At the Samsung’s press conference yesterday, Samsung announced their new 19 models of Quantum Dot SUHD TVs—the broadest SUHD lineup Europe has ever seen. Samsung also unveiled the world’s first curved Quantum Dot PC monitors available in 24 inches and 27 inches.

At the Samsung’s press conference, Mr. Jason Hartlove, President & CEO of Nanosys joined Samsung’s Video Display Europe Vice President Mr. Michael Zoeller on stage as a guest speaker. Mr. Hartlove revealed Quantum dot is among the most stable and reliable display materials available anywhere on the planet, enabling superior performance and more environmentally-friendly displays with an extraordinary lifespan. Such is the company’s confidence in the reliability of Quantum dot, Samsung announced a new 10-year warranty for its SUHD TVs with Quantum dot display, protecting consumers against the effects of burn-in for an entire decade.

Nanoco signed quantum dot license with Wah Hong

July 22, 2016

Today, Nanoco, a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots and other nanomaterials, announced a good news—it signed a seven-year supply and licensing agreement to supply Cadmium-free quantum dot to Wah Hong Industrial Corporation. Wah Hong is a leading Taiwanese manufacturer and supplier of optical films.

Quantum dot market has been growing rapidly in recent couple of years. Just 2 months ago, Nanosys announced that Hitachi Chemical and Nanosys have partnered in the development of QDEF (quantum dot enhancement film) for display applications. Hitachi Chemical plans to begin shipping QDEF in mass production volumes during the 2nd half of 2016.

In the recently published “Quantum Dot Display and Lighting Technologies and Market Forecast Report (Third Edition),” Touch Display Research surveyed many quantum dot suppliers, display manufacturers and OEMs, and analyzed and forecasted the quantum dot display component market with detail of material type and form factor. This report profiles over 80 companies working on quantum dot materials and quantum dot components. Touch Display Research forecasts the overall QD display component and lighting and QLED market will surpass $2 billion by 2017, and reach $10.8 billion by 2026.

Quantum dots making big progress at SID 2016

May 27, 2016

At SID 2016 DisplayWeek, quantum dot is continued to be hot topic, even hotter than last year.(see our blog about last year’s SID).

Nanosys announced two good news. Nanosys announced that Hitachi Chemical and Nanosys have partnered in the development of QDEF (quantum dot enhancement film) for display applications. Hitachi Chemical plans to begin shipping QDEF in mass production volumes during the 2nd half of 2016.

Nanosys also announced a breakthrough quantum dot film—Hyperion. Hyperion Quantum Dots have Cadmium in it, but very little, below 90 ppm. In the European Union’s Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, it requests any component with Cadmium must be <100 ppm (which is 0.01%). RoHS never requests Cd-free. Now, Hyperion QDs meet this requirement, so it doesn’t need to request exemption. Touch Display Research believes this is very clever. How is Hyperion’s performance? More analysis of Hyperion can be found in the Touch and Emerging Display monthly report.

QD Vision also showed TVs with Color IQ and new TPV’s AOC brand monitors with Color IQ in them. Three new quantum dot companies had shown Touch Display Research their QD samples recently.

In the recently published “Quantum Dot 2016 Report (Third Edition),” Touch Display Research surveyed many quantum dot suppliers, display manufacturers and OEMs, and analyzed and forecasted the quantum dot display component market with detail of material type and form factor. This report profiles over 80 companies working on quantum dot materials and quantum dot components. Touch Display Research forecasts the overall QD display component and lighting and QLED market will surpass $2 billion by 2017, and reach $10.8 billion by 2026.

SID 2015 Monday Seminar: from mainstream to emerging display

June 6, 2015

SID 2015 DisplayWeek is held in San Jose, California this week. I taught a seminar on Monday morning, titled “Display Market Forecast –LCD, OLED, e-paper and touch, from main stream to emerging display”.

When I arrived the seminar location at 8:15am, (15 minutes before it starts), the room is full of attendees already. I first listed the hot trends in display industry in 2015 and 2016. Then I provided the global display industry market forecast from 2015 to 2025. The overall display industry growth is slowing down but there are hot trends in many areas. The new opportunities in display market include:  quantum dot display, flexible and curved LCD display, high resolution, OLED display, e-paper display, embedded touch screens.

Figure: Dr. Jennifer Colegrove taught Monday Seminar at SID 2015 DisplayWeek.
