Investment summary

Proposed amendments (subject to ratification) to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) by the European Commission recommend a two-year more restrictive extension to the exemption of cadmium in quantum dot displays, subsequent to which the use of any cadmium in electronic devices sold within the EU will be banned. The use of cadmium in lighting products will be prohibited with immediate effect. The judgement has little impact on our investment thesis, as we believe that commercial factors for cadmium-free adoption are already strong.

Industry outlook

Market analysts are forecasting strong uptake of QD TVs and cadmium-free is expected to dominate volumes. Market analysts’ forecasts for QD adoption in display vary, but at the mid-point, QD TV shipments are forecast to grow from c 5m in 2017 to nearly 50m by 2020, which we estimate equates to a market opportunity for QD materials of $550m by 2020.
