Corning worked with SHARP to develop technology for the Liquid Crystal Display market.

Glass has been key to the advancement of display technologies since the flat panel display industry was created 35 years ago. In 1982, Corning worked with SHARP to develop technology for the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) market. Since then, glass has been integral to display technologies.

Now, we’re seeing more glass being used to enable next-gen display technology, and more displays being used in applications beyond traditional consumer electronics.

From automotive interiors to smartphone cover glass and desktop monitors, glass continues to shape the future of the display industry.

At the Society for Information Display (SID) Display Week in Los Angeles, Calif., May 21 through 26, Corning showcased how it is leveraging its deep material science expertise to introduce Corning’s glass technologies to new applications across three of Corning’s five key market access platforms – display, automotive, and mobile consumer electronics.

"This is the Glass Age – and glass is continuing to shape the future of the display industry."

Display Market

Corning is no stranger to the display market. In fact, Corning is a long standing participant in the SID Conference – where we continually showcase our advanced glass solutions.

Corning’s Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Display Technologies, John Zhang, spoke about the integral role of glass in the future of display technologies in his keynote remarks. His message was straight forward – this is the Glass Age – and glass is continuing to shape the future of the display industry.

“Based on market research from IHS, we expect the total display glass market to grow to about 6.5B ft2 by 2021," said Zhang. He also discussed the trends in the display market, with one of the largest being demand for large-size TVs.

In fact, TV screen size is expected to be the biggest driver of area growth from 2016 to 2021, according IHS data. Additionally, IHS Markit predicts LCD will continue to dominate the TV panel sector “for the foreseeable future.”

Corning Corporate Fellow, Dr. Adam Ellison, noted, “We’re continuing to advance LCD technology and have introduced a new light-guide plate material called Corning Iris™ Glass.”

Recognized as the SID 2016 component of the year, Iris Glass light-guide plates (LGPs) allow designers to eliminate structural components, and enable thinner sets at cost parity to thicker, plastic LGP sets.

Iris Glass enables crisp, vibrant images by distributing light evenly through an edge-lit LCD display. This is an example of how Corning is innovating to add another piece of advanced glass to the traditional display glass stack across multiple applications.

"Now we’re using this premium material to enhance the way we interact with our cars.”

Automotive Market

One of the highlights of Corning’s SID 2017 presence was a dashboard prototype featuring Corning® Gorilla® Glass for Automotive Interiors. This prototype showcased Corning’s vision for the future of automotive interior technology.

“Glass has transformed our relationships and daily interactions with smartphones, and now we’re using this premium material to enhance the way we interact with our cars,” said Fabio Salgado, program manager, Corning Automotive Interiors.

At the Automotive Display Conference, Salgado discussed how Corning’s innovations in thin, tough, 3D cold formed cover glass and new surface treatments are positioned to meet emerging automotive trends.

Consumers want cars that are cleaner, safer, and more connected. To address these trends, Corning is leveraging its core strengths and decades-long leadership in three markets – display, automotive and cover glass to create new innovations for vehicle interiors.

Mobile Consumer Electronics Market

Corning’s glass solutions play important roles within and on the cover of mobile consumer electronics. At SID, Corning showcased Lotus NXT™ Glass for both rigid and flexible OLED applications.

The recently launched Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ contain a flexible OLED panel, enabled by Corning’s Lotus NXT Glass as the carrier glass.

Also featured was Corning’s industry-leading cover glass, Corning® Gorilla® Glass. Used on nearly 5 billion devices from 40 major brands, it would be difficult today to find a premium handheld device anywhere in the world without a Gorilla Glass cover.

New this year, Corning Precision Glass Solutions offered high-precision wafer and panel format glass-based solutions targeting a variety of applications, including consumer electronics and the Internet of Things.

These semiconductor packaging technologies enable higher speeds, slimmer form factors, and enhanced optical performance. At the trade show, the team showcased a number of glass samples optimized for microelectronics, MEMS packaging, augmented reality applications, and more.
