IHS Markit sees robust growth continuing for large screens with consumers attracted to aggressive deals on larger 65” TVs. Advanced technologies like Quantum Dots are benefiting from this growth. IHS modeling shows Quantum Dot out-pacing OLED growth with a CAGR of over 37% and over 6.5 million QDTVs shipped in 2020.
In a news release, IHS analysts called out Quantum Dot technology’s transition to mainstream TV pricing as a key driver:
“The high-end prices of non-QD-equipped LCD TV models and the prices of the low end QD-equipped LCD TV models have moved closer together,” Gagnon said. “This extension of the quantum dot LCD TV lineup into more moderate price ranges effectively reduces the quantum dot premium to less than 100 percent at mid-range sizes, opening up the category to a larger addressable market of consumers.”
Industry analyst Ken Werner, writing for SID’s InformationDisplay magazine, highlighted Nanosys Quantum Dot technology leadership in a review of exciting emissive display technology from the 2018 DisplayWeek show in Los Angeles. According to Ken,
“If you buy a quantum-dot or QD-enhanced LCD TV, it will have quantum dots made by or licensed by Nanosys. There are other quantum-dot companies operating in this industry – but for some reason those dots don’t appear in products any of us buy.
In its booth, Nanosys showed technology demos that included one for ink-jetted QD matrices to replace the matrix color filters used in current LCDs. Another showed early- stage electroluminescent QDs.
Also shown in the booth, and new to me… the Vizio P Series Quantum TV with Nanosys’s Hyperion QD film and 192 full-array local dimming zones delivered an impressive image.”
