Active Optical Cables: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – In the coming months, GIA will complete an extensive secondary and primary research program involving some of the industry’s leading players and experts. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as the rising adoption of AOCs over copper cables, increasing prevalence of high-speed HDMI AOC models, growing prominence of AOCs in non-data center applications, and AOCs transition towards HDMI and Consumer Electronics segments.
Active Optical Cable (AOC) is a cabling solution that utilizes electrical to optical conversion on cable ends to improve the speed and distance efficiency of cable without compromising on the compatibility with conventional electrical interfaces. Active optical cables find use in a broad range of applications such as high performance computers, data centers, digital signage, PC interconnect, home theatres and mobile devices among others. The growth in the market is largely driven by the increasing adoption of AOCs in digital signage and in consumer electronic segments worldwide, in addition to improved efficiency of AOC over the traditional copper cables with respect to reach, weight and flexibility. Network infrastructure expansion, high performance computing and commercial cloud networks also support growth in the segment.
Digital Signage is the largest end-use application market for AOCs. Factors driving demand in this sector include rising bandwidth requirements for digital signage as well as growing number of digital panels across airports, stadiums, malls and outdoor advertising. Applications of AOCs continue to rise every year with new developments, increasing bandwidth requirements and broader reach. The study estimates Active Optical Cables to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
Developed for vendors, consulting firms and market strategists, among others, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
