The market for post-quantum cryptography (PQC) already generates revenue and will expand as quantum computers capable of breaking common public key encryption schemes with Shor's algorithm become more widely deployed. For now, post-quantum cryptography finds its market in critical long-lived data such as plans for aircraft and medical databases that need to survive well into the era of powerful quantum computers. Some IT managers are already aware of the quantum threat and are applying PQC selectively using interim standards and technologies. Many more individuals with purchasing authority are expected to buy into PQC over the next five years as they come to understand quantum threats and quantum computer era gets closer. The addressable market for PQC is can be measured in the billions of units - encryption is hidden everywhere in both hardware and software - and adoption will also accelerate as PQC algorithms are finalized in the NIST selection process.
This report identifies the PQC opportunities that will emerge in how the market roadmap for PQC will evolve over the coming decade. Coverage of this report includes:
Inside Quantum Technology compiled this research report based on interviews with firms active in the PQC and related markets. The report is also based on our ongoing research in the quantum technology business. We believe this report will become required reading for marketing and business executives as well as product managers in the encryption and computing sectors as well as managers in IT-related industries more generally. In addition, this report will provide guidance to the growing number of investors that are taking an interest in the quantum technology space.
