Surfaces of materials such as
glass, plastic, metal, and others are prone to scratches. The appearance and
design of the product are of utmost importance in several applications, and
scratches can hamper the beauty. Thus, several manufacturers have developed
scratch resistant materials such as glass, and metal. Scratch resistant glass
is widely used for smartphones, tablets, automobiles, electronics, and many
other products. Along with giving a nicer appearance, scratch resistant glass
also increases the durability, and lifespan of products. Moreover, the demand
for thinner and lighter scratch resistant glass is increasing from the
end-users. Thus, the manufacturers offering scratch resistant glass are
continuously developing innovative scratch resistant glass technologies to
satisfy this demand from the end-users.
pandemic had a fairly negative short-term effect on the scratch resistant glass
market. The spread of the pandemic hampered the sale of smartphones and
automobiles. As the infection spread across the world, many local and national governments
implemented lockdown orders, restricting people from visiting public places,
and closing businesses. Due to these lockdowns, consumers spent more on
essential commodities. Moreover, many electronic stores and vehicle showrooms
were closed during the pandemic. This, in turn, led to lower sales of
electronics, and automobiles that use scratch resistant glass. Nevertheless,
the sale of smartphones and other electronic devices over online stores
increased during the pandemic, driving the demand for scratch resistant glass.
Furthermore, as the pandemic crisis subsides, the demand for scratch resistant
glass is anticipated to be restored to its pre-pandemic state.
The endlessly increasing sale of
smartphones is majorly driving the market growth for scratch resistant glass.
The global shipment of smartphones has nearly tripled over the past decade.
Scratch resistant glass is widely used for the screen and body of smartphones.
Thus, the increasing sale of smartphones increases the sale of scratch resistant
glass. Moreover, the growing adoption of devices such as LED, and LCD panels
across various sectors is further supporting the sale of scratch resistant
glass. LED and LCD panels are used in displays, which are installed with
scratch resistant glass to prevent them from abrasions and maintain higher
visibility. However, the availability of cheaper substitutes such as scratch
resistant coatings and films are anticipated to hinder the market growth. On
the other hand, the R&D activities to develop thinner, lighter, and
cost-efficient scratch resistant glass are offering growth opportunities to the
The global scratch resistant glass
market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of
the World, based on regions. Among these regions, Asia Pacific dominated the
global scratch resistant glass market in 2019. Countries such as China, India,
Japan, and Korea mainly drove the Asia Pacific scratch resistant glass market.
The combined sale of products that use scratch resistant glass such as
smartphones, electronics, and automobiles was higher in these countries
compared to the countries in Europe, and the Americas. Moreover, the growing
population, and improving spending capacity are further supporting the market
growth of scratch resistant glass in the Asia Pacific. North America held the
second-largest share in the global scratch resistant glass market. This is
mainly due to the presence of leading IT, and automotive companies in the
