The metaverse has been the topic of talk, especially in the tech world since the rebranding of Facebook to Metaverse. Over the last few months, metaverse has been gaining momentum and some tech giants have started experimenting with metaverse. But apart from some tech giants, most managers and executives think about what benefits metaverse can bring into their industry. In this blog, we are going to discuss how metaverse can transform the industrial sector. But before that, let’s look into what metaverse is.
What is Metaverse?
In simple words, metaverse can be defined as a new form of communication where people can meet up and interact with each other in a virtual environment using their digital avatars. Industrial metaverse (there is only one metaverse, just a name for the companies in the industrial sector to understand) on the other hand is about creating simulating experiences and digital twins of real-world objects in the virtual world before working on them for real in the physical world. The industrial metaverse has the ability and power to transform how industries now create, build, and interact with their physical assets.
Many experts say that metaverse is the future. This data from Bloomberg Intelligence back it. According to Bloomberg Intelligence, the value of metaverse is expected to reach $2.5 trillion by 2030.
Possibilities of Metaverse in the Industrial Sector
• Better Simulation
Metaverse enables organizations in various industry verticals to render and simulate 3D prototypes of complicated real-world objects to avoid unnecessary costs involved in labor, overheads, and inventory.
• Better Collaboration
The pandemic has made most companies leverage the benefits of remote collaboration like improvements in productivity, efficiency, and more. But now with metaverse-powered collaboration, companies can benefit more than just the above and can even conduct their processes better than before.
Metaverse enables people at different places to enter into a shared virtual space using their digital avatars and interact with 3D prototypes of products in real-time. From conducting workforce training remotely in virtual environments to teams from different physical locations interconnected via a virtual environment, metaverse makes decision making, onboarding, training, and development process easier.
The possibilities listed here are just the tip of the endless possibilities of metaverse that companies in the industrial sectors can leverage. The one thing you can do is to experiment with new ideas and create even better ones as the metaverse evolves. Let’s embrace the metaverse and close the loop between physical and digital.
