Industry Insights

[219+ Pages Report] According to a Facts and Factors report, the global quantum dot solar cells market was registered at approximately USD 758.1 Million in 2020 and is expected to generate revenue of almost USD 2,319.8 Million by the year 2026, growing at a CAGR of approximately 20.5% between 2021 and 2026.

logoMarket Overview          

Quantum dots are thought to be man-made atoms. Their energy levels can be adjusted by changing their size, which defines the bandgap. The dots can be grown in a variety of sizes, allowing them to communicate a wide range of bandgaps without changing the underlying material or construction. Sizing is accomplished by varying the duration or temperature of the fusion.

Quantum dot solar cells have the potential for solar, or photovoltaic, cells that reduce wasteful heat while maximizing the amount of solar energy converted to electricity. This is significant in terms of making solar energy more cost-competitive with traditional power sources.
