Projected increased investment in cybersecurity to boost the growth of the Quantum Cryptography Market


The global Quantum Cryptography Market is estimated to be valued at US$125.32 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 19% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
The Quantum Cryptography Market involves technologies focused on utilizing the principles of quantum mechanics to secure communications. Quantum cryptography  Market leverages quantum properties like quantum entanglement and superposition to encrypt messages in a way that is able to detect any eavesdropping or message modification during transit. The technologies ensure confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted through public network channels. Quantum cryptography provides the strongest possible encryption and detects any tampering or interception of encrypted quantum signals. This makes it a vital cybersecurity solution for highly sensitive commercial and government communications.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the Quantum Cryptography Market is growing investment from both private and public entities to advance quantum cryptography technologies. There is a continuous push to strengthen cyber defense mechanisms against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. Quantum cryptography promises theoretically unbreakable security, which is driving increased R&D funding particularly for applications in defense, banking/finance and critical infrastructure protection. For instance, the U.S. government through the National Quantum Initiative Act committed over $1.2 billion towards quantum information research including for post-quantum cryptography. This is expected to boost development of viable commercial quantum cryptography solutions over the forecast period.
