Published Date: | Report Code : EQ2059014


The Global Quantum Dots Market is expected to grow from USD 4.48 billion in 2019 to reach USD 51.29 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 31.1% during the forecast period. Quantum dots are basically tiny semiconductor particles with are a few nanometres in size. Their optical, electronic & luminescent properties are different than those of conventional larger LED particles. Quantum dots are the biggest use of nanotechnology in electronics & lighting solutions. Quantum dots are excited by UV radiations. Once UV light falls on Quantum dots, their valence band electrons jump into the conduction band and they start illuminating.

Quantum Dots Market

The electronics industry is the major prime end-user of quantum dots. With an increased demand for high-quality displays in the quantum dots market, the demand for quantum dots in on the rise. The prime application of quantum dots is the quantum dot enhancement film (QDEF) layer, which is used to improve LED backlighting in LCD televisions. The quantum dots technology helps in getting rid of the splitting light phenomenon observed in LCD screens and offer more true colors along with an extended color mix. They are used for energy-efficient lightening solutions. The increased use of LED's has increased the demand for QD technology. LED's are more energy efficient & brighter than normal lights. Hence QD white LED lights are in huge demand. The quantum dots have potential drawbacks. In healthcare, quantum dots are used for microcellular operations. Sometimes, the QD's are unable to fully coalesce with cellular macrophages and this can be toxic towards the body.

The Asia Pacific region is witnessing tremendous growth in quantum dots market, which is projected to continue during the forecast period owing to the increasing use of energy-efficient lighting solutions and increasing demand for high-quality displays. China is the biggest manufacturer as well as consumer of QD technology followed by India & Japan. The North American & European regions are also projected to experience steady growth due to the increasing use of QD technology in healthcare & defense sectors. The Middle East is still an emerging player with regards to quantum dots market.
