COVID-19 impact analysis
The COVID-19 epidemic outbreak has disrupted different industries, including the quantum computing space. Demand for quantum computing software, machine learning, cloud-based quantum computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and quantum computer-as-a-services has been increasing during lockdowns. This is fueling demand for quantum computing software and services.
During the outbreak, manufacturing as well as design and development of quantum computing devices declined by nearly 5%-7% in Q3-Q4 2020, due to falling production across East Asian and North America factories, as both regions are the world’s major quantum computing device manufacturers and suppliers. However, according to report, production has become pretty stable in the first half of 2021 with demand gaining traction again.
Large quantum-computing enterprises in North America, Europe, Canada, China, Australia, India, and Russia are investing in qubit research, while also giving researchers access to cloud-based and commercial cloud services. Over, the market for quantum computing is projected to grow faster from Q3-Q4 2021 onwards.
