Cloud Computing and High Bandwidth Demand Drive Global Fiber Optic Connectors Market

Press Release   •   Nov 22, 2016 08:04 EST

Global market for fiber optic connectors has been covered under the scope of this report. Fiber optic connectors (FOC) are used to mechanically connect two optical fibers, thereby permitting light to transmit from the core of one fiber to the other fiber. The global telecommunications system, including the internet is built with fiber optic connectors. These connectors enable the use of optical fibers in outside plant applications, public telecommunications network, and in wiring installations at the customer premises. One of the most beneficial of optical connector is the extremely high bandwidth which allows for increased information carrying capacity. Moreover, usage of these connectors helps to minimize attenuation in the transmission medium. Therefore, traditional copper wires are largely being replaced by fiber optic connectors in the telecommunication networks.

The global fiber optic connectors market is primarily driven by factors such as the rise in demand for high bandwidth and increasing application of fiber optic connectors in the medical sector. High bandwidth is important for applications such as video calling, online gaming, and files downloading. Moreover, due to increase in the number of internet users, greater demand for high bandwidth is being witnessed. Therefore, the telecommunication vendors have gradually moved to optical networking, which is capable of carrying higher bandwidth capacity. Furthermore, large-scale production and technological advancements of fiber optic connectors is also driving the market. New and innovative fiber optic connectors are being developed in order to meet the increasing demands for network bandwidth without increasing the infrastructure cost. Considering these positive factors, the demand for fiber optic connectors is set to rise during the forecast period, i.e., 2015 - 2021.

The global fiber optic connectors market, by types is divided broadly into five major segments into: lucent connector (LC), standard connector (SC), straight tip (ST), multiple-fiber push-on/pull-off (MPO/MTP), and others. In terms of revenue, lucent connectors were the largest contributor to the market, followed by standard connectors in 2014. LCs are half the size of standard connectors and is highly favored for single-mode fibers due to its efficient performance. Lucent connectors have also been found to replace the standard connectors in the corporate networking environment because of their smaller size. The market for LC is expected to show substantial growth during the forecast period.

The global fiber optic connectors market by applications is bifurcated into five segments namely: telecom industry, datacom, DWDM system, lasers, and others. The telecom industry and datacom sector are the major application areas of fiber optic connectors and they are positively impacting the growth of this market globally. Fiber optic connectors provide unmatched transmission bandwidth along with very low latency. Therefore, they have become a very popular transmission medium for high data rate and long-distance transmission in the telecommunications network. Rapid growth of the internet and cloud computing applications has resulted in data center network bandwidth requirements. Fiber optic technology plays a critical role in data center operations for intra-data center connectivity with a warehouse-scale computer. In addition, application of fiber optic connectors in local area networks is also set to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period.
