Polymeric Optical Fiber Market

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

Market Overview


Fiber optics is turning over an integral part of the digital world. Next generation advancement in telecom & data transfer market is expected to boost the optical fiber market across the globe.  Optical fiber is used for long distance communications and data transfer. These fiber works in the mechanism of electromagnetic waves in which these waves carry information or particular set of data and transfer it to different places. On commercial scale these fiber cables are formulated from glass or high quality polymeric materials. Polymeric optical fiber are used and adopted in large scale as it is very flexible and have exceptional mechanical strength at the same time. However the actual cost of glass fibers are lower than the polymeric optical fibers at the manufacturers end, but cost associated with the installation of glass fiber is much higher than the plastic optical fiber due to which plastic optical fiber is inexpensive in nature. In order to enable high bandwidth, high speed data communication, minimum maintenance and greater resistance polymeric optical fiber is gaining attraction worldwide. Polymeric optical fiber is often referred consumer optical fiber as these fiber are commonly find practices in applications such as home networks, car, network, industrial network and in digital home appliances. Also some of the newly formulated per fluorinated polymer fibers are finding its usage and consumption in high speed applications such as building LAN wiring & data center wiring. Some of the other end use where polymeric optical fiber is gaining traction are telecom, Oil & Gas, military & aerospace and medical among others
