When flexible glass was originally introduced in the market, it seemed to be a miracle material, one that combined the virtues of plastic and glass. However, during the year 2013, flexible glass demand has begun to decline. Initially there was an ambitous talk of millions of flexible mobile displays based on flexible glass substrates and cover glass, which have resulted in more restrained projections in which initial uses for flexible glass are more niche-like such as batteries, capacitors and sensors. The recent gorilla glass announced by Corning shows that the cover glass requirements for next-generation displays may be more curved than flexible.
