QIC was an international trade association, incorporated in 1987, to encourage and promote the widespread use of quarter-inch tape cartridge technology. One hundred companies around the world were Members or Associates of QIC during its active years. The group became inactive in 1998 after more than 15 million QIC-compatible drives had been installed.

Most of the 15 million QIC tape drives in use worldwide were installed in business environments. QIC tape automation solutions enabled capacities well into the terabyte range, providing the hardware data compression and read-write features essential to network backup.
