Market Insight

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.


The COVID-19 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 market players.

 

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 region.
