Market Overview

Quantum Sensors Markets, 2018 and Beyond - Products and Technology Evolution & Market and Application Evolution for Quantum Sensors -


The "Quantum
Sensors Markets, 2018 and Beyond"
report has been added to's

The report forecasts future technology evolution in the quantum sensors
business and considers it from both the perspective of the conventional
sensor industry and the budding quantum technology sector. Quantum
sensors considered in this report include atomic clocks, single-photon
detectors, PAR sensors, quantum LiDAR and quantum radar, gravity
sensors, atomic interferometers, magnetometers, quantum imaging devices,
spin-qubit-based sensors, and quantum rotation sensors. We also take a
look at materials used for quantum sensors, especially diamond and

We identify the primary opportunities in the quantum sensor space,
exploring the commercial future of the technology and the firms that are
supplying it.

While these firms include many pure play sensor firms, the researcher
also notes that some industry giants have taken a stake in the sector
including Bosch, Honeywell, HP, Microsemi, ST Microelectronics and Texas

We examine in which end-user markets there will be the most
significant opportunities including:

  • Transportation (Autonomous vehicles, navigation, GPS and air traffic
