Quantum dots are nanocrystals made from semiconductor materials which are unique material slowly penetrating different fields in optoelectronics and photovoltaics. The global quantum dots market is expected to increase from just around $235m in 2013 to around $2.85bn by 2018. Quantum dots have an inverse relation with respect to their size and band gap and this result in their key optical property of change in color. As the dot size decreases, the color of light emitted changes from red to blue. Quantum dots though commercialized in almost areas but the products are yet to be released in the market due to the high costs and mass production limitations. This is slowly expected to change and QD based products are expected to reach the market soon.
This report focuses on major applications of QD like solid state lighting, displays and solar cells because all 3 markets are mature segments and further growth can occur from a disruptive technology only. QD is the technology which can chapter the next growth phase of all three segments in the opinion of IndustryARC.
