Executive Summary

The optical fibre industry consists of three major products starting from downstream to upstream which include fibre preform, optical fibre and optical fibre cable (OFC). Manufacturing of preform (a solid glass rod) is the first step in the making of optical fibres. Optical fibres are drawn out from the heated up preform. OFC is a bundle of optical fibres that is used to carry light signals over long distances.

The global optical fibre market can be segmented on the basis of mode into single mode and multi mode fibres. On the basis of composition the market can be bifurcated into glass optical fibre and plastic/ polymer optical fibre. The market can split on the basis of application into broadcasting, lighting and decoration, mechanical inspections, computer networking, medical/ healthcare industry and defense.

The global optical fibre market is forecasted to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period (2019-2023). The market is supported by various growth drivers such as increase in global internet traffic, spike in number of smartphone users globally, hike in adoption of Fibre to the Home (FTTH), initiatives by governments of various countries to boost OFC deployment, strategic initiatives such as product launches and collaborations undertaken by key players to strengthen their respective optical fibre businesses and cater to surging demand for high bandwidth from customers simultaneously. High cost of OFC deployment and installation barriers of optical fibres are some of the challenges faced by the market.

Evolution of 5G network, increasing popularity of cloud computing, rising number of video on demand (VoD) users and growth in Internet of Things (IoT) installed base are some of the trends in the market that have been captured in this report.
