  • In recent years, the emergence of the Metaverse has created a significant impact worldwide. It represents the ultimate application of the latest information and communication technologies, introducing a brand new digital world to our society. With the industry sector being the core engine of our society, it holds the key to unlocking the potential of Metaverse application, particularly in the form of an Industrial Metaverse. The success of the Industrial Metaverse will greatly contribute to the overall development of the Metaverse. Therefore, this paper conducts a survey on the Metaverse to gather evidence of the growing trend towards an Industrial Metaverse. Furthermore, the key technologies required for implementing an Industrial Metaverse are analyzed. Lastly, the opportunities and challenges associated with the Industrial Metaverse are discussed.
