The Global Market for Quantum Dots Should Total over $3.4 Billion by 2021, Increasing at a CAGR of 41.3% From 2016 to 2021

The global market for quantum dots (QDs) totaled $610.0 million revenue in 2016. The market should total over $3.4 billion by 2021, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 41.3% from 2016 to 2021.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the global markets for quantum dots and their future commercial prospects.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015, estimates for 2016, and projections of CAGRs through 2021.
  • Information especially valuable to individuals and organizations seeking more insight into the current status of QDs, their stand-alone capabilities within the spectrum of nanomaterials,
  • as well as to nanomaterials manufacturers, investors seeking near-term commercialization opportunities, and technologists confronted with nanomaterial device integration issues.
  • Insight into how to exploit the use of quantum dots in the biological, biomedical, electronics, energy, optics, optoelectronics, and security applications industries.
  • Evaluation of key and relevant patents.
  • Profiles of major players in the industry.

Since their parallel discovery in Russia and the U.S. over 30 years ago, SC QDs, until quite recently, have resided exclusively in the domain of solid-state physics, where they have been fabricated using expensive and sophisticated molecular beam epitaxy or chemical vapor deposition equipment.

However, in a relatively short time frame, this situation has changed dramatically with the recent commercial availability of CQDs synthesized by less expensive wet-chemical processes. Practically, the availability of QDs in a colloidally dispersed form has helped demystify these somewhat esoteric materials. Most importantly, CQDs now provide access to a much broader industrial audience, which promises to further widen their potential market exploitation.

Current and future applications of QDs impact a broad range of industrial markets. These include, for example: biology and biomedicine; computing and memory; electronics and displays; optoelectronic devices such as LEDs, lighting and lasers; optical components in telecommunications and image sensors; and security applications such as covert identification tagging or biowarfare detection sensors.

This report probes in considerable depth the early pioneers and champions in this field in industry, government and academic laboratories. The most active organizations, promising technical applications and developments realizable within the next five years, will all be highlighted.

Contributions Of The Study And Target Audience:

Dots: Technologies and Commercial Prospects, published in April 2014.

The most significant revisions in the new edition include:

  • An extensive updated patent analysis (2014 through 2015).
  • An in-depth assessment of the unfolding commercial markets.
  • Progress in the synthesis and commercial scale-up by QD producers.
  • Interviews with leading producers.
  • Updated company profiles of the producers and end users dictating market
  • development.
  • Updated five-year market projection analysis of the emerging QD market.

This is the fifth exclusive report to focus on QD nanomaterials from the perspective of their technology, applications and future business prospects. Thus, this up-to-date, technical assessment and business analysis should prove an especially valuable resource to individuals and organizations seeking more insight into the current status of QDs, their stand-alone capabilities within the spectrum of nanomaterials and time-to-market commercial development. The report’s comprehensive technical and business assessment on the current status of the QD-based industry should prove informative to nanomaterials manufacturers, investors seeking near-term commercialization opportunities, technologists confronted with nanomaterial device integration issues and companies specifically interested in exploiting QDs in biological, biomedical, electronics, energy, optics, optoelectronics, security and other applications.
