Advanced Displays: The Material Difference

At Corning, we are forming the display-driven future, building on decades of experience in advanced flat-glass manufacturing to help customers push the limits of display form factors and performance. While we believe LCD technology will continue to lead the display market for years to come, technology advancements in OLED and microLED, as well as increasing investment in mid-size fabs, make this a pivotal moment for the industry. In this presentation, we will discuss the technical challenges that advanced glass substrates, processing, and surface treatments are helping to address and the growth opportunities in automotive and other display-adjacent industries that leverage glass science and the display industry’s expertise.
