Quantum Computing Market Revenue to Cross $1.6 billion by 2035 | Roots Analysis

Published: December 2023

According to a recently published report by Roots Analysis, owing to the technological innovations and increasing adoption rate of quantum computing in drug discovery, the opportunity for service providers in this domain is likely to grow in the coming future

Quantum Computing Industry Overview

The global quantum computing market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 13% from 2023-2035, reaching USD 1.63 billion by 2035.

Quantum computing is a technology that uses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve large and complex problems, offering better insights and expediting the overall drug discovery process. Over the past few years, quantum computing has evolved significantly and created an impact on the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries as it helps to better map interactions between a drug and its target patient and reduce the time and costs associated with the developmental processes. Quantum computing functions in a different way as compared to the approach being used in traditional computers. It uses quantum bits (qubits) which can exist in more than one state (0 and 1) at a single time in order to encode information in bits and achieve quantum superposition. Groups of qubits in superposition can create complex, multidimensional computational spaces where complex problems can be represented in new ways. Once quantum computing is fully developed, it is likely to add significant value from drug discovery to commercialization, due to its ability to optimize logistics and improve the supply chain. With the benefits associated, increasing demand for quantum computing, especially in the biopharmaceutical domain for operations, such as drug discovery and drug manufacturing, is anticipated to create lucrative business opportunities for service providers.

Market Drivers

Several factors are propelling the growth of the quantum computing market. The growing need for a shortening the drug discovery timeline and reducing the overall cost of drug development are some of the primary drivers responsible for the growth of quantum computing market in drug discovery and clinical trials domain. The ability of quantum computing software to predict the outcome has helped in the improvement the overall drug discovery process. With the benefits offered by quantum computing software and hardware, the healthcare industry is also shifting towards the rise in investments in quantum computing, which is also propelling the research and development activities in drug discovery and clinical trials.

Market Restraints

While the quantum computing market is experiencing substantial growth, the adoption is not significant currently. Despite the huge potential, quantum computing is associated with the complexity associated with this domain, currently, there are not many established quantum computing service providers. Since the domain is in its niche stages, the monetary requirement for establishing the necessary infrastructure along with conducting R&D operations is very high, which is restricting its adoption by small and mid-sized drug developers.

Growth Factors

Despite certain limitations, the adoption rate of quantum computing, specifically for drug discovery and 
development purposes is expected to witness substantial growth. Quantum computing has enabled drug developers to address the market demand in a timely manner; therefore, a higher number of industry stakeholders are anticipated to integrate this approach in drug discovery and development processes. The rising demand has encouraged multiple developers to explore the potential of quantum computing for various applications.
