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. The growing adoption of sapphire glass in electronics application is expected to further drive the growth of the market in the region. In accordance to India Cellular & Electronics Association (ICEA), India has the competence to knock the door of a value of US$ 100 billion in manufacturing of laptops and tablets by 2025. According to Invest India, the medical device sector is likely to reach US$65 billion by 2024 and also expected to export medical devices approximately US$10 billion by 2025. Thus, increasing exportation and manufacturing of electronic devices is also increasing the demand for scratch resistance glass in upcoming years.

Scratch Resistant Glass Market Drivers
Increasing Adoption of Advanced Technology
Increasing adoption of advanced technology by smartphone, smart watch, tablets, and LED manufactures is expected to grow the growth of scratch resistant glass market. Sapphire glass provides clarity with high quality, screen protection, damages protection, and high durability. India’s big tech companies innovated a new gadget like smart watch FitX pro that incorporates a variety of features such as high quality and extreme durability. FitX pro watch works such as health monitor, fitness band, to measure blood pressure, blood oxygen level, heart rate, and BPM (beats per minute). However, increasing demand for scratch resistant glass for new technology and polycarbonates lenses from sunglasses industry will boost the consumption of scratch resistant glass.
Regular Creative Promotions in Electronics Market
Regular creative promotions in electronic equipment such as 5G smartphones and anti-resistant smart watch is expected to grow the market growth of scratch resistant glass market. China is developing 6G smartphone in coming years, which will increase the consumption of smartphone. With high consumption of new technologies, the market demand will be increasing due to manufacturers are used soda lime silicate glass in smartphones, smart watches and LEDs for high clarity and extreme durability. Additionally, production of new technology along with production of smart gadgets will increase the demand of the scratch resistant glass market. According to India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), Television industry in India is projected to reach Rs. 955 billion (US$ 13.66 billion) by 2021 and 1,227.34 billion (US$ 17.56 billion) by 2022. Hence, increasing demand of technologies will also increasing usage of scratch resistance glass market.
Scratch Resistant Glass Market Challenges
High Production Cost
Regular innovations can hamper the growth of the market of scratch resistant glass market as scratch resistant glasses are expensive more than normal glasses. Also, polycarbonate lenses are more expensive than plastic glasses and more cost effective than Trivex lenses due to excellent durability.
