Quantum dots (QD) are a successful example of nanotechnology. We at IDTechEx Research expect that QDs will be used in over 7 Msqm of displays in 2019 (for exact forecasts consult our report). The current dominant method of QD integration in displays is the film-type. This is a non-ideal solution designed as a workaround to current material shortcomings. However, as the QD material system expands, new methods of integration as well as new applications beyond displays will become enabled.
In this article, we will briefly outline some of the key material development trends. Here, we will touch on different materials compositions and different applications. This analysis is drawn from our report Quantum Dot Materials and Technologies 2019-2029: Trends, Markets, Players.
