Quantum Computing Market Dynamics

Driver: Rising investments in quantum computing technology

The ecosystem surrounding quantum computing is expanding rapidly. This technology has applications in fields such as geophysics, medical imaging, and navigation systems. Governments of countries like the US, Australia, and the European Union are working on quantum computing initiatives and investment. For instance, in January 2023, the government of Canada announced a plan to invest ~USD 355 million in initiatives to develop quantum talent, advance quantum technology applications, and commercialize quantum computing.

Restraint: Stability and error correction issues

Quantum computers hold immense potential, but they face a major hurdle: keeping the information they process stable. Unlike classical bits in traditional computers, which are either 0 or 1, qubits, the building blocks of quantum computers, exist in a superposition of both states simultaneously. This fragility makes them prone to errors from environmental noise and imperfections in the hardware.

Opportunity: Technological advancement in quantum computing technology

Quantum computing transforms the way information is stored and processed. It significantly improves the efficiency of algorithms. The quantum computing ecosystem is evolving fast, contributing to the development of fifth-generation computers. Research related to quantum computing is evolving owing to ongoing innovations in traditional computing. This, in turn, has led to the transition of the classical computing industry to simulating quantum techniques. Quantum computers can potentially decipher obstacles that limit the power of classical computers, thereby solving complex problems related to the encryption and optimization of data in seconds that classical computers take a significantly long time to attempt. Using qubits in quantum computers enables them to have superposition and entanglement properties. Superimposing multiple qubits on each other raises quantum computers’ processing power. With this processing power, quantum computers can solve complex problems that classical computers fail to resolve.

Challenge: Shortage of quantum computing technology skilled working professional

Quantum computing is a relatively new and technical field that requires a specific understanding of quantum mechanics, as well as expertise in computer science and mathematics. The interdisciplinary nature of quantum computing means that professionals needs to have quantam programming, machine learning among others, which can take time to develop.

Systems segment to account for highest CAGR of the quantum computing market during the forecast period

Continuous investments in the development of quantum computing technology are expected to push the boundaries of this technology to address the real-world problems customers face. Moreover, companies such as IBM and Rigetti Computing have developed quantum computing systems, which are offered as a service to customers.

Cloud segment to register the highest market size during the forecast period

The cloud segment is projected to account for a larger share of the quantum computing market than the on-premises segment from 2024 to 2029. Cloud quantum computing is a type of quantum computing technology that uses cloud computing to provide access to quantum processors and other quantum computing resources. The enterprises that carry out data processing within their facilities have shifted a significant portion of their IT load to specialized cloud services such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud over the past decade. A few enterprises are using the hybrid cloud that uses private computer resources belonging to enterprises and public cloud-based services.

The machine learning  segment will have the highest CAGR in the quantum computing market during the forecast period

Quantum computing and machine learning are two closely related fields of research. Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize the way we process data, and machine learning is a powerful tool for using that data. By combining the two, researchers hope to develop new algorithms that can take advantage of the unique properties of quantum computing to solve difficult problems faster and more efficiently.

Asia Pacific to hold the largest share of the quantum computing market during the forecast period

Demand for high-performance computing is growing, there is an increase in the creation of new technologies and applications, R&D spending is increasing, and industry and academic institutions are collaborating more frequently. The Asia-Pacific region’s significant growth factors for quantum computing include these developments.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the size of the quantum computing market. Exhaustive secondary research has been done to collect information on the market, peer market, and parent market. Validation of these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain through primary research has been the next step. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been employed to estimate the global market size. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation have been used to estimate the market sizes of segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

Secondary sources for this research study include corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements), trade, business, and professional associations, white papers, certified publications, articles from recognized authors, directories, and databases. Secondary data was collected and analysed to determine the overall market size, further validated by primary research.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research was conducted after understanding and analysing the quantum computing market scenario through the secondary research process. Several primary interviews were conducted with key opinion leaders from the demand- and supply-side vendors across four major regions—North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and RoW (including the Middle East, Africa, and South America). After interacting with industry experts, brief sessions were conducted with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primary. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the overall market size-using the market size estimation processes explained above-the market has been split into several segments and subsegments. To complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics of each market segment and subsegment, data triangulation, and market breakdown procedures have been employed, wherever applicable. The data has been triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides.

Market Definition

Quantum computing involves phenomena such as quantum entanglement and quantum mechanics superposition that are used by quantum computers for their enhanced computing power. The improved computing power of quantum computers can be attributed to how data is represented. Conventional computers use bits that can either be 1s or 0s, while quantum computers use qubits (quantum bits), which can be both 0s and 1s simultaneously due to superposition. Quantum computing devices or quantum computers operate with nanoscale components at low temperatures, and they have the potential to address some of the most challenging computational problems.
