ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS, the electronics industry market research and knowledge network, announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Quantum Dots market.
According to the report titled, “Quantum Dots (QD) Market – Global Forecast & Analysis 2012 – 2022” the total market for Quantum dots is expected to reach $7480.25 million ($7.48 Billion) by 2022, at a CAGR of 55.2% from 2012 to 2022.
Quantum Dots (QD) is the most advanced area of “semiconductor nanoparticles”, which is undergoing massive research. QDs are semiconductor nanoparticles, and, as the name suggests, have size from 2 nm to 10 nm. Due to their miniature property; they are highly versatile and flexible. The uniqueness of QD material lays in the fact that its power intensity depends on the input source and size of QD.
There are several ways to confine excitons in semiconductors, resulting in different methods to produce quantum dots. In general, quantum wires, wells, and dots are grown by advanced epitaxial techniques in nanocrystals produced by chemical methods or by ion implantation, or in nanodevices made by state-of-the-art lithographic techniques.
In the present scenario of QD technology market, Healthcare is the only industry, which has gained significant market share. Healthcare needs high precision in tissue labeling, cancer therapy, tumor detection, etc. and QD-based devices work for the same.
Lighting industry is huge; and after the introduction of efficient lighting like LED, this industry has taken a huge leap. LED lighting and fixtures market is growing by leaps and bounds since the last few years and expected to expand further. Now companies are looking for the alternate technology for LED lighting. QD lighting will fulfill the need; it is highly efficient and cost-effective. QD Vision has collaborated with Nexxus Lighting to launch its first QD LED light, and soon it will capture the market. Likewise, the company is also working on QD display.
QD technology will play a crucial role in solar energy-oriented industry as well. Researchers have developed QD-based solar cell, which is 50% as efficient as conventional solar cell. University of Toronto has achieved an efficiency of 4.2% conversion with solar cell based on colloidal QDs (CQD). Researchers are also working on QD-based paint that can be applied to panels or walls to capture solar energy.
Global Quantum Dots Market for technology-products and applications is expected to reach $7480.25 million by 2022, at an estimated CAGR of 55.2% from 2012 to 2022. Americas are holding a leadership position in QD technology market on the whole; followed by Europe and APAC. In the market of ROW, Middle East and Africa are the largest contributors.
