Top Quantum Technology Startups In India

“If you think you understand quantum mechanics, then you don’t understand quantum mechanics”. 

                                                                                                               – Richard Feynman (An American physicist)

Quantum Technology & Its Use 

Quantum theory says that all matter and energy are made up of tiny particles called quanta. Long-term goals of quantum information technology research include developing methods for controlling and manipulating quantum systems in order to extend information processing beyond the capabilities of the classical world.

The usage of quantum concepts in engineering to solve difficult technicalities in computers, communications, sensing, chemistry, encryption, imaging, and mechanical issues will be quite common in the future. For example, the quantum computer can do things that even the most sophisticated supercomputers cannot.

Future of Quantum Technology 

The adoption of quantum technologies across industries has the potential to add $280-$310 billion in value to the Indian economy by 2030, according to a report by the IT industry body Nasscom. Quince Market Insights estimates that the global market for quantum computing, which had a value of $487.4 million in 2021, will increase to $3.7 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 25.40 %.

Indian Govt Support for Quantum Technology 

The Indian government announced to invest ₹8,000 crores ($1.12 billion) in quantum computing research over five years. The country’s finance minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, said the scheme will boost the research for technology under the National Mission of Quantum Technology and Application project.
