I think quantum computing has a great future. A lot of research and experiments is being done. There is huge investments from major tech companies (IBM, Google, Atos, Microsoft Azure services etc) in quantum computing. As of the possible applications, well, we will discover more and more with time.
It’s like when classical computers first appeared, nobody imagined the extend of their application. Quantum computers are at their infancy and am excited to see what the future holds.
A few centuries ago, alchemists were trying for an Elixir of Life. They had to give up.
A few centuries ago, technocrats were trying for a Perpetual Motion Machine. They had to give up (after discovering the Law of Conservation of Energy).
Since 1950, energy scientists and engineers have been trying for a Controlled Thermonuclear Fusion Reactor. There is no proof so far that it is not possible. The race continues.
Since 1990 or so, computer scientists and engineers have been trying for a Quantum Computer. There is no proof so far that it is not possible. The race continues.
Quantum Computing has a bright future.
Even if we do not get a reliable quantum computer within a few decades, Quantum Computing Algorithms are a piece of human ingenuity. They have a value, with or without a Quantum Computer.

There is no doubt, it's a cool technology. When comes to economic, application and support perspective, we still have a long way to go even with current technologies growth pace is fast nowadays. Just have to keep an eyes on it.
