Growth Factors

Rising penetration of internet for supporting the growth of connected devices drives the demand for fiber optics prominently. Fiber optics is the backbone of internet, as they are used for transmitting information from one end to another. As per the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), 51.2% of the world’s population was using internet in the year 2018 and the projected rise in the number of internet users in 2018 was nearly 45%. In addition, IEA (International Energy Agency) has predicted that the number of internet users will surpass 5 Bn by 2025. Prominent growth in Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud-based services are the prime factors that proliferates the growth of internet users across the globe.

Besides this, increasing application of wireless devices and communication system may hinder the market growth. Low cost of installation along with non-interference of different frequencies propels the demand for wireless communication system across the world. Nonetheless, rising investment in the broadband network infrastructure FTTx anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the coming years.

Regional Snapshots

In 2019, the Asia Pacific led the global fiber optics market with the largest revenue share and expected to forecast lucrative growth aspects by retaining its leading market position. Strong investment in network infrastructure development is prime factor behind the significant growth of the region. China was the largest contributor to the Asia Pacific fiber optics market in the year 2019.

However, India and other developing nations register high growth rate among the other Asian countries due to rapid penetration of IoT and smart devices. IoT market in India is poised to reach US$ 15 billion by the year 2020, accounting for nearly 5% of the global market. The country provides tremendous opportunity for the startups and investors to show their keen interest in the emerging market of IoT. The cumulative investment is predicted to be around US$ 60 million between years 2014 and 2016. In the similar fashion, Rest of Asia Pacific also offers significant opportunity for the fiber optics market over the forecast period. The prime reason behind the significant growth are increasing investment in embedded computing, lifestyle/wearables, connected homes, industrial internet, and many more segments.

Key Players & Strategies

The global fiber optics market offers lucrative growth prospects for the market players owing changing trend and introduction of new technologies create new requirements for advanced fiber optic cables and other communication modes. Fiber optic manufacturers increasingly focus on product development and their regional expansion. For instance, in March 2018, Corning Inc. launched Corning TXF Optical Fiber that enable high-speed transmission of data over longer span for improved network flexibility along with low cost of the network.

Some of the key players operating in the market are Optical Cable Corporation (OCC), Corning Incorporated, OFS Fitel, LLC, Sterlite Technologies Limited, AFL, Prysmian Group, Finolex Cables Limited, Birla Furukawa Fiber Optics Limited, and Yangtze Optical Fiber and Cable Co., Ltd. (YOFC)among others.
