The glass substrate industry is witnessing rapid growth in
technological innovation driven by the market demand for larger size
glasses. Advancement in the size of display glasses or shifting from
one generation of glass to another generation is driven by the need for
bringing about economies of scale in the utilization of these glasses.

So, with increasing demand for larger size LCD glasses, Corning, the leader in the LCD glass
substrate industry, along with Asahi Glass and Nippon Electric Glass are investing in technologies
to fulfill the increasing demand for larger glass substrates. Corning
has in fact started working on Generation 10 glass substrates that will
have the capability of producing 15 42-inch panels as compared to only
eight 42-inch panels that could be realized from Generation 5
substrates.
