The major drift in the sapphire industry took place when Apple Inc. (U.S.) signed a contract with GT Advanced Technologies (U.S.) worth 578 Million USD, where it was decided that GT Advanced Technologies (U.S.) would manufacture sapphire display cover and camera lens cover for Apple’s products. GT Advanced Technologies (U.S.) serves the Global Sapphire market in Semiconductors with its innovative products and developments. The company has its major focus on the U.S. market and is trying to expand with a fierce competition from its peers such as Rubicon Technology (U.S.), Insaco Inc. (U.S.), and so on. Moreover, sapphire, specifically synthetic sapphire, has several exceptional properties that make it of interest to Apple. The attraction towards sapphire was due to many reasons such as,sapphire is superior to glass, even competing glass material, in several ways. Synthetic sapphire has no color, as it’s a single crystal grown to be optically transparent,making it look very similar to glass. But it’s also extremely hard as it has a nine on the Mohs scale,which means better scratch resistance.With GTAT’s new technology, it was possible to produce lighter, stronger, and optically transparent glass ideally fulfilling Apple’s requirements for its new products.
