Quantum dots market will grow in next 18 months in consumer electronics

The current market for companies selling quantum dots is between $25 million (conservative) and $48 million (optimistic) in revenues, with the QD-enabled product market in excess of this. Revenues for quantum dot-enhanced products are potentially upwards of $7 billion by 2024 across displays, solid-state lighting, solar, biomedical, anti-counterfeiting and sensors sectors. Lighting and displays each represent potentially $100 billion global markets by 2020, representing a significant opportunity for quantum dot components.
