Rapid Adoption of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 Demonstrates Continued Market Leadership

Rapid Adoption of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5

Corning® Gorilla® Glass was created 10 years ago and since its introduction into the market it has experienced rapid success and adoption as the glass of choice for the consumer electronics industry. Used on more than 5 billion devices from 40 major brands, it would be difficult today to find a premium handheld device anywhere in the world without a Gorilla Glass cover.

This remarkably tough product’s fifth generation, Corning Gorilla Glass 5,is enjoying two times the adoption rate of earlier glasses over the same time period. To date, nearly a dozen publicly launched models have featured Gorilla Glass 5, and both premium and intermediate segment device manufacturers have shown a strong interest. We’ve also seen Gorilla Glass 5 called out as a key feature in the flagship models of several top brands.

This rapid adoption comes as no surprise. Gorilla Glass 5 is Corning’s toughest cover glass yet. Its improvements address a common problem for consumers – broken screens resulting from device drops. In fact, according to a recent consumer study, this is the number one complaint with cover glass. That’s why Corning introduced a composition that survives 1.6-meter drops onto rough surfaces up to 80 percent of the time.

While the glass provides superior protection against drops, it also delivers the damage resistance, optical clarity, and touch sensitivity Gorilla Glass is famous for. These attributes are due in part to Corning’s proprietary fusion process, which creates thin-sheet cover glass with pristine surface quality, outstanding optical clarity, and inherent dimensional stability.
