2021 Opportunities for Cloud Access to Quantum Computers Report to 2026

DUBLIN, August 06, 2021–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Opportunities for Cloud Access to Quantum Computers: 2021-2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The majority of quantum computer users currently access the quantum computer through a cloud. This has already created a number of opportunities for players in the market. For cloud providers themselves, quantum computers present a new market to attack with specially designed and branded offerings. For quantum computer firms themselves, the presence of clouds as an access option means that there is a mature pathway to customers and the opportunity to do deals with cloud providers that are profitable for all parties.

The revenue from cloud access will increase as the quantum computing business grows in the next few years. However, there are important factors that will shape the opportunity for quantum clouds going forward. For one thing, there are already signs that prices of quantum computers will begin to drop in the next few years to become more affordable to at least large end-users: customer premises computers do not need cloud access. Then there is the question of how today’s classical cloud access will merge into a qubit-transporting quantum Internet.

In this report, the publisher examines the scenarios for the evolution of quantum clouds including what users have to expect from them in terms of speeds and latency. The publisher also analyzes in some depth how they expect quantum clouds to be branded. The report also includes detailed forecasts of cloud access revenues with breakouts by end-user and type of cloud provider. Finally, this report discusses access strategies for the leading quantum computer makers and the direction in which they are headed.
