AUSTIN, TEXAS, January 3, 2017 - Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has released a new White Paper that examines which technology will win the battle for the TV market – OLEDs or Quantum Dots. The TV market alone accounts for around 70% of the total display area being produced each year and, therefore, has a significant impact on the success of emerging display technologies. Sponsored by Nanosys, the leader in Quantum Dots, and independently authored by DSCC’s experienced analysts, the White Paper examines the outlook for each technology from a performance, capacity and cost basis through 2021. It also provides a shipment forecast for OLED and QD TVs by size category.

According to Nanosys Worldwide VP of Marketing and Sales, Russell Kempt, “We contacted DSCC and asked them to perform a detailed analysis of all factors that influence the outlook for the TV market. By examining these technologies on a cost, capacity and performance basis, we believe that DSCC could predict which technologies are likely to achieve dominant market share.” 

According to DSCC CEO, Ross Young, “While there has been a lot of excitement about the rapid growth in OLED capacity, consumers and investors need to realize that most of that capacity will be dedicated to mobile displays. In addition, today’s OLED TV displays have both high fab costs and high material costs, creating a wide cost difference with QD LCD TVs, which are coming down in cost rapidly and can support much higher volumes. Furthermore, QD LCDs offer as good or better wide color gamut (WCG) and high dynamic range (HDR) performance as OLEDs which is becoming increasingly important as more content offers that capability. Although both technologies have a bright outlook, we believe QD LCDs will grab a much larger share of the TV market.”
