Quantum Dots (QD) Market Overview

Quantum dots are human-made Nano crystals made up from semiconducting material that can help in transporting electrons. These small semiconductor Nano particles have the ability to emit out light of myriad colors after UV light is incident on them. Moreover, these particles have both optical as well as electronic features that are different from large particles. Their optoelectronic characteristics alter as the function of size and shape.

Additionally, the diameters of these particles range between 2 nm to 10 nm.  Quantum dots of 5nm to 6 nm diameter emit orange or red colored waves, while those dots with diameters ranging between 2 nm to 3nm yield green and blue colored waves. Moreover, these particles find a spectrum of applications in single-electron transistors, medicine, sensing, photovoltaics, catalysis, photonics, imaging, catalysis, solar cells, agriculture, UAVs or drones, QLED TVs, composites, florescent biological labels, lasers, and quantum computing.

Market Growth Dynamics

High popularity of quantum dots in optoelectronic domains including LEDs and photovoltaic cells due to their beneficial photoluminescence features will exponentiate the market growth over the years ahead. Apart from this, due to their photo luminescent & electro luminescent features as well as exceptional physical properties, quantum dots are likely to play a key role in the production of next-gen displays. In addition to this, use of quantum dot based materials in LEDs provide pure colors, reduce production cost, increase lifespan & durability of LEDs, and minimize electricity consumption as compared to organic luminescent materials. All these aforementioned factors will catapult the Quantum Dots (QD) market expansion over the coming decade.

Furthermore, quantum dots help in detection of cryptosporidium parvum oocyst - a waterborne virus- during its transmissive phase, thereby helping in reducing the risk of contamination of potable water and avoid waterborne diseases. This in turn will catalyze the business growth within the span of the next few years. With the researchers focusing on the applicability of quantum dots in new domains through extensive research, it is more likely that the market will gain traction in the coming years. Apart from this, the inception of nanotechnology and its predicted use in various fields will unlock new growth opportunities for the Quantum Dots (QD) market in the near future.
