The ultra-thin glass market is driven by the increasing demand for flat panel displays. Consumers are demanding bigger displays in liquid-crystal display (LCD) televisions, smartphones, automotive, and tabs; out of these applications, TV screen size is expected to be the biggest force during the forecast period.
