Dark Fiber Network Operators in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Dark Fiber Network Operators

Largely due to mounting demand for low-latency data transport and exclusive network segments, the Dark Fiber Network Operators industry has grown rapidly over the five years to 2018. Industry operators primarily lease or sell previously installed fiber to a range of markets, including telecommunications and internet-based companies, enabling these companies to manage their own networks. Companies are able to lease or sell installed fiber because supply of wire is higher than demand. As a result, the unused wires are leased or sold to other companies. Continued increases in internet traffic volume due to companies' shifts toward cloud computing and internet streaming by individuals will increase demand for bandwidth. As demand for bandwidth rises, dark fiber operators will need to help companies meet rising demand.

This industry primarily leases unlit (unused) direct fiber-optic networks to third-party organizations. The industry excludes companies that primarily provide lit services and proprietary and traditional cable operators.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
