About Cover Glass

Cover glass is thin, lightweight glass material often used in the displays of portable electronic devices such as all-in-one (AIO) PCs, smartphones, tablets, and portable navigation devices. Cover glass manufacturers focus on incorporating features like durability, scratch resistance, and damage resistance to gain a competitive advantage in the market. Display device manufacturers attach high significance to cover glass in order to enhance touchscreen sensitivity and increase durability.

The cover glass manufacturing process is labor intensive, as the scope for automation is minimal. The yield rates highly depend on the skill and experience of manufacturers in the industry. During the production of cover glass, the required raw materials, temperature, and time of salt bath (used for the strengthening of glass) are decided. Following this process, cover glass undergoes reinforcement impregnation for physical processing, which involves grinding, cutting, and polishing.

The analysts forecast the global cover glass market to grow at a CAGR of 11.11% during the period 2016-2020.
