Global Market for Quantum Dots 2018-2030

Global Market for Quantum Dots 2018-2030

Quantum Dots (QDs) are THE nanotechnology success story to date. Future Markets, Inc. has been tracking the global market for quantum dots for over a decade and watched as they have moved from basic research to a multi-billion dollar component market.

Since their synthesis over 30 years ago, QDs have featured in a range of optoelectronic devices, including TVs and displays, light-emitting devices (LEDs), solar cells, photodiodes, thermoelectrics, photoconductors and field-effect transistors, while QD solutions have been used in a number of in vivo and in vitro imaging, sensing and labelling techniques.

The global quantum dots (QD) market will be potentially valued at more than $27.5 billion at the components level by 2030. The optoelectronics market represents the vast majority of this figure, chiefly High Definition TVs-QLED-TVs. Most major consumer electronics companies ship QLED TVs including Samsung, Sony, Philips, Sharp, Hisense, TCL and Vizio. Samsung is the market leader and introduced several new models in 2017. Quantum Dot Colour Filter and true quantum dot film technology will be impacting the HD-TV market in the next 12 months. Other notable growth markets include solar windows, lighting, sensors and anti-counterfeiting.
