Overview

OTS and ITS Market Set for Market Expansion Path
The Operator Training Simulator (OTS) and Immersive Training Simulator (ITS) software and services market is expanding. The retiring workforce, lack of experienced operators, and manufacturing expansion in emerging markets are major drivers for both OTS and ITS.

These solutions are designed to train process operators in process manufacturing plants and other industrial plants quickly and effectively. The study includes information about software technologies, tools, and methodologies, including both high-fidelity solutions that replicate plant operations exactly and generic process- or application-specific simulators. Operator training simulation systems considered in the study include 2D, 3D, generic high-fidelity, dynamic high-fidelity, and immersive virtual reality-type solutions.

Many experienced operators and industrial workers are retiring, workers in emerging countries change jobs every couple of years, and knowledge transfer concerns are some of the factors driving the OTS and ITS market. Users need training that helps them learn quickly and safely. Operators and other workers need to feel confident that they can respond to abnormal conditions and avert potential disasters. Suppliers are responding with dynamic high-fidelity solutions that include 2D, 3D, and immersive reality training. In addition, traditional training simulators are being expanded to train all types of plant workers. Console training simulators are being linked to field training simulators using newer technologies such as immersive virtual reality and mobile applications.
