Annual Quantum Dot Display Technology and Market Outlook Report

Quantum dots have been used for a decade to enhance colors in LCD panels. The latest display technology to be commercialized is QD-OLED. This technology uses a Quantum Dot Color Conversion (QDCC) layer that is inkjet-printed on top of an OLED panel. Total panel area for QD-OLED and QD-LCD is set to grow by nearly 15% next year. TV is by far the biggest segment for quantum dot displays, not just in terms of panel area but also in units, with over 15M TV sets expected to contain quantum dots in 2023. There has been a lot of progress in electroluminescent quantum dots (EL-QD) in recent years. This technology removes the need for a blue OLED stack as the quantum dots emit light directly instead of converting colors. Leading display manufacturers, including Samsung Display, TCL, Sharp and BOE, have demonstrated EL-QD prototypes recently. MicroLED displays can also make use of quantum dots. Color conversion is seen as a solution to address the low efficiency of red MicroLEDs. It is also considered for small monolithic MicroLED displays.
