- Future Markets, Inc
Quantum dots are fluorescent nanoparticles of semiconducting material. The color of light that they emit varies with the size of the dot, shifting toward the blue end of the spectrum, as they get smaller. Main applications for quantum dots are LED lighting, electronic displays, bio imaging and solar power. Other applications include security and anti-counterfeiting, “functional decoration” and printing. Prices for quantum dots range from US$3,000 to $10,000 per gram. The market has mainly catered to specialized applications, with a small number of companies selling dots directly to researchers, using the particles to develop their own products or licensing their technologies to partners. A number of companies are upscaling their production to ton quantities in 2013.
This 78 page report maps the current and future market for quantum dots and includes:
- Production volumes for quantum dots to 2020
- End user markets
