Quantum sensors are a class of sensors that offer a particularly high level of sensitivity based on certain quantum phenomena, such as quantum de-coherence and quantum entanglement.  Some of these devices – such as PAR sensors – represent relatively mature technology. Others – gravity sensors and quantum LiDAR – are only beginning to make an impact.  CIR believes, however, that all quantum sensor technology has strong commercial prospects ahead of it and that the business will benefit increasing levels of government and VC funding for quantum technology in general.  There is also emerging technology – such as quantum photonics – that will lead to new kinds of  sensor products being developed in the near future.

In this report:

CIR 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 graphene

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, CIR also notes that some industry giants have taken a stake in the sector including Bosch, Honeywell, HP, Microsemi, ST Microelectronics and Texas Instruments.

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


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

  • Agriculture, horticulture and aquaculture

  • Networked industries (telecom and smart grids)

  • Construction and surveying

  • Financial trading

  • Medical imaging

  • Defense and aerospace

  • Research and development


This report also explores how quantum sensors will fit into the Internet-of-Things

CIR provides highly granular ten-year market forecasts in this report in both revenue and (where possible) volume shipment terms.  Each type of quantum sensor is forecast with a breakout by application, and each end-user sector is forecast by the type of quantum sensors being used.  The report also includes a breakout of the market for quantum sensors by the geographical regions in which they are located.

This report is part of a new series of CIR reports covering the commercial opportunities in the emerging markets for quantum technology products.  Previous reports in this space include industry analysis studies on quantum key encryption, quantum networks and quantum computing.
