About Sapphire Glass
Sapphire glass is a synthetic variant of the naturally available sapphire gemstone. Sapphire glass is industrially made from aluminum oxide, wherein the raw material is fused and processed to produce an extremely hard polycrystalline product. The production of synthetic sapphire had unlocked various applications for this novel material, that otherwise was restricted to decorative use as a rare gemstone. Sapphire glass ranks next only to diamond in terms of hardness and is extremely resistant to scratches. This property of the material is increasingly being explored by various organizations across the world. The major commercial uses of sapphire glass are in the manufacture of smartphone displays, watchmaking, and manufacture of medical, mechanical, and optical equipment and as a bulletproof and ballistic material in safety establishments.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global sapphire glass market to grow at a CAGR of 6.21% in terms of revenue during 2014-2019.
