Commenting on the report, an analyst says "Increased use of sapphire glass to manufacture high-end smart phones is one of the major trends upcoming in the sapphire glass market. Major glass display vendors are likely to evaluate the material for use in their devices in the future. For instance, SCHOTT launched a sapphire glass range for various applications and is evaluating sapphire for smartphone displays. Corning is also evaluating sapphire for incorporating certain properties in its Gorilla Glass range. "

According to this sapphire glass market research, there is a rise in production capacities worldwide, especially in China and the US, where small organizations are spearheading the efforts to install new production capacities. Also, large glass vendors such as SCHOTT, Saint-Gobain, and Asahi are increasingly expanding their presence in this business. Further, the report states that the high cost of production and fabrication and limited supplies in the market restrict the use of materials to certain high-end applications such as smartphone displays. The continuous fall in smartphone prices is hindering the adoption of the material in smartphone manufacturing.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive sapphire glass market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors. GT Advanced Technologies, Precision Sapphire Technologies, Rayotek Scientific Inc., Rubicon Technology Inc., Saint-Gobain SA and Swiss Jewel are major companies discussed in this report.

On similar lines, the report Non-Glass Capacitive Sensors Market by Type (Plastic/Polymer -PMMA, PC, PET PETG and Others, ITO Film, Non-ITO Film and Sapphire), Application (Consumer and Commercial) and Geography - Global Trends and Forecast to 2014 - 2020 forecasts capacitive sensor for non-glass surface market to grow at a CAGR of 14.3% from 2014 to 2020. Technological improvements have increased the robustness of touch screen covers but manufacturing as well as cost related challenges have restrained their mass manufacturing. As a result, the market price of these types of non-glass surfaces is five to seven times the market price of the regularly used glass screen covers in capacitive touch screens. There are several important trends which have been driving the technological innovations in the industry since its early days, which, directly or indirectly, drive the capacitive sensors market currently. The major trend is the size reduction of capacitive sensors which enable their integration into smartphones, tablets, PCs, and many other small devices without sacrificing other functionalities.

The study elucidates the situation of capacitive sensors in non-glass surface types and shows the application market of capacitive sensors in consumer electronic applications, commercial electronic applications, and other applications with accurate market metrics. The study clarifies that currently, capacitive sensors for non-glass surface applications' market size is highest for smartphone and tablet and both the applications are expected to grow at a high CAGR during 2014 to 2020.

The "capacitive sensors for non-glass surface" market research study is segmented on the basis of geography into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). Among these, the U.S., Japan, China, the U.K., Taiwan, and South Korea are the highest market sharing countries in the capacitive sensors market.
