Quantum dots are particles of Nano-meter size used in various systems due to their optical properties. The potential benefits of Quantum dots that allow industries to tune the wavelength of the light emitted according to the requirement are considered to be a key factor in the growth of the Quantum Dots Market. The size, shape, and composition of the particles make them very suitable for display and other commercial use. The process of plasma synthesis is widely accepted in recent times, due to the flexibility it provides in terms of size control, surface and shape of the Quantum dots. On the other hand, technological advances in the industry are increasing due to the increasing use of end-user technology. However, screen manufacturers are considered to be the main industries for users of the Quantum Dot sector. Cadmium-free quantum dots are gaining popularity in a few regions due to the high stability and reduced risk associated with cadmium use in screens.

Following the epidemic, there has been an increase in demand for displays and advertising, and these developments are anticipated to spur the expansion of the quantum dot market over the next years.

Based on Material, the quantum dot market is further bifurcated into, Cadmium-based and Cadmium-free. Cadmium-free quantum dots offer a safer and more sustainable option for manufacturers and consumers, giving them the technological advantage associated with technology without any toxic risks or regulatory limitations. Cadmium-free quantum dots are not only suitable for display but also for a number of applications such as lighting solutions, solar cells, and biomedicine. As a result, the fraction of cadmium-free quantum dots is expected to grow at the highest CAGR at the time of forecast.

Based on Product, the quantum dot market is segmented into, displays and other type displays. Quantum dot displays have low spectrum, high stability and low power consumption. Therefore, they are increasingly used by the displays manufacturer. The Quantum dot is used for displaying flat panel TV screens, digital cameras, smartphones, gaming consoles, and personal digital assistant (PDA) devices. LEDs with quantum dot luminophores are a promising development in the display ecosystem. Increased acceptance of quantum dots on display is expected to further drive the quantum dot display market.

Based on Vertical, the quantum dot market is segmented into, Consumer, Healthcare, Telecommunications, Commercial, Defense and Others. Consumer vertical is expected to continue to hold the largest market share of quantum dots during the forecast period. Many consumer electronics companies use quantum dots in their products as these technologies can improve display performance by providing higher color accuracy, as well as reducing energy consumption. The use of quantum dots in consumer electronics products offers a number of benefits, including high brightness, pure color, and wavelength intensity, which enables display designers to tailor the brightness range to maximize both the efficiency and color performance of any display in order to obtain fantastic user experiences.

As a result, the vertical buyer is expected to capture the market share of the quantum dot market during the forecast period.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.

The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
