Market Overview

The quantum dots market is expected to register a CAGR of over 61.7%, during the forecast period (2019 - 2024). Cadmium-based quantum dots (QDs) are in trend, which have the advantage of broad UV excitation, narrow emission, bright photoluminescence (PL), and high photostability. Thus, cadmium-based quantum dots have applications in bio-imaging, electroluminescence (EL) and photovoltaic (PV) devices, catalytic hydrogen production, sensors, etc. 

  • Demand for quantum dots in high-quality display devices is a key driver for the market. A widespread practical application of QDs is in quantum dot enhancement film (QDEF) layer, which is used to improve the LED backlighting in LCD televisions. By using quantum dots, one can get rid of all the in-between-colors and generate pure colors, thus, creating a much wider color gamut. Additionally, enhanced energy efficiency can be achieved, for the LCD TV. 
  • Demand for energy-efficient solutions is driving the market. Nanomaterial-based white-light-emitting diodes (LEDs) exhibit a record luminous efficiency of 105 lumens per watt. With further development, the new LEDs can reach efficiencies over 200 lumens per watt, making them a promising energy-efficient lighting source for homes and offices, with the help of quantum dots.
  • The quantum dots may have a potential drawback, when used in biological applications, due to their large physical size, owing to which, they cannot diffuse across cellular membranes. The delivery process may actually be dangerous for the cell, and may even result in its destruction. In other cases, a QD may be toxic for the cell and inappropriate for any biological application, which is a key restraint for the market.

Scope of the Report

The quantum dots market is evolving, with newer technological innovations in the production and application aspects. Quantum dots have various applications in biosensors, such as quantum dot biosensors for diagnostics and quantum dot fluorescent biosensors. A rise in the market growth has been observed, owing to the applications of quantum dots in composites, solar cells, medical devices, displays, etc.

Key Market Trends

LED Penetration to Enhance the Market Growth

With increasing led penetration in the lighting market, the quantum dots market is growing, due to the application of quantum dots in manufacturing high-efficiency and color-saturated displays. It is increasingly becoming popular in the consumer electronics segment owing to QDs’ applications in appliances, such as LED TVs, which absorb and emit light in pure colors, as much as four times brighter than any other display technology in the world.

In agriculture, it is possible to produce light-converting coatings, which is expected to increase yield and the speed of ripening of fruit plants in greenhouses. Dutch farmers are increasingly adopting indoor farming, and they are able to grow more crops, faster, and in a smaller space, with advanced greenhouses using LED lights.

Colloidal QD LED, with quantum and power conversion efficiencies in the infrared range, has proven that it can also be integrated in inorganic solar cells, and this may lead to even higher efficiencies. Additionally, such factors have triggered a vast number of applications for QDs, including surveillance, night vision, environmental monitoring, and spectroscopy.

Additionally, significant drop in light output exhibited by green LEDs has often been the cause of efficiency problems and high costs in customer applications, such as fitness trackers. Thus, in order to resolve these issues, in May 2018, Osram Licht AG increased the efficiency of its green LEDs by 40%.

Asia-Pacific to Witness a Significant Growth Rate

The Asia-Pacific quantum dots market is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region can be attributed to the inclination of consumers toward the adoption of technologically advanced products, and the involvement of various universities and organizations in R&D of the QD technology, specifically in the display market. 

Surging demand from the optoelectronics and solar energy applications is also the key growth factor for the market in this region. Unique optical properties, such as high quantum yield, emission tenability, narrow emission band, and optical stability, are making quantum dots the preferred material for the display and lighting solutions.

In the coming years, there is likely to be an increase in demand for QD displays in Asia-Pacific, especially in China, which is expected to drive the quantum dots market. Rising expenditures of the TV, monitor, and smartphone industries, with the introduction of new products, is increasing the adoption of QD displays, which may enhance the growth of the quantum dots market.
