Fiber-Optic Cable Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Fiber-Optic Cable Manufacturing

Over the five years to 2015, demand for the Fiber-Optic Cable Manufacturing industry has surged as downstream customers upgraded infrastructure that was delayed during the recession. In addition, the industry will continue to surge forward at light speed over the next five years. Wireless carriers will expand their fiber-optic cable networks at higher rates as more carriers upgrade their networks and consumers increasingly demand high-speed internet on their mobile phones, necessitating more fiber-optic cable purchases. Broadband connections, particularly in rural areas, will also rise during the same period. Together, these trends will push industry demand upward.

This industry manufactures optical-fiber cables. These cables are usually silica or plastic based, with silica fiber-optic cables extending long distances. Fiber-optic cables are used by communications and telecommunications providers to transmit data. Optical-fiber cables are gaining increasing popularity because of their transfer speed and immunity to electromagnetic interference.

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.
