While using a traditional method of encryption, data is transferred in an encoded form over a public network along with a key to enable the receiver to decode the data. This poses a high risk of losing information about the key, which can result in data loss. Users have started to adopt quantum cryptography to overcome this problem, which uses the quantum key distribution (QKD) method that transfers a special key using light/photons instead of a public channel. Quantum cryptography provides high security and ensures confidentiality of data over a conventional method.
On back of increasing applications across different industry verticals, such as banking and financial services, IT and telecom, and government and defense, the global quantum cryptography market is anticipated to exhibit a high CAGR of 26% during the forecast period (2019- 2029).
