Glass Substrate Market Development Trends & Competitive Analysis by Leading Industry Players- Exclusive Report by MarketsandMarkets™

Glass Substrate Market by Type (Borosilicate, Silicon, Ceramic, and Fused Silica/Quartz-Based Glass Substrates), End-Use Industry (Electronics, Automotive, Medical, Aerospace & Defense, Solar), and Region

By Jack MartinPublished about a year ago 3 min read

The glass substrate market is projected to reach USD 1.97 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.7% between 2017 and 2022. Glass substrates are thin, flat glass boards on which a thin circuit is deposited with precision. They are produced using several raw materials such as borosilicate, silicon, ceramic, fused silica/quartz, soda-lime, and aluminosilicate. Glass substrates are available in the form of disks and panels. Disk-shaped glass substrates are known as wafers and are primarily used to manufacture semiconductors, whereas, panel-shaped glass substrates are used in the manufacturing of LCDs. The shape, size, thickness, sharpness, and flexibility of glass substrates depend on their end-use application requirements. The increasing demand for glass substrates from end-use industries, such as electronics, automotive, medical, aerospace & defense, and solar, for the manufacturing of end-products, such as semiconductors, LCDs, sensors, and solar panel is one of the most significant factors projected to drive the growth of the glass substrate market.
