Market Overview

Scratch-resistant glass is primarily sapphire glass or glass composed of minerals with a chemical coating to prevent scratches. Additionally, some glasses are processed by applying a diamond-like coating to the surface to provide permanent protection. Scratch-resistant glasses are said to be ten times more scratch-resistant than regular glass and are frequently used in watch lenses and other similar objects. Smartphones and tablets, interior architecture, automotive, electronics, and a variety of other industries use such glass. Premium and flagship smartphones have a significant market in Germany, as well as many other developed economies. These devices frequently feature advanced displays made of scratch-resistant glass, such as Corning's Gorilla Glass. Consumers are willing to pay a premium for smartphones with these features, accelerating the adoption of scratch-resistant glass. The desire for better screen protection not only drives up demand for these devices, but it also creates a market for aftermarket screen protectors made of scratch-resistant glass, accelerating the industry's growth.

Driving Factors

The growing need for premium smartphone screens is one of the main factors propelling Germany's scratch-resistant glass sector. Since smartphones are becoming a necessity in today's world, users are looking for gadgets with strong, long-lasting screens that can tolerate regular use and abuse. Glass that resists scratches has become essential in meeting this need. Scratch-resistant glass provides a dependable way to shield screens from scuffs, scratches, and other damage. Smartphone makers are always trying to improve the robustness of their devices.


Restraining Factors

Germany's scratch-resistant glass market faces a number of difficulties, including fierce rivalry and downward pricing pressure from competitors. Many domestic and foreign producers have entered the market as demand for scratch-resistant glass has increased. As a result, there are many companies fighting for market share, creating a very competitive environment. Competition drives down prices even though it can foster innovation and improve the quality of products.


Market Segment

  • In 2023, the polyvinyl chloride segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on type, the Germany scratch-resistant glass market is segmented into polyvinyl chloride, silicone, polyolefins, and others. Among these, the polyvinyl chloride segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. PVC is frequently applied to scratch-resistant glass as a protective layer. The purpose of this coating is to improve the glass's resilience to UV rays, chemicals, and scratches. PVC coatings are favored because they are easy to apply and reasonably priced. They offer an extra degree of defense without sacrificing the glass's optical clarity. The demand for long-lasting and reasonably priced solutions, especially in industrial or automotive applications where great optical clarity is not a top priority, is what motivates the use of PVC coatings on scratch-resistant glass in the German market.


  • In 2023, the automotive segment is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period.

Based on application, the Germany scratch-resistant glass market is segmented into smartphones & tablets, automotive, interior architecture, and others. Among these, the automotive segment is witnessing significant growth over the forecast period. In the automotive industry, windshields and windows are among the main places where scratch-resistant glass is used. Safety is a top priority for German automakers, and durable, shatter-resistant glass is recommended. Scratch-resistant glass is less likely to break into sharp fragments in the event of an accident, lowering the possibility of injuries. The strict car safety standards and laws in Germany are in line with this improved safety feature. Furthermore, by lessening the appearance of dings and damage over time, windshields with scratch-resistant glass contribute to maintaining visibility.
