Ultra-Thin Glass Market Insights

The global ultra-thin glass market is estimated to witness a significant CAGR during the forecast period (2020-2026). Ultra-thin glass plays a vital role in the electronics industry due to its properties such as abrasion and corrosion resistance, flexibility, gas barrier capability, surface smoothness and transparency. It is thinner than a single human hair strand and thus provides advantages over other substrate materials such as plastics, metals or silicone. Growing usage of ultra-thin glass in solar panels, along with growing use of lightweight materials to enhance energy efficiency in various industries are some of the major factors driving the market growth. However, stringent government regulations, high costs of raw materials involved in the production of ultra-thin glass, and improving durability of ultra-thin glass used in foldable smart-phones are some of the factors restraining the market growth.

Ultra-Thin Glass Market

Ultra-Thin Glass Market Size: By Application

Based on application, the market is segmented into semiconductor substrate, touch panel displays, fingerprint sensors, and automotive glazing, among others. The touch panel displays segment is projected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue and volume during the forecast period due to increase in demand for touch panel display and smartphones and TVs. Furthermore, the automotive glazing is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period due to the growing demand for lightweight cars. The more weight reduction helps to achieve a higher fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions.

Ultra-Thin Glass Market Size: By Thickness

Based on the thickness, the market is segmented into <0.1mm, 0.1-0.5mm, 0.5–1.0mm, and 1.0–1.2mm. The 0.1mm-0.5mm segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to its flexible properties. It finds applications in fingerprint sensor, semiconductor substrate, vehicle infotainment system, and biotechnological devices, among others.  

Ultra-Thin Glass Market Size: By Manufacturing Process

Based on the manufacturing process, the market is segmented into floats, fusion, and down-drown. The float segment is expected to hold the largest market share in terms of revenue and volume during the forecast period due to additives such as pigments and processing agents, are also added to improve the ultra-thin glass' physical and chemical properties. In the float process, the raw materials are melted to produce a molten mixture of glass in a furnace at around 15,000°C.

Ultra-Thin Glass Market Size: By End-Use Industry

Based on the end-use industry, the market is segmented into consumer electronics, automotive & transportation, and medical & healthcare, among others. The consumer electronics segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to properties such as electrical conductivity and sensitivity, transmissivity and versatility. The ultra-thin glass is widely used in applications such as displays and sensors in the consumer electronics industry.
