1.3 Million TVs and Counting

Published on 6/3/2015

It’s no secret that there are a lot of scientists and engineers at Nanoco. More than 80% of our employees work in our labs, furthering new applications for our quantum dot technology and nanomaterials.

As scientists, we love numbers and the data gathered from them as they provide the evidence that a particular theory is true, turning great ideas into reality.

We’re especially excited by some recent numbers from DisplaySearch which clearly demonstrate that Quantum dot TVs are “coming on strong.”

The research firm says “LCD TVs, using quantum dots technology will become available this year. . . with 1.3 million shipping worldwide. Shipments of quantum dots TVs are expected to grow to 18.7 million in 2018.

That surge in shipping TVs is, no doubt, tied to the availability of high-performance cadmium free quantum dots. Leading LCD display makers, like LG, are choosing cadmium-free quantum dots not only for the brilliant displays they enable but because they are also the smarter choice for human and environmental health.
