The global market for Quantum Cryptography (QC) is forecast to reach US$2 billion by 2024, driven by the growing need for secure and safe data transmission through networks against the backdrop of increasing number of frauds. Increasing adoption of QC solutions for e-government initiatives, increased focus on making available online options for utility-bill payments across many countries, and increase in online banking activities will drive future growth in the market. Adoption is forecast to be especially high among medium and small-size businesses (SMBs). Although currently far from becoming a mainstream method of securing data networks, continuous technology innovations promise to help QC replace existing security solutions for data hacking over the long-term period. The United States represents the largest market worldwide, supported by increasing number of insider frauds across different types of organizations; increasing frequency and intensity of cyberattacks; and growing prominence of web-based businesses in the BFSI and healthcare sectors. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market led by China. The country is making rapid strides in the field of quantum information and QKD supported by substantial funding from the domestic government.
