Device and material forecasts in display, lighting, photovoltaic, sensors and life science

Quantum dots were discovered in the 80's but commercialization has initially been slow. Interest in quantum dots peaked in the early 2000's when nanotechnology was still a favorite keyword amongst investors. However, a lack of products meant that quantum dots were mostly used in research labs.

In the last three years, quantum dots have been back in the spotlight with the promise to make LCD screens more colorful and more energy efficient. Sony was the first to commercialize a quantum dot LCD TV in 2013 and there are now several OEMs (including Samsung) offering TVs with quantum dots.

As a type of semiconductor, quantum dots exhibit a photoluminescence which is particularly useful for improving colors in LCD. But quantum dots can also be used as electroluminescent materials: quantum dot light emitting diodes (QLED) have been in development for several years and they have a great potential for display applications.

Quantum dots are also emerging as a promising material for other type of devices, most notably optical and infrared sensors.

IDTechEx forecasts that quantum dots will enable a market for devices and components worth over $11bn by 2026. The demand for quantum dots will grow from less than 100 kg today to several tons over the next decade. After some difficult early years, the commercialization of quantum dots is turning into a success story.

This report covers all types of colloidal quantum dots (core, core/shell, cadmium-free, quantum rods, etc...). It gives an assessment of the main applications of quantum dots in displays, lighting, photovoltaic (PV), sensors and life science.

IDTechEx has been tracking the progress of related technologies, such as OLED, thin film photovoltaic, barrier films, and printed electronics for many years. The market analysis and forecasts are therefore based on an extensive knowledge of the industry, with a critical assessment of the real value proposition in each application.


Market forecasts in this report are given until 2026, covering seven market segments:
- LCD components
- QLED panels
- Lighting components
- PV components
- Sensor modules
- Biological marker
- Others

Forecasts are given for sale revenues (in USD), unit shipment as well as quantity of quantum dots (in kg).

The report includes a list of 32 key manufacturers of quantum dots in North America, Europe, and East Asia.

This report also gives a detailed and independent industry analysis of quantum dots for both LCD and QLED displays. This includes an assessment of the various types of LCD components made with quantum dots:
- Films
- Edge optics
- On-chip downconversion

Based on direct interviews with the leading companies in the supply chain, the information in the report can save you months of research and give you the complete picture.
