Quantum Computing Market Size & Forecast

The analysts consider the quantum market to include hardware components, QCaaS infrastructure, application software and the value generated by end-users.

Currently, the total quantum computing market size is estimated to be $300 million on the low end to a high of $1.3 billion, according to survey respondents. 

The forecast is that by 2025, the market will grow from about $3.5 billion to $10 billion. Between 2025 and 2030, that estimate increases to $18 billion on the low end to $65 billion at the top end of expectations.

The range of compound annual growth rate — CAGR — of the total quantum industry is between 70 and 80% from 2021 to 2025 and, from 2025 to 2030, as the market matures, CAGR is predicted to be between 39% to 45%.  

The survey also broke down additional quantum computing technologies. Let’s take a look.

Quantum Sensing Market

Quantum sensing includes devices that use a quantum system, quantum properties, or other quantum phenomena to perform a measurement. Examples of devices that use quantum sensors include magnetometers powered by superconducting quantum interference –SQUID — technology and atomic clocks.

The current quantum sensing market estimates are below the $50 million range. 

For the next five years, the forecast suggests annual growth rates at 0 to 15 percent. 

From now until 2025, the CAGR for the market is expected to explode to between 111% and 134% before moderating to growth rates of between 15% and 25%.

By 2030, experts see a market of between $1 billion to $3 billion.

Quantum Security Market

In overall sizing, the survey respondents estimate that the quantum security market is currently set at between $100 million and about a half billion dollars. That market is expected to grow to between $1.5 billion and $4 billion by 2025 and reaches between $4 billion and $8 billion in 2030.

In 2021 to 2025, the panel expects the CAGR to range from 64% to 97% and between 2025 to 2030, the quantum security market is expected to grow at rates between 15% to 22%. 

The survey covers the community’s opinion on the market sizing for quantum technology and was based on data from 40 participants, from a range of backgrounds, as at the end of September 2021.

80% of respondents were not satisfied with their knowledge on the market size for the quantum computing industry.
