twin market, worth $3.8 billion worldwide in 2019, growing by 45.4% annually to $35 billion by 2025.
