Fiber Optic Products & Applications: A Global Strategic Business Report

Fiber optics industry is expected to grow in spite of high consolidation. Optical Fiber demand is primarily driven by increased demand for broadband Internet connections in North America and China. With surplus manufacturing capacity of optical fiber and centrally regulated tender process, China has emerged as a very price sensitive market. United States represents the largest market for fiber optic components, with an estimated share of 39.02% of the global market in 2007.

Transmitters/Receivers constitute the largest product segment in the worldwide fiber optic components market with estimated sales of US$12.6 billion in 2007. Sales of fiber optic components in US are projected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.98% during the period 2000-2010.

Telecom equipment and associated installation equipment, private data networks and related equipment are expected to boost the worldwide fiber-optic connector sector. Strong rise in quantity and a fall in average prices are also the drivers. Demand for relatively shorter links deployed in local loop and private data networks would fuel the connector consumption in North America. Healthy competition in delivering broadband services to residential customers and businesses fuel the connector consumption in Europe. The trend of telecom liberalization and encouraging national economic polices are stimulating demand in Asia-Pacific and other parts of the world.
