Market Overview:
The global flexible glass market reached a value of US$ 1.35 Billion in 2020. Flexible glass refers to an ultra-thin glass substrate that can bend multiple times without breaking. It exhibits similar properties to that of a rigid glass, such as high strength, temperature stability, durability, rigidity and scratch resistance. Rolled glass is one of the commonly used flexible glass, which is widely used in the manufacturing of consumer electronics, such as smartphones, lightings and digital displays. Flexible glass is also used to produce automobile windowpanes, portable electronics, solar panels and construction interiors to minimize their weight, increase the aesthetic appeal and improve overall durability.

Significant growth in the consumer electronics industry across the globe represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Flexible glass is extensively used in the display screens of smartphones, laptops, curved monitors, televisions and tablets for superior elasticity, flexibility, scratch resistance and enhanced aesthetic appeal. In line with this, there is an increasing consumer preference for wearable and portable devices in gaming, entertainment, sports and health and fitness applications, thereby favoring the market growth. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of flexible glass to manufacture automobile and solar panel components is also driving the market growth. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of lightweight and roll-on glasses, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are using novel plastic and metal substrates, including polyethylene terephthalate (PET), to manufacture cost-effective flexible glass. Other factors, including an increasing emphasis on glass material recycling, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global flexible glass market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
