Lotus XT Display Glass is a specially formulated Corning glass that can be used in the high temperature manufacture of LCD and OLED screens. Manufacturers are pushing to add pixels to their display and high temperatures are needed in the manufacture of higher density displays. Corning claims that the intrinsic thermal consistency of Corning Lotus XT Glass allows it to retain its shape and quality during high-temperature processing.
Display glass accounted for about 36% of GLW's revenues last year. The market for high resolution displays is expected to grow at 47% annually. Corning is positioned to provide advanced glass for use in high res displays.
