Flexible glass as originally promoted seemed to be a miracle material; one that combined the virtues of glass and the virtues of plastic. However, during 2013, flexible glass seems to have stumbled. Ambitious talk of millions of flexible mobile displays based on flexible glass substrates and cover glass have given way to more restrained projections in which initial uses for flexible glass are more niche-like; batteries, capacitors and sensors, for example. Corning's recent announcement of shaped Gorilla Glass, seems a recognition that the cover glass requirements for next-generation displays may be more curved than flexible.
This report provides a market assessment and eight-year forecast of flexible glass, given the new business environment in which flexible glass providers find themselves. The report examines (1) the traditional markets into which flexible glass was supposed to be sold and when they might become a reality and (2) the revenue potential for flexible glass in some of the newer applications for which it is now being proposed.
In addition to the likely trends in applications, this report also discusses the product strategies of the leading glass companies offering flexible glass and also includes detailed eight-year forecasts of flexible glass with breakouts by applications. The report is the third dedicated analysis from NanoMarkets and updates previously issued reports and forecasts.
