New Report Covers Quantum Dot Materials, Technologies, and Products

Industry Analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the addition of a new report to its publication schedule titled, "Market Opportunities for Quantum Dots" that will be released the week of July 29, 2013.

Additional details about the report are available at

About the Report:

This new NanoMarkets report provides an in depth market analysis of recent developments in the field of quantum dots (QDs), examining the latest products, strategies and technical developments in electronics applications for these emerging materials. We identify how QDs are likely to penetrate addressable markets in biotechnology, lighting, displays, and other applications:

  • We examine the potential for QDs used as phosphors in the solid-state LED lighting sector.
  • We look at the potential for QDs used in display backlighting units vs. QDs used to make direct emission "QD-LED" displays.
  • We also assess the status of the use of quantum dots in biotechnology applications, which were the first commercial adopters of QDs.

The report also includes NanoMarkets' assessments of the strategies of leading firms active in the QD space.  As always with NanoMarkets reports, this report contains granular forecasts of QD shipments in volume and value terms.
