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 - Global Forecast to 2022

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 - Global Forecast to 2022

“The glass substrate market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period”
The glass substrate market is estimated to be USD 1.49 billion in 2017 and 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. The increasing use of LCDs in consumer durables, smart handheld devices, and automotive applications is one of the most significant factors driving the growth of the glass substrate market during the forecast period. However, the high manufacturing cost of glass substrates acts as a restraint to the growth of the glass substrate market.

“Borosilicate-based glass substrates: the fastest-growing type segment of the glass substrate market”
Based on type, the borosilicate-based glass substrates segment is projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. These substrates are available at affordable costs as compared to other glass substrates. In addition, unique properties of borosilicate-based glass substrates, such as low coefficient of thermal expansion, high chemical resistivity, and high surface strength are contributing to the increased consumption of borosilicate-based glass substrates, globally. The fused silica/quartz-based glass substrates segment is projected to grow at the second-highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the improved thermal expansion capability of fused silica/quartz-based glass substrates as compared to borosilicate-based glass substrates.

“The electronics industry accounted for the largest share of the glass substrate market”
The electronics industry accounted for a major share of the glass substrate market. The increasing use of glass substrates to manufacture display devices, electronic components, semiconductors, MEMS devices, and information, computing & telecommunication devices is expected to drive the growth of the glass substrate market in the electronics industry. Moreover, advancements in the field of LCDs and semiconductors are further contributing to the growth of the glass substrate market.

“Asia Pacific projected to be the fastest-growing market for glass substrates”
The glass substrate market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2022. This growth can be attributed to the increased production of electronic devices in the Asia Pacific region. Among all countries in Asia Pacific, the glass substrate market in China is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Technological advancements in end-use industries, such as electronics, automotive, and medical, are expected to drive the growth of the glass substrate market in this region.
