“Quantum dot technology, including quantum rod, or tetrapod-shaped quantum dot, could improve picture quality dramatically in terms of color gamut, color accuracy and reducing power consumption compared to conventional Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)/Light Emitting Diode (LED),” said Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, CEO and principal analyst of Touch Display Research Inc.

  • QLED (Quantum-based Light Emitting Diode) TV is the category name for any TV displays that use quantum dots in them.
  • Samsung acquired the IPs of QD Vision at the end of 2016.
  • In 2016, Samsung Electronics has applied for the trademark “Samsung QLED TV” with US Patent and Trademark Office. Samsung indicated that although they own the “Samsung QLED TV” trade mark, the “QLED” name is a common term like OLED TV or LED TV. “QLED” can be used by the whole display industry as a category name to call any displays with quantum dots in it.
  • More than 8 TV brands have shipped or utilized QLED TVs, including: Sony, Hisense, TLC, Samsung, Vizio, Sharp.
  • At CES 2017, Samsung is full gear on quantum dot. It announced several QLED TV lines: Q7, Q8 and Q9. Samsung also showed dozens of monitors with quantum dot, from 31.5” to 34”.
  • In April 2017, three large TV suppliers (Samsung, Hisense, TCL), supply chain (Nanosys) and 5 large retailers in China (GOME Electrical Appliances, Suning Commerce Group,, Five Star and Sundan) formed QLED TV Alliance in Beijing China.
  • Dr. Colegrove, author of this report, has conducted many first-hand interviews of quantum dot material and component suppliers, display manufactures, and OEMs in recent 8 years. She was the first industry analyst to publish a comprehensive quantum dot market report.
  • Over 90 companies are profiled and supply chain analysis with many companies is provided.
  • What does the new quantum dot supply chain look like in 2017 and 2018?
  • Who will be the winner in 2017?
  • Which form factor quantum dots will be dominant in 2027?
  • This report provides market analysis and forecast of quantum dot for display and lighting, with analysis of quantum dots for other applications: solar, battery, laser, bio-science, and medical labeling.
  • This report provides not only the outlook for quantum dot components in display and lighting, but also analysis and comparison between conventional LCD, LCD/LED with quantum dot, LCD/LED with Cd-free QD, and AMOLED.
  • The strengths and weaknesses of key players are analyzed.
  • This report provides a Bill of Material (BOM) analysis of QLED for TV, and BOM of quantum dot monitor displays.
  • Market data in the report includes 4 years history data (2013-2016) and 11 years forecast data (from 2017 to 2027).
  • The market forecast includes Unit, quantum dot component ASP and Revenue, with a detailed breakdown by Cadmium-type quantum dot and Cd-free quantum dot; a detailed breakdown by nine applications.
  • Regional analysis is also provided in this report.

What our clients say

Your latest Quantum Dot report, we think yours is by far the most accurate by the way, others I’ve seen are not accurate even for their 2013 numbers!!”—a client of our Quantum Dot display and lighting report

“We like your monthly report. It’s like you are traveling for us to over 10 international conferences each year, and writing travel reports too. Since we are very busy every day with meetings and lab works, we can’t attend many conferences. Your monthly reports keep us updated with all the new trends.”– a client of the Touch and Emerging Display monthly report.

“Great report. It’s very thorough.”–a client of our ITO-replacement report

“Thanks for your fast turnaround. It’s very helpful.”–a client of a custom project
