Optical Fiber Market

Market Insights on Optical Fiber covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Optical Fiber Market : Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028


The technology that exploits & uses the light & its properties by the modulation of light signal along with data or voice and transfers it through a fiber with the help of TIR (Total Internal reflection) is known as optical fiber technology.

An optical fiber is primarily used to transmit data over long distances and highly preferable in long distance communication. In the commercial marketplace, an optical fiber is creating its demand space & acting as an integral part of this digitalization generation.

With properties like high-speed data transmission, high bandwidth, no data loss, greater resistance, and minimum maintenance, an optical fiber is gaining attraction across the globe. Novel advancement in the data transfer & telecom market is expected to fuel the adoption of optical fiber across the globe. Optical fibers work on the basic principle mechanism of electromagnetic waves. These electromagnetic waves carry specific information & data in the form of data packets & further transfer it from one place to another.

Optical fibers are available in two types in the commercial market i.e. single mode optical fiber and multi-mode optical fiber. Multimode optical fiber is generally designed and developed for short distance communication such as digital surveillance, broadcasting to name a few as it has better noise resistance properties whereas single mode optical fiber is designed a& implemented in a long-range transmission network.

Glass, high-quality plastics & high purity silica are adopted in very large scale for the fabrication of optical fibers.

Optical Fiber Market: Market Dynamics

With growing application universe & demand from end-use industry, the optical fiber market is showing robust growth and is expected to create new horizons in the forecast period. There are many factors hidden behind the promising growth and adoption of optical fibers.

Growing demand for high-speed transmission along with minimum losses has created the demand space for the implementation of the optical fibers. The increasing needs for better network services & networking and increasing penetration of broadband & fiber net connection in developing countries are acting as one of the prime factors for the adoption of optical fibers.

Increasing activities in R&D by the major optical fibers manufacturers for the development of novel technologies and materials in the optical fiber universe is expected to boost the market. Likewise, the rising awareness for the positive results of adopting the optical fiber is further driving market growth.

Few more factors that facilitate the demand for optical fiber across the globe are growing demand for the optical communication network and demand for cost-effective, power efficient and high level of integration of the IT sector.

However, some forces such as high investment, tedious installation of optical fiber network in offshore terrain and labor-intensive process pose challenges for the Optical Fibers adoption in the commercial market.
