Global Metallic Glass Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% in the next few years

A metallic glass is a solid metallic material, usually an alloy, with a disordered atomic-scale structure. Most metals are crystalline in their solid state, which means they have a highly ordered arrangement of atoms. Metallic glasses are non-crystalline, and have a glass-like structure. But unlike common glasses, such as window glass, which are typically electrical insulators, metallic glass has good electrical conductivity. There are several ways in which metallic glass can be produced, including extremely rapid cooling, physical vapor deposition, solid-state reaction, ion irradiation, and mechanical alloying. Currently metal glass has been widely used in sport products, electronic products, pharmaceutical and defense and other fields.

Stronger than steel or titanium – and just as tough – metallic glass is an ideal material for everything from cell-phone cases to aircraft parts. 

Metallic glasses, which were first discovered at Caltech in 1960 and later produced in bulk form by Johnson’s group in the early 1990s, are not transparent like window glass. Rather, they are metals with the disordered atomic structure of glass. While common glasses are generally strong, hard, and resistant to permanent deformation, they tend to easily crack or shatter. Metals tend to be tough materials that resist cracking and brittle fracture—but they have limited strength. Metallic glasses, Johnson says, have an exceptional combination of both the strength associated with glass and the toughness of metals.
