Scratch Resistant Glass Market Segment Analysis – By Material

Silica material type segment held a significant share in the scratch resistant glass market in 2020 due to excellent transmission of light in the visible region. The porous silica rich layer improvers the scratch resistant of the glass surface to be treated by immersion, spraying, and spinning. Silica, soda, and lime makes soda lime silicate which useful in variety of industries, including the consumer goods manufacturing, electronics equipment, and more. Hence, due to various properties of silica like high strength, tunable, cost effective, and long-term stability the market growth of scratch resistant glass tends to rising continuously.

Scratch Resistant Glass Market Segment Analysis – By Type

Chemically strengthened glass segment held the largest share in the scratch resistant glass market in 2020 due to its wide usage in smartphones, watch, LED, and optical windows. It provides strength and damage resistance to smartphones and other devices and maintains its original elegance much longer. This glass mostly used in interior architectural because of high transparency and easy to clean. Also chemically strengthened glass has been used for computer hard disks and pharmaceutical devices. Chemical strengthened glass is used in a various transportation application such as boat windshield, railcar windshields, and airplane windshields. Because of thermal shock of chemical strengthened better than conventional laminated, tempered glass, and semi tempered glass, will boost the growth of the scratch resistant glass market.

Scratch Resistant Glass Market Segment Analysis – By Application

Electrical and electronics have been the primary market for scratch resistant in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR 9.5% during 2021-2026. This glass is very durable and avoids minor damages and scratches. Scratch resistant glass is more lightweight laptops and tablets with exceptional visual quality, while providing damage and scratch resistant from everyday handing and use. Scratch resistance glass such as sapphire glass, soda lime silicate and polycarbonate lenses are providing permanent protection form UV rays and excellent clarity. Hence, increasing consumption for wearable devices with ultimate combination of protection and performance that increases the demand of scratch resistant glass. In September 2020, Apple Inc. launched Apple Watch Series 6 (blood oxygen sensor) and Apple Watch SE, two iPad models, iPhone. Apple Watch brings significant developments in health and wellness features to iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Apple Watch Series 6 measures the oxygen saturation of blood for a better understanding of fitness and wellness. Hence, growing expansion from wearable market is expected to grow the market size during this era.

Scratch Resistant Glass Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

Asia Pacific dominated the scratch resistant glass market in 2020 with share of 30%, due to increasing demand of scratch resistant glass for smartphone, smart watches, LED, tablets, and medical devices in Asian countries such as India, China, Japan, and more.
