Sapphire Technology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
Sapphires are a type of gemstone formed based off a specific type of aluminum oxide. While they are typically blue in color, there are certain sapphires that can be found in other colors, such as orange or green, while some sapphires may even show two or more colors. There is a wide range of non-ornamental applications for sapphires and sapphire technology. Some of the key uses of sapphire technologies lie in optical and infrared parts, thin electronic wafers, movement bearings and crystals in wristwatches, and insulating substrates. Being one of the two corundrum gem families, sapphires are naturally found in their deposits in Madagascar, East Africa, and North America.
Some of the more common applications of sapphires include their uses in the production of shatter resistant windows and windshields in specialized armored vehicles as well as in military body suits. Sapphire crystals are also used in output windows for Cermax, a type of xenon arc lamps, as it can help tolerate high thermal loads. Sapphire glass provides several key benefits such as being highly resistant to scratches, abrasions, and is vastly stronger than standard optical materials. Sapphire can also be used as a substrate for semiconducting circuits, where thin sapphire wafers are used as insulation to create ICs that are commonly known as SOS. One of the niche uses of sapphire technologies involves monocrystalline sapphire in hip joint endoprosthesis, due to their superbly low wear when combined with certain metals.
Due to their unique and exceptional properties, sapphires have emerged as appropriate materials used across varied applications. Sapphire materials offer high reliability, cost effectiveness, and longer lifecycle. Because they are very high in efficiency, offer a gamut of electric properties, and have better and longer thermal life than other materials, sapphires are also used in electronic devices, display covers, and LED. Thus with the expansion of the consumer electronics industry, the demand for sapphire technology is expected to pace higher.
