Post-Quantum Cryptography: A Ten-Year Market and Technology Forecast, 2018-2028 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

November 28, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 28, 2018--The “Post-Quantum Cryptography: A Ten-Year Market and Technology Forecast” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report identifies the PQC opportunities that will emerge in how the market roadmap for PQC will evolve over the coming decade.

The market for post-quantum cryptography (PQC) already generates revenue and will expand as quantum computers capable of breaking common public key encryption schemes with Shor’s algorithm become more widely deployed. For now, post-quantum cryptography finds its market in critical long-lived data such as plans for aircraft and medical databases that need to survive well into the era of powerful quantum computers.

Some IT managers are already aware of the quantum threat and are applying PQC selectively using interim standards and technologies. Many more individuals with purchasing authority are expected to buy into PQC over the next five years as they come to understand quantum threats and quantum computer era gets closer. The addressable market for PQC is can be measured in the billions of units - encryption is hidden everywhere in both hardware and software - and adoption will also accelerate as PQC algorithms are finalized in the NIST selection process.
