What is Driving Demand for Fiber Optic Labels?

Since optical fiber cable is one of the primary medium for transmission of data from one point to the other, hence it is mainly used in telecommunication industry. Telecommunication is the largest end-use industry as its sales goes parallel to the fiber optic cable. Because of the rising usage of mobile devices and the associated bandwidth access, the industry is rapidly expanding.

The telecommunications industry is being considered a key factor for market developments in broadband networks and huge data management. The number of connected devices is increasing continuously, with the expansion of device utilization and connectivity.

Data computing has evolved into a requirement for businesses, with one out of every three switching their operations to the cloud for the sheer flexibility and security advantages it provides.

Since they use fiber optics to provide Internet connectivity to their different access points, these commercial establishments are bolstering the industry. As a result, these businesses are heavily relying on fiber-optics for uninterruptible internet connectivity in order to stay afloat which directly affects the market growth.

Growing Trend of ‘Word from Home’ to Further Augment Fiber Optic Labels Demand

The internet is a worldwide network of interconnected computers. Fiber optics serve as the internet's backbone, with optical fibre cables serving as the medium for transmitting data from one location to another. In 2018, 51.2 percent of the world's population used the internet, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

In 2018, the number of internet users increased by about 45 percent. The growing importance of cloud computing, data transfer and storage, and IoT is driving the use of internet.

According to IEA (International Energy Agency), the number of internet users is expected to increase from 3.6 billion in 2018 to 5.0 billion by 2025. Moreover, the number of IoT connections is expected to increase from 7.5 billion in 2018 to over 25.0 billion by 2025.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the online convergence of everyday devices (mostly machine-to-machine). As the number of connected devices grows, there will be a greater need for higher bandwidth, resulting in the growth of IoT which will directly affect the fiber optic labels market.

Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic started causing disruptions to routine business activities, stakeholders quickly switched to the “Work from Home” model for employees to maintain business continuity. The trend has now become such an integral part of business that many organizations are mulling moving a major chunk of their business to this model in future to save costs.

Thus the growth in telecommunication sector and shifting work trends would further augment the need of critical infrastructure and thus stimulate demand for fiber optic labels.
