Flexible electronics is an idea that has been with us for a while, but is only now beginning to inch towards reality. The concept of displays that can be rolled up and put in a pocket, or solar and lighting panels that conform to contours of a building fabric are attractive ideas, both from aesthetic and practical standpoints. But they will require flexible substrates and while a large share of the flexible electronics and solar panel market will be supported on plastic substrates, NanoMarkets believes that a substantial share of flexible substrate market will be garnered by flexible glass. In addition, we believe that flexible glass has an important role to play in the flexible encapsulation business. Flexible glass brings to the market the familiarity, transparency, rigidity, thermal stability and scratch resistance that conventional plastics cannot offer.
With all this in mind, NanoMarkets is publishing this report analyzing the market for flexible glass over the next eight years. This report examines the flexible glass products currently on the market and where they are likely to generate new revenues. It also discusses where the next wave of flexible glass and similar products will be coming from and what sectors of the display and solar panel industry will be most likely to make use of flexible glass for both substrates and encapsulation. As with all NanoMarkets reports, this report includes an eight-year market forecast with breakouts by types of materials and specific applications.
