Ultra-thin glass is those glass whose thickness is below 1-2mm.Chemical strengthening via ion exchange is commonly used to reinforce ultra-thin glass used for high-tech applications.

Hardened ultra-thin glass is scratch-resistant and bendable up to a radius of a few millimeters. The properties of ultra-thin glass such as corrosion resistance, transparency, flexibility, excellent gas and water barrier, and high impact resistance make it suitable for various applications such as flat panel displays, automotive glazing, among others.

Based on application, the ultra-thin glass market is segmented into semiconductor substrate, flat panel displays and touch control devices, automotive glazing, and others.In 2020, the flat panel displays and touch control devices segment dominated the market.

Flat panel displays are video devices that replace the conventional cathode ray tube (CRT) with a thin panel design.Ultra-thin glass is widely used to manufacture flat panel displays such as LCD, LED, OLED screens, smartphone displays, and monitor screens.
