Flexible Glass Market Report 2013 and Forecast to 2021

Flexible Glass Market Report 2013 and Forecast to 2021

Dublin, Nov. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pc7w72/flexible_glass) has
announced the addition of the "Flexible Glass Markets, 2013 and Beyond" report
to their offering.

Flexible glass is ultrathin glass that can - as the result of its thinness -
be stored and used in roll form. The selling point of flexible glass is that,
like plastic-based films, it can, at least in theory, provide a lighter
weight, lower cost alternative to rigid glass, yet deliver the superior
barrier performance, transparency, temperature stability, and familiarity of
glass.

Flexible glass has a role to play in reducing costs and improving
marketability through enabling the production lighter weight products.
Enabling lighter weight products is particularly important in mobile computing
applications like smart phones and tablets, but it is also of critical
importance in many photovoltaics (PV) applications, particularly
building-integrated PV.

Flexible glass is emerging as a leading candidate for encapsulation of
sensitive electronics, particularly in OLED displays, OLED lighting, and
organic and dye-sensitized cell PV applications. Flexible glass can enable
encapsulation with higher performance, and potentially easier to implement,
than some advanced multilayer barrier systems proposed for use in PV and
displays.
