Ultra-thin glass is a high-end glass with a thickness that is lesser than that of a human hair. It offers advantages such as surface flatness, thermal stability, weather resistance, lightweight & superior optical quality, and flexibility. These characteristics it a superior option for electronic & optical sensors, touch & display panels, semiconductors, energy storage devices, and organic electronics such as moisture & oxygen barriers.
The rising demand for electronic devices such as LEDs, LCDs, OLEDs, smartphones, laptops, and monitors is anticipated to boost the demand for display panels. The increasing production of smartphones along with larger display sizes for other electronic devices is expected to bolster market growth in the coming years. Apart from smartphones, smartwatches are rapidly becoming popular and as such, will positively contribute to global ultra-thin glass market growth.
Significant capital investments due to technological advancements, crucial manufacturing processes, and the growing demand for products to meet ultra-thin glass product benchmark standards is hindering the entrance of new players in this market.
In terms of application, the market is segmented into semiconductors, flat panel displays, and automotive glazing among others. The flat panel display segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. Among semi-conductors, ultra-thin glass is used in interposer applications and chip packaging as they are highly transparent and function at high frequencies which results in offering better performance. The automotive glazing segment is projected to expand at a high CAGR over the forecast period. As ultra-thin glass is lightweight, it aids in reducing CO2 emissions and offers a better fuel economy, and this is anticipated to fuel growth over the next ten years. The ‘other’ applications include – solar panels, energy storage devices, and organic electronics.
The Asia Pacific market accounted for the largest market share in 2018. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for flat-screen displays in countries such as India, China and South Korea. China accounts for almost 50% of the global flat panel display fabrication plants followed closely by South Korea. Prominent LED and OLED manufacturing companies are focusing on effectively penetrating the markets of these emerging economies to meet the growing demand of these products by consumers.
The ultra-thin glass market of North America was dominated by the US in 2018 due to its comprehensive semiconductor industry. The country accounted for almost 45% of the global semiconductor market share in 2018, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).
Europe is expected to index a high CAGR over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the surging demand for LEDs, LCDs, the automotive & solar energy sectors.
