Future Growth Potential Powered by Flexible Business Models in Commercial and Public Infrastructure Projects

The purpose of this research is to explore your company’s ‘Growth Zone’ in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry through building information modelling (BIM) and digital twin opportunities. The study highlights market developments such as the evolution of the BIM and digital twin platform, impact of major technologies in the construction industry, important driving and restraining factors that influence market growth, top predictions, latest trends, market measurements at a global and regional level, competitive landscape, key company profiles, and growth opportunities and strategic imperatives for market participants to capitalise on in this high-growth market.

BIM and digital twin is a technology-based software and services market that has evolved from the 2D and 3D design tools, which involved a lot of paperwork. BIM and digital twin, which is one of the modern digital construction tools, enable AEC industry professionals to proficiently plan, design, construct, operate, and manage buildings and infrastructure. The implementation of BIM and digital twin platform for construction projects has been increasing at an accelerated rate in the last 5 years. Both public and private sector stakeholders play a crucial role in bringing awareness and business interests in BIM and digital twin. The main drivers identified for BIM and digital twin adoption are increasing digitalisation in the private sector; increasing penetration of building Internet of Things (IoT); sustainable building techniques; governmental support for BIM implementation; business potential with increasing urbanization; and a higher level of collaboration between stakeholders in construction projects. The global BIM and digital twin market was estimated at $5,225.6 million in 2019 and will grow at a CAGR of 14.5% until 2026.

Research Scope

The publisher has segmented the overall market as BIM and digital twin, based on end-user verticals such as commercial, industrial, residential, and others, and based on end-users such as architects, engineers, contractors, and building owners. The geographies covered in the research are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World.

BIM: The scope of the study includes BIM software and services used for creating virtual 3D static models of a built environment, enabling collaboration and visualisation of design and construction for buildings value chain stakeholders.

Digital Twin: The scope of the study includes the digital twin software and services that help create a dynamic and digital replica of physical building assets, such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, elevators, escalators, fire safety and security systems, manufacturing industries’ equipment, water and wastewater industries’ equipment. The platform combines real-time spatial, occupancy, assets, and environmental data, along with analytics, converting building data into building intelligence, supporting decision making for overall building performance optimisation and building lifecycle management.

Research Highlights

The study captures the market revenues of BIM and digital twin, leveraged from the pre-construction phase to the operational phase of buildings. The study does not cover construction management software exclusively used for project bidding, financial planning, project scheduling, field operations, and quality control. However, if these features are included with the BIM and digital twin software, their revenues are included.

Leading companies identified in the research are Autodesk, Nemetschek Group, Bentley Systems, Trimble, Hexagon, RIB, Glodon, Dassault Systemes, Siemens, Aveva, and Procore. Some of the dynamic and emerging companies identified are Invicara, Willow, YouBIM, Ecodomus, Flair3D, Vertex Systems, Sanveo, and Tetris.
