Qt Group operates in the global growth market for software development tools, approximated to be worth 10 billion USD in 2016. Our products, based on Qt technology, are used for developing efficient, interactive and multi-platform interfaces and applications. These can range from in-vehicle infotainment systems to in-flight entertainment systems, printer touchscreens or industrial robots.

Qt is uniquely positioned to benefit from the rise of Internet of Things (IoT). As more and more objects become connected, the demand for embedded systems is set to grow. And with connections come new user interfaces and ways of adding value to the end-user.

Qt technology is used used by over a million programmers globally, and in over 70 different industries, millions of devices and applications – such as consumer electronics, vehicles, airplanes and industrial automation applications.

Qt software development tools are built using open source code, which means that they can be licensed under both commercial and open source licenses. Our large open source developer community plays an important part in the development of Qt technology, and supports our research and product development unit.
