In 2018, the software segment accounted for over 50% of the market share and is anticipated to grow at a steady pace over the forecast timeline. Immersive simulation software will witness high growth owing to benefits such as increased efficiency, decreased errors, and reduction in cost maintenance of the systems. The software connects all operators and plant personnel in a 3D realistic virtual learning environment, enhancing the interactivity with various machines, parts, and processes. Over the coming years, the market will witness an increasing adoption of immersive simulation technology for procedural training, safety scenario practice, operator familiarization, maintenance planning, knowledge capture, and team training. The implementation of the technology aids in reducing the costs and time-to-value on the job training, by around 30-40 percent, contributing to the maintenance budget savings.

Operator Training Simulator Market, By Simulation Environment

In 2018, console training simulators accounted for a major part of the operator training simulator market share. These simulators replicate the control room and Distributed Control Systems (DCS) and help the staff to have in-depth knowledge about the process and automation control. The solutions provide safe & efficient operations, minimizing risks and increasing production performance. Moreover, they help operators to make effective decisions in emergency scenarios, ensuring more stability and lowering the risks of accidents. The rise in industrial automation and process control requires operators to have appropriate knowledge of operating a plant safely and proficiently. The oil & gas industry is equipped with different machinery working on various platforms, making it difficult for new staff to operate these heavy machines, forcing plant owners to provide console operator training to users to interact with machinery in the field. These factors are will drive the market over the coming years.

Operator Training Simulator Market, By Application

Increasing demand for effective training modules in the aerospace & defense sector to reduce the number of accidents occurring due to operators’ fault will drive market growth. The sector is anticipated to witness a growth of around 20% from 2018 to 2025. The sector is incorporating the technology to provide flight training to pilots. Full Flight Simulators (FFS) are being used for this purpose, providing motion & visual capabilities to train professional pilots regarding the flight controls characteristics, aerodynamics, and ground handling controls of the aircraft. The pilots are required to clear simulation tests to fly the actual airplanes. Applications of simulator tools in the defense sector will allow the military personnel to be trained on war and combat situations by learning different defense tactics. Meggitt Training Systems developed FATS 100MIL simulator model, a small arms trainer that is ideal for transportation between remote locations.
