Quantum Computers: What Are They and When Will They Create Commercial Value?

In the last decade, the number of companies actively developing quantum computer hardware has quadrupled. In 2022 multiple funding rounds surpassing US$100 million have been closed, and the transition from lab-based toys to commercial products has begun. Competition is building not only between different companies but between quantum computing technologies. Overall, IDTechEx forecasts that over 3000 quantum computers will be installed by 2043. But how is the industry likely to evolve shorter term, and what are the opportunities for technological innovation in this sector?
To answer these questions this webinar will cover:
  • What is quantum computing and what is the state of the industry?
  • What are the competing quantum computing technologies, how do they work and what are the opportunities and challenges?
  • How can the commercial potential of quantum computer hardware be assessed?
  • How will the market evolve both short, medium, and long term - and when are the key inflection points for commercial value creation?
More details and twenty-year market forecasts can be found in IDTechEx's brand new comprehensive report "Quantum Computing 2023-2043". This includes individual forecast lines for eight different technology categories including superconducting, photonic, trapped-ion, neutral atom, silicon spin, topological, diamond defect, and annealers. There are also 60-year projections covering meta-trends for quantum computer adoption, going beyond the horizon of a realized versatile computer and looking ahead to mass-market adoption.
