Increasing Demand for Borosilicate Glass in the Electronic and Semiconductor Industry is Expected to Play a Significant Role

Post Time:Jun 21,2022Classify:Industry NewsView:963

Borosilicate glass is a type of glass in which silica and boron trioxide are the main constituents in the formulation of glass. Borosilicate glass contains eighty one percent silica, twelve percent boric oxide, five percent soda and two percent alumina. Borosilicate Glass Market is projected to reach a valuation of US$ 2.03 Billion in 2022, likely to surge at a vigorous 7% CAGR from 2022 – 2032.

Borosilicate glass is manufactured by melting & combining silica sand, boric oxide, alumina and soda ash. The process of manufacturing depends upon the product geometry. Borosilicate glass has various properties, which include low thermal expansion coefficient, high thermal resistance, high chemical corrosion resistance, high mechanical strength and low gas melting temperature, among others. Owing to these diverse properties, borosilicate glass has a variety of applications ranging from cookware to laboratory equipment. In addition, borosilicate glass is widely used in medical implantable devices as well as electronic devices.

Borosilicate glass is also used in solar panels and in rear windshields in certain automotive vehicles. Borosilicate glass is manufactured under several trade names, which include Pyrex, Borosil, Supermax, Endural, etc. Despite high thermal resistance, borosilicate glass can be cracked due to sudden or uneven temperature variations. Moreover, borosilicate glass cannot be heated with strong alkaline solutions or phosphoric acid, and these are some of the drawbacks associated with the usage of borosilicate glass.

Borosilicate Glass Market: Regional Outlook

Rapid growth of population, along with increasing urbanisation and rise in disposable income, has increased the consumption of consumer & home appliances in the Asia Pacific region.
