The Global Market for Quantum Dots

The Global Market for Quantum Dots

Since their synthesis over 30 years ago, Quantum Dots (QDs) have featured in a range of optoelectronic devices, including 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 market for quantum dots (QD) has witnessed significant growth in the past 12 months and its growth potential is considerable in the next decade. There are now more than 50 companies developing QD materials and applications and QD producer QD Vision recently closed a $22 million funding round on the back of growing demand for wide colour gamut technologies.

A number of quantum dot producers have developed scalable solution production processes and are partnering with multi-national OEMs to use QDs in displays for tablets and high-end TVs. They have collaborated with companies such as Sony, 3M, Amazon, Hisense and ASUS to bring QD-enabled display devices to market in the past 18 months. According to numerous producers, at the the QD material and component level there is a potential $5-$10 billion revenue opportunity in lighting and displays. Penetration in sector such as solar, security, thermoelectrics and magnetics could double these revenues.
