Quantum computing could be a USD 29 bn industry by 2021

“Quantum computing isn’t just your classical computer on steroids. It is a completely different computing model,” says Goldman Sachs lead analyst on semiconductors, Toshiya Hari. Quantum computers are now on Goldman Sachs Research’s “Outsiders” list of emerging ecosystems to watch. Hari suggests that quantum computers could be used in logistics and with new developments like autonomous vehicles. In pharmaceuticals, quantum computers can simulate models to determine how a human being would react to a certain medication. We could expect having quantum computers about five to ten years from now, Hari says. By 2021 quantum computing could potentially be a USD 29 bn industry, Goldman Sachs suggests (watch, runtime 02:18).
