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. The increasing use of LCDs in consumer durables, smart handheld devices, and automotive applications is one of the most significant factors projected to drive the growth of the glass substrate market. In addition, the growth of the semiconductor and electronics industries is further projected to drive the increased demand for glass substrates.

Based on type, the glass substrate market has been segmented into borosilicate-based glass substrates, silicon-based glass substrates, ceramic-based glass substrates, fused silica/quartz-based glass substrates, and others. Borosilicate-based glass substrates type is the most widely used type of glass substrates, owing to their superior properties, such as low coefficient of thermal expansion, high chemical resistivity, and high surface strength.

Based on end-use industry, the glass substrate market has been classified into electronics, automotive, medical, aerospace & defense, and solar. The electronics industry is the largest end-use industry segment of the glass substrate market. An increase in manufacturing of 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.

Glass Substrate Market

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for glass substrates. The glass substrate market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the presence of numerous electronics manufacturers in this region. China is expected to account for the largest share of the glass substrate market in the Asia Pacific region in 2022. This market in China is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Major producers of glass substrates such as AGC (Japan), Nippon Sheet Glass (Japan), HOYA Corporation (Japan), LG Chem (South Korea), OHARA Inc. (Japan), IRICO Group New Energy Company Limited (China), and The Tunghsu Group (China) are located in the Asia Pacific region.

The high manufacturing cost of glass substrates acts as a restraint to the growth of the market. However, manufacturers of glass substrates are focused on managing their yields through process control with the aim of optimizing production costs.

Companies operating in the glass substrate market have adopted the expansions strategy to increase their market share and cater to the increasing demand for glass substrate products. For example, in August 2017, Asahi Glass Co. (AGC) started the construction of the 11th generation TFT glass substrate manufacturing kilns in China. This development strategy enabled the company to increase its production capacity and address the growing demand for glass substrates in China.

Companies such as AGC (Japan), SCHOTT (Germany), Corning Inc. (US), Nippon Sheet Glass (Japan), and The Tunghsu Group (China) adopted the strategy of expansions, new product developments, and agreements to enhance their share in the glass substrate market between 2014 and 2017.
