Will Quantum Supply Chains Fall Victim to Geopolitics?
Concerns over dual-use applications of quantum technologies are motivating countries to limit their proliferation. In November 2021, the United States added eight Chinese quantum technology companies to the Department of Commerce’s Entity List. China has also introduced similar restrictions, with its Export Control Law enacted in 2020 restricting companies from exporting quantum technology, particularly for cryptography applications where China’s national efforts have been particularly focused. Such regulatory actions prompt the question of whether quantum technology supply chains will be shaped by the type of geopolitical dynamics affecting semiconductor chips, which in recent times have become a centrepiece of the technological rivalry between China and the United States.
