Fiber Optics Market: Overview

Global Fiber Optics Market worth USD 4.8 billion is anticipated to witness significant CAGR of 7.6% in the forecast period 2019-2025. The science of transmitting data, voice, and images by the passage of light from one point to another. Fiber optics acts as the spine of the Internet, an optical fiber cable is used as the medium for transmitting information from one point to another. The increasing demand for the faster Internet has encouraged various companies to activate the transition to FTTH, which enables high-speed internet access with faster voice and video services. Fiber optics cables are at the forefront of providing speed using the speed of light.

The demand has increased as both commercial and personal use of technology has grown highly used to the instant nature of connectivity. The growing opportunities in numerous applications like healthcare, telecommunications Military and many more are boosting the market growth of fiber optics. The market is majorly driven by the high bandwidth communication for long distance via optical fiber. Fiber optic technology has effectively replaced copper wire in long-distance telephone lines and used to link PCs within local area networks.  Owing to the demand for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed, high-data-rate applications has shifted the global fiber optics market, dramatically, across the globe.

Multi-Mode fiber optic segment holds the largest market share of the Fiber optics market in terms of revenue during the forecast period

On the basis cable type, the Fiber Optics market is divided into Single mode and Multi-Mode fiber cable. Multi-Mode is projected to be the leading segment of the entire fiber optic market. Owing to applications which require high bandwidth, along with the proliferation of connected devices. The multi-mode fiber cable is used for short distance installation due to the high dispersion and attenuation rate. The quality of the signal is reduced over long distances. This application is typically used for short distance, data and audio/video applications in LANs and connections within buildings or remote office in close proximity to one another. For long distance installation, Single-mode fiber cable are the best options. This application is typically used in long distance, higher bandwidth runs by Telcos, CATV companies, and Colleges and Universities.

Among applications, the telecom segment is projected to dominate the Fiber optics market during the forecast period

Based on application, the fiber optic market is bifurcated into Telecom, Oil & Gas, Military & Aerospace, BFSI, Medical, Railway, and Others. Telecom Segment is the leading application of optic fiber market and anticipated to dominate the market over the forecast period 2019-2025. Owing to the rising technology adoption in communication and data transmission services. Fiber optics is a foremost building block in the telecommunication structure. The high information-carrying capability, or bandwidth, of fiber makes it the perfect choice for transmitting signals to subscribers.

Big portion of the telecommunications business is comprised of equipment makers manufacturing products that make and/or route connections from point-to-point via a central office location. Owing to persistent analysis & development activities and the escalating demand for high bandwidth fiber optic cable for communication and data services. The high demand for optical communication and sensing applications for various purposes provides avenues for market growth. Additionally, the growing awareness of the advantages of adopting technology is further propelling market growth.

Asia Pacific accounts for the largest market size in the global fiber optics market during the forecast period.

Geographically, the fiber optics market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Asia-Pacific is the leading region during the forecast period 2019-2025. Due to increased technological advancements, large-scale adoption in IT & telecommunication sector. Additionally, the increasing application of fiber optics in the medical sector is also propelling the growth across countries such as China, Japan, and India. Installation of the entire system is a labor-intensive process, especially, the installation of the network, for underground and undersea connections, is one of the costliest and tedious procedures. The global fiber optics market is majorly driven by the pursuit of high bandwidth communication and growing opportunities in the healthcare, manufacturing, and telecommunication sector along with increasing government funding in the development of network infrastructure, fueling the market globally
