Executive Summary

Sapphire is a gemstone variety of the mineral corundum, an aluminium oxide. Trace amounts of other elements such as iron, titanium, chromium, copper, or magnesium can give corundum blue, yellow, purple, orange, or a greenish color.

Generally, sapphires are worn in jewelry. And because of the remarkable hardness of sapphires—9 on the Mohs scale and of aluminium oxide in general, sapphires are used in some non-ornamental applications, including infrared optical components, such as in scientific instruments; high-durability windows; wristwatch crystals and movement bearings; and very thin electronic wafers, which are used as the insulating substrates of very special-purpose solid-state electronics (especially integrated circuits and GaN-based LEDs). Sapphires may be found naturally, by searching through certain sediments or rock formations. They also may be manufactured for industrial or decorative purposes in large crystal boules.

LED displays are thinner, lighter, and offer better color performances compared to backlit liquid crystal displays (LCD). OLED displays are already mass produced for mobile phones and OLEDs will continue gaining market share against LCD technology.

The next evolution is plastic and flexible displays. IDTechEx expects the first flagship phone with a flexible display to ship in 2017. Based on this scenario, the market for plastic and flexible AMOLED displays will rise to $16bn by 2020.

The rise of plastic and flexible displays will be accompanied by a shift from glass substrates to plastic substrates such as polyimide. However, glass-based displays will remain an important technology, especially in TV applications where scale-up and cost reduction are still big challenges. Flat and curved OLED TVs were recently launched by Samsung and LG to critical acclaim. However, manufacturers are hedging their bets by investing in LCD backlights enhanced with quantum dots. These so-called "quantum dot LCD" TVs will be positioned as a cheaper upgrade from existing sets. Nevertheless, the market for OLED TV panels will experience steady growth over the next decade, with a projected 25% CAGR.

The core of the touch screen market is reflected in smartphones and Tablet PCs, both of which will be in trouble in the next three years. The smartphone market has obviously been saturated and slowed down. China exceeds the United States to see the highest smartphone penetration rate. However, the Chinese smartphone market where a person often holds two smartphones is the first one that suffers recession in the world. From January to October of 2014, China's smartphone shipment dropped down 10.4% year on year to 312 million. China's sluggish economy is also a reason for the decline.
