Quantum sensors (QS) are advanced technology that improves the accuracy of navigation, measurement, and interaction of changing motion and electric and magnetic fields across various verticals. Additionally, these sensors are highly sensitive and used in multiple applications of renewable energy, nuclear energy, and geothermal energy. Furthermore, these sensors are incorporated with various power plants to derive energy output which is expected to drive market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the growth of the market. Negligible operations in various end-use industries requiring sensors to improve the overall product performance, such as automotive, military, and defense, were temporarily shut down owing to the government's stringent rule. Furthermore, the lack of raw materials, skilled labor, and resources shortage led to supply chain disruption hampering the market growth.

However, researchers have developed a tool based on nitrogen-vacancy centers in nanodiamonds incorporated with quantum sensors to translate the presence of SARS-CoV-2, which improved the diagnostic methods during the pandemic years. Due to their superior sensitivity, Quantum sensors have enhanced detection methods, which influenced the market growth.

Though the demand for quantum sensors for complex applications is rising, the higher installation cost hampers the market growth, which results in a consumer shift towards low-cost alternatives. In addition, there is a lack of awareness among individuals about the uses and benefits of QS, which is likely to restrain market growth.
