Atomic Clock Markets: A Ten-Year Market Forecast
This report surveys the new business opportunities for atomic clocks in the coming decade. We believe this report is needed because the commercial environment is in the process of profound change. While atomic clocks have been around for decades, new applications are appearing regularly - in telecom, transportation, financial services and elsewhere. One goal of this report is therefore to determine what the use case is for each of these applications when it comes to atomic clocks.
In addition, the report analyzes the commercial implications of technology change in the atomic clock space. Next-generation chip-scale atomic clocks (CSACs) open up some of the new markets for atomic clocks and are likely to prove key enablers for them with better pricing. New materials for atomic clocks are also likely to improve the performance of atomic clocks and lead to new business ideas as to where they can be used. CSACS seem particular well suited for autonomous vehicles and drones. In this report we investigate the revenues that CSACs might generate as possibly the first “mass market” atomic clock.
Within this dynamic environment, we profile key suppliers of atomic clocks such as Microsemi, OroliaGroup, Oscilloquartz, Excelitas, Stanford Research Systems, Chengdu Spaceon Electronics and Zurich instruments among others. We also examine the current sources of finance for atomic clock R&D and productization over the next few years. The report also contains 10-year forecasts for atomic clocks and atomic clock components, with breakouts by technology, application/end user industry and geography.
This report will be essential reading for product, marketing and strategy executives throughout the atomic clock, quantum sensor, PNT, and networking sectors, especially makers and providers of autonomous navigation equipment. It will also be of considerable interest to the growing number of investors in the emerging quantum sensor ecosystem.
