The Global Market for Quantum Dots 2017, 8th edition

The Global Market for Quantum Dots 2017, 8th edition

Since their synthesis over 30 years ago, Quantum Dots (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 $20 billion at the components level by 2027. 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. We also look at how recent regulatory developments on cadmium-free quantum dots have affected the market.

Other notable growth markets include solid-state lighting, sensors and anti-counterfeiting. Further markets that quantum dots will impact include solar and biomedicine. QD solutions have been used in a number of in vivo and in vitro imaging, sensing and labelling techniques.
