Quantum computing is an advanced computer technology based on quantum theory and quantum mechanics. It deploys 0 and 1 bits but utilizes every state between 0 and 1, thereby providing excellent speeds. Its increasing applications in algorithms, cryptography, quantum parallelism, quantum simulation, and machine learning are expected to boost its sales. Furthermore, incorporating AI and ML technologies is expected to boost demand. These factors may propel the market growth during the upcoming years.
The quantum computing market size was USD 392.5 million in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 486.1 million in 2021 to USD 3,180.9 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 30.8% during the 2021-2028 period.
Drivers and Restraints
Rising Government Investments and Strategic Alliances to Drive Industry Growth
Governments make extensive investments in quantum computing technologies to boost its adoption. For example, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research provided USD 50.3 million to fund the Ion Trap Computer development in December 2021. This factor may boost the adoption of the computing solution. Furthermore, increasing strategic alliances may fuel the development of better-quality computing solutions. Moreover, rapid digitization and reliance on the Internet of Things (IoT) may boost its sales. These factors may drive the quantum computing market growth.
USD 171.4 Million
North America has seen rapid growth in the market trend owing to the early adoption of advanced technologies and a highly competitive landscape. The penetration of computing services in the region is due to key market players. The readiness of end-users to adopt emerging technologies has also encouraged key providers to develop advanced services.
Europe is expected to have significant growth as start-ups are on the rise. Further, digital government initiatives and regulatory environments and increased usage of cloud-based technology, are also rising in the region that is anticipated to drive the growth of the market and technology.
