Global Fiber Optic Test Equipment (FOTE) Market 2015-2019

About FOTE

Growing use of optical fibers by the telecom, oil and gas, and military and defense industries is driving the global FOTE market. Data transfers are a critical part of a business operation as companies need information to design, build, and develop their business strategies. When a signal is sent through optical fibers, signal loss is inevitable. A simple measurement of the output signal and input signal does not suffice because the coupling of signals into an optical fiber may also result in some unknown losses. Optical test equipment or optical measuring instruments are designed to measure and characterize the physical attributes of light, which is the basic currency in fiber optic networks.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global FOTE market to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% over the period 2014-2019.
