Quantum Dots
Kisco Cd-Based and Cd-Free Quantum Dot


  • QDs soluble in resin – transparent
  • Transparency => better light extraction i.e. brighter
  • Able to tune colors; warm, neutral and cool whites
  • High efficiency phosphor alternative
  • High CRI
  • Ideal for LED Backlighting
  • Cd-free quantum dots also available
  • Narrow FWHM
  • Improved color gamut

A compilation of six major research reports shows wide agreement that the global QD market is expected to grow by about $1 billion/year starting in 2016.QMC believes global capacity might be 8 metric tons/year by the end of 2015. We estimate that industry capacity will increase by about that much every year for the next few years, then faster.

Throughput Capabilities that Meet Tomorrows Quantum Dot Forecasts

Production Capacity

  • Current Automated Process Systems
  • Multiple Metric Tons/Year Capacity
  • Capacity Can be Added at Low CAPEX
  • We Expect to Double Production in 2016
  • And Add More Capacity in 2017 to Meet Expected Worldwide Market Demand

“The Biggest Area for Advancement will be fulfilling the needs and demands of industry for the tonnage of quantum dots that will be needed for all the products companies want to manufacture.”
