A number of new smartwatches, e-readers and next generation smartphones, including the next iteration of Apple’s iPhone, are in the pipeline. Consumers are increasingly looking for innovation when considering the purchase of new tech toys, and the displays on these new devices are under scrutiny. There is currently a huge demand for slim, lightweight, and scratch resistant displays.
Flexible glass is ultra-thin, with rigid glass properties such as high barrier properties, strength, temperature stability, and durability, but in a flexible form. It combines the scratch resistance and rigidity properties of plastics, forming a rollable, flexible, and wearable glass. These qualities make next-generation electronic gadgets more lightweight, attractive, and handy.
“These glasses will change the next-generation technologies and electronic devices through applications such as flexible display, epaper, OLED lighting, organic PV, and R2R displays. This shift in consumer application is a major driver in the Global Flexible Glass market,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio Research.
Ghaus goes on to say that, “there are numerous benefits of flexible glass; for instance, it acts as a substrate for high-quality electronics and supports critical device fabrication and performance providing overall optimization, which is integral for the next-generation Electronics industry. It offers a high-quality surface and optical and hermeticity properties that are handy in display, touch sensor, PV, and lighting applications.”
