Fiber Optics Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Fiber Optics Market: Summary

The Global Fiber Optics Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 10.8 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 8.1%.

Fiber Optic is refers to a medium and the technology related with the transmission of information, as a light pulses with a glass or plastic fiber. It is also known as optical fiber cables which is similar to an electrical cable, with one of more optical fibers which are being used to carry light. Whereas, it is used for large distance as well as for high performance data networking. However, it being mostly used in telecommunication services such as telephones and internet television.

Hence, fiber optics is mostly used in broadcasting as well as for electronics to provide an advance connections and performance. Also, these can be installed to support the long distance connections between computer networks in various areas.

Fiber Optics Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand for Fiber to the X (FTTX)

With the rising demand for Fiber to the X (FTTX) is witness to boost the growth of the market in the projected period. Whereas, the fiber has evolved an important components for network architectures, with its ability to accommodate great bandwidth with high speed. However, the high definition video need large number of bandwidth than a standard definition video. Also the companies such as Amazon Prime and Netflix is need at least 25 Mb/s speed for the high quality content. For these FTTH and FTTB is needed to provides an internet access will which lead to drive the fiber optics market.

Hence, the Internet of Thing (IoT) is an interconnection for a computer devices, which includes video projectors and printers. These also required a high speed internet services to work efficiently, as fiber act as optical medium for transfer information which may boost the fiber optics market in the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Wireless Communication Systems

One of the major key concern of the fiber optics market is the wireless communication systems and the Covid-19 Pandemics which may restraining factor for the growth of the market. Whereas, the wireless communication system helps to transmit data form one end to another with the microwave radio spectrum. However, it required a less cost for installation as compared to the fiber optic, which may create a challenging factor for the market growth. Also, major advantages of Radio Frequency (RF) and Free Space Optical (FSO) is their non-interference with each other. Hence, both the systems can be used together to improve the performance of the application.

Furthermore, the wireless communication systems lead to get more benefits then the fiber optics, which will lead to hinder the growth of the fiber optic market in the forecast period.
