Last week, on March 18, 2024, Nvidia ($NVDA US) announced the launch of the Nvidia Quantum Cloud service for researchers and developers to test out their quantum-computing software across scientific domains such as chemistry, biology, and material science.

“NVIDIA Quantum Cloud breaks down the barriers to exploring this transformative technology and lets every scientist in the world harness the power of quantum computing and bring their ideas closer to reality”, said Tim Costa, director of HPC and quantum computing at NVIDIA [Nvidia Press Release, March 18, 2024].

As quantum computing enablers, such as Nvidia, shift tools to adopters, the growing ecosystem of global players will emerge to develop and commercialize quantum technologies. According to McKinsey & Company [The Quantum Technology Monitor, April 2023], the potential quantum technology market size will reach USD 106 billion by 2040.
