Demand for Sustainability Drives the Process Simulation and Optimization Market

According to new ARC research, the market for process simulation and optimization software is growing because of the need for sustainability. Industrial organizations have to consider many factors at the same time and include carbon intensity in their design and operations to improve their processes and businesses. Successful simulation software companies combine different disciplines and viewpoints to optimize design and operations. By using a good engineering process and working across different teams, industrial manufacturers can use an integrated, "sustainability" approach to engineering design and optimization.

"Market leaders have identified best practices in engineering and are incorporating these into sustainability-enabled technology solutions designed to support asset owners in their efforts to drive a performance engineering lifecycle approach. To achieve the desired model accuracy, plant data is used to calibrate these first principles models to observe plant conditions and performance. Since effective model calibration requires considerable process expertise, AI and machine learning are built into the solutions. AI has the potential to lower the expertise bar needed to model process systems. However, human domain expertise is still needed to create the real-world “guardrails” that make the models work safely and reliably,” according to Peter Reynolds, Contributing Analyst and key author of ARC's Process Simulation and Optimization Software Market Research.
