This report provides strategic study of the global sapphire substrates market, and the growth forecast for the period 2018 - 2025. The scope of the report includes competitive analysis of various market segments based on wafer diameter, applications, and in-depth cross-sectional scrutiny of the sapphire substrates market across different geographical segments. Sapphire is considered as a gemstone. Its chemical formula is Al2O3 and is a type of corundum. Natural sapphire is primarily used for jewelry while synthetic sapphire is used for various applications such as shatterproof glasses and light emitting diodes (LEDs) among others. Synthetic sapphire is chemically inert and a hard material, having good optical properties. It has a melting point of around 2045ºC and can retain thermal stability up to 1600ºC. Sapphire substrates are used as insulating wafers for various electronic applications. The demand for LEDs has been seeing good growth rate for past few years and in turn has also been promoting the growth of sapphire substrates market.
