This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Scratch-Resistant Glass Market is accounted for $1.88 billion in 2017 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% to reach $4.59 billion by 2026. Demand from the smartphones & tablets application, high-quality televisions, increasing adoption of advanced technology and requirement for high performance glasses are boosting the market growth. Growing use of film lamination & coatings is restraining the market growth. Furthermore, demand from developing economies will provide ample opportunity for the market. Alternative materials, like chemically strengthened glass-ceramics, may also have a future in this market.

By Product, Sapphire Glass is expensive. It is used in for display requirements of mobile devices along with complex optics & micro-optics in augmented reality applications. Sapphire as a substrate for GaN µLED is used. Sapphire has much higher scratch resistance and fracture toughness for cover screens in personal mobile electronics. sapphire has better electrical properties, leading to increased touch sensitivity and potentially enhanced battery life. Sapphire is a crystal with a melting point of 2,044°C. Sapphire also has five times higher Young’s modulus of elasticity than glass. This also means that the liquid crystal display (LCD) behind the sapphire screen suffers much less distortion, providing superior and longer performance.

Based on Application, future vehicle construction may place other scratch prone materials in areas susceptible to scratch damage. Sunroof is emerging as key styling feature. Elegant surfaces on car dashboards, windshields, collaborative surfaces, interactive mirrors are being applied. Specialized surface treatments have helped reduce glare, improve aesthetics, enhance scratch resistance, and even cut down on odor and stain causing bacteria. Chemically toughened glasses are made by immersing glass in a molten salt bath that causes potassium ions to replace some of the sodium ions on the glass surface. In premium optical glazing, an extremely even coating of the scratch-resistant layer is important. Therefore, new processes are being developed to apply hard materials directly from the gaseous phase to the polymer glass.

Some of the key players in Global Scratch-Resistant Glass market are Rubicon Technology, Kyocera Group, Crystalwise Technology, Edmund Optics, Swiss Jewel, Saint Gobain, Corning Incorporated, Asahi Glass, Nippon Electric Glass, Guardian Industries, Schott AG and Monocrystal.
