Fiber Optic Component Market to Remain Lucrative During 2017 – 2025
Fiber optics is the technology or medium used for the transmission of data in the form of light pulses through transparent fibers such as glass or plastic strand. The components that form the fiber optic networking system are called fiber optic components. Fiber optic components are becoming the core of the telecommunication industry and advancements in cabling technology has resulted in the significant growth of fiber optic components. Typical fiber optic components include coupler/splitters, transceivers, filter, isolator, WDM multiplexer, optical circulator, amplifier, and various other functional modules.
The main drivers of growth of the fiber optic component market include rapid increase in deployment of data centers. This is majorly due to the increasing demand for cloud based solutions within enterprises mainly to drive down costs related to IT infrastructure, reduce carbon footprint, and reduce the cost and time related to IT support and maintenance. Also, growing internet penetration, increased data traffic, and rising demand for bandwidth and reliability is also expected to boost the overall global fiber optic component market during the forecast period. The advent of smart cities and the increasing adoption of internet of things especially in industries such as manufacturing, utilities, retail, automotive and many more is expected to help in the growth of the fiber optic component market. Fiber optic components tend to be prone to physical damage and transmission losses, acting as one of the major restraints affecting the growth of the fiber optic component market globally. However increasing deployment of VOIP, LTE, and advancements in 5G network are creating huge opportunities in the fiber optic component market.
