Why Industrial Manufacturing Will Save The Metaverse From Extinction

IDC researchers predicted that by 2025, 20% of Global 2000 manufacturers will include the industrial Metaverse in their digital transformation roadmap to address advanced simulation, cross-domain collaboration, and safety.

While the initial Metaverse hype in the marketplace has settled down, industrial manufacturers are scouting around to see how immersive experiences from AR and VR could deliver practical value to the organization.

“Manufacturers aren’t specifically asking about Metaverse, but they are looking at advanced technologies to replicate real-world experiences,” said Ralf Heindoerfer, Product Owner of Mixed Reality Solutions at SAP. “Leaders in some industrial sectors are realizing that components of the Metaverse, such as VR and AR, can allow employees to collaborate for more informed decisions and greater efficiencies. This extends from product design to factory line production and quality control, warehouse delivery logistics and transportation, and maintenance.”

Immersive experiences are valuable to manufacturers that require collaboration between many workers to produce complex items like automotive and aerospace parts, and other industrial machinery. In fact, construction spend for manufacturing facilities in the US is booming, having doubled since the end of 2021. VR technology could help architects and others create higher performance factory floor layouts for these greenfield facilities, arranging machines and the people that interact with them for greatest productivity.
