Reports


Quantum computing:  Applications, Software and End-user Markets

Description

This report examines the major applications for quantum computers.  Questions answered in this report:

  • Which end-user communities will be the first to adopt quantum computing and what is the timeframe in which they will need to migrate from classical supercomputers to quantum computing platforms?

  • What software will be required for early-stage quantum computing and how is that likely to evolve over the coming decade?  What can quantum computing software do today and what will it be able to do in the future?

  • Will quantum computing be delivered via a cloud or from on-premises corporate computers?

This report will also provide a ten-year forecast of revenues generated by all of the key quantum computing applications with breakouts by hardware, software, services, geography and end user types for each application.  In making these forecasts, we are particularly concerned with determining when the major inflection points in the sector will occur and why.

The report will also include profiles of leading quantum software and cloud services firms. Some of the applications considered in this report will include quantum chemistry, advanced search engines, simulation, routing/scheduling, logistics and analytics, cybersecurity and machine learning/AI.  The impact of such issues as user friendliness for programming, and the response to quantum computers from the classical computer community will also be discussed.
