Market Dynamics

Key Market Drivers

  • The expansion of this industry is projected to be fuelled by constant advancements in atomic clocks: The market has been divided into atomic clocks, magnetic sensors, gravity sensors, rotation sensors, imaging sensors, and temperature sensors based on sensor types. The atomic clocks category now dominates the market, and this is projected to continue in the North American region during the forecast period. As atomic clock manufacturers invest more in research to build ultra-low-power capacity for special activities such as small satellites, demand for Quantum Sensors is projected to rise in the region.
  • Growth is expected due to the defence segment: Defence, oil & gas, medical & healthcare, agricultural, transportation, construction, technology & communications, and others are the applications that make up the market. In terms of revenue generation, the defence sector has a sizable market share. Quantum sensors are being used in crucial sectors such as precise positioning and submarine detection across oceans, which is driving up demand for the sensors in the defence industry. As a result, the segment's growth is accelerating and the trend is expected to remain the same during the forecast period in the North American Region.

Key Market Restraints

  • High Cost of Deployment: The expanding popularity of quantum sensors is increasing their use in a variety of industries, but the high costs of deployment may limit the market's growth throughout the projected period. End-user industries will need to invest a lot of money upfront to integrate such sensors into packages, as well as self-sufficient riding or autonomous driving, advanced imaging technologies for short and long routes, clinical progress, and the ability to map the subterranean in detail. The high costs of putting these structures in place are due to improper setup, design, and manufacture and hence this can be a potential restraint in the North American market growth.

Key Market Opportunities

  • Increased Investment in Space Communication to provide lucrative opportunities: The space sector finds a wide range of applications for quantum sensors in geomapping, communication and navigation channels, and other key applications, thanks to the highly advanced quantum sensors and the applications they cater to. There has been a considerable increase in spending on the development and use of quantum sensors as a result of these applications and the latest space technology. The mentioned quantum sensor market is largely reliant on quantum technology breakthroughs and other comparable dynamics. The growing need for space communication applications, as well as increased investment in them, is likely to generate profitable prospects for North American key players.

Regional Analysis

By 2030, the North America Quantum Sensors Market is estimated to be worth USD 233.60 million, increasing at a CAGR of 8.20% over the forecast period (2022–2030). The market for quantum sensors is expected to grow rapidly as a result of continuous research and implementation of new technologies such as quantum imaging, quantum simulation, and quantum sensing in North America.

In 2020, the US market was valued at $74.7 billion dollars. Quantum sensor manufacturers and service providers are primarily responsible for the high growth, as they invest more in quantum technology and quantum entanglement of the electromagnetic field for technological developments in the United States. Quantum sensors are in high demand in the medical business across North America, which presents new market growth prospects for quantum sensor manufacturers.

The new generation of quantum sensors will be used in a variety of areas that are important to Canadians, including the environment, natural resources, health care, and defence. Investing in quantum sensing would help Canada maintain its global leadership position in quantum sciences and establish the framework for a future high-tech industry based on quantum technology and hence the demand is expected to grow during the forecast period.

Mexico is the world's sixth-largest passenger vehicle producer, with around three million automobiles produced each year. As 89% of Mexican vehicles are exported, with 80% going to the United States, there is a lot of demand and opportunity for Quantum Sensors in the automotive industry in Mexico.

Segmental Analysis

The North America quantum sensors market is categorised by product and application, with atomic clocks, magnetic sensors, and PAR quantum sensors making up the by-product segmentation. The magnetic sensors category now dominates the region’s market, with a significant growth rate. Magnetic sensors are mostly employed in military and security applications such as ferromagnetic substance detection, discrimination, and identification, navigation, position monitoring, and antitheft systems.

The increased demand for quantum sensors and associated technology is due to an upward trend in the commercialization of quantum sensors for military and defence applications, as well as increased government funding in many developing worldwide locations. Because the magnetic field is invisible and penetrates most objects, magnetic sensors are essential for many security applications.

At the moment, traditional magnetic sensors such as fluxgates, induction coils, and resonance magnetometers are being supplemented with new sensor types such as AMR (Anisotropic Magneto Resistors), GMR (massive Magneto-Resistance), SDT (Spin-dependent Tunnelling), and GSR (big Magneto-Impedance). Atomic clocks are the second most popular segmentation by-product, with a significant market share. Due to the reliance on sensors for technological know-how assessments and spacecraft operation, atomic clocks find substantial uses in space exploration activities and related investigations.

Quantum phenomena are being exploited more and more as sensing precisions improve, as it is projected that sensors using quantum dwellings would give new and significantly improved capabilities. For example, NASA's Deep Space Atomic Clock, which was launched in 2019, is an important step toward allowing spacecraft to safely navigate in deep space without relying on a time-consuming method to obtain directions from Earth. To obtain destiny navigation and radio technologies, the Deep Space Atomic Clock will enable a move to a more green, adaptable, and scalable clock structure.

The PAR quantum sensors are the third product segment. The magnitude of photo-synthetically active radiation (PAR) utilised by agricultural specialists is well-known for quantum (PAR) sensors. Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF) size over plant canopies in outdoor situations, greenhouses, and growth chambers is one of the standard quantum sensor packages.

Plant shape and structure, as well as reproduction, are all influenced by light, which is a crucial component of photosynthesis. The market analysed is seeing increased demand for plant and agricultural research, as well as detecting energetic photosynthetic radiation for agriculture and industrial horticulture programmes.

The aforementioned market is categorised by application based on the use of quantum sensors in the military & defence, and automotive industries. Military and defence are currently the most popular quantum sensor programmes, owing to the high pace of investment in quantum technology research by commercial and government naval and defence companies. Quantum technology has piqued the interest of governments in a number of wealthy countries in recent years, resulting in an increase in the commercialization of quantum sensors, mostly for military and security applications.

Increased investment in digital conflict (EW) technology by the army and defence companies is a primary driver of the examined segment's growth. Many advanced army enterprises discovered quantum technologies in the previous decade, particularly for improving communications, precise navigation, and precision timing. The automotive industry is the second most important section of the quantum sensors market.
