Corning's (GLW) Q4 warning was partly attributed to weak Gorilla Glass shipments, and some DisplaySearch data helps explain the industry trends likely playing a role. Though the firm estimates shipments of "cover glass," of which Gorilla Glass is the most popular kind, will rise 178% Y/Y in 2011, it sees growth falling to just ~25% in 2012, as the pace of its adoption in the mobile device market slows down.
