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 in recent years. Over the past five years, industry players have added route miles to their networks through acquisitions, largely because of the high cost of installing new cables. This trend is anticipated to continue over the next five years. Consequently, the number of industry enterprises is forecast to decline over the period. Meanwhile, growing corporate profit and content delivery services will underpin industry revenue growth, while pricing difficulties associated with long-term contracts and mounting external competition will temper the industry's performance.

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.
