Quantum dot (QD) is a type of nanostructure in semiconductor. It confines valence band holes and conduction of band electrons through electrostatic potential or presence of a semiconductor surface. These particles are traditionally called chalcogenides of various metals. These metals include zinc and cadmium. Manufacturers can change the size and structure of these particles, which is considered to be a vital characteristic of the quantum dot. According to the research reports, the global quantum dots market is expected to grow at an exponential rate over the next few years. This growth is primarily driven by the rising demand from different application segments. Rising demand from the emerging markets is also expected to provide business opportunities to the established market players.
