Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Fiber Optics Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Fiber Optics Market: AFC, Corning, Furukawa Electric, Fujikura, Optical Cable, Prysmian, Sterlite and Yangtze Optical Fibre & Cable.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “IoT is an ecosystem encompassing electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity. IoT involves M2M communication, enabling devices to exchange information without the need for any human-to-human or human-to-computer interactions. IoT is driving demand for connected devices, which, in turn, significantly increase bandwidth requirements.”

According to the report, the growing demand for increased network bandwidth is the primary growth driver for this market. With the proliferation of mobile computing devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables with new capabilities, and the emergence of disruptive technologies that shift the bandwidth usage, the need for fiber optics is envisaged to increase rapidly during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by vendors in the market is the high initial investment required to deploy optical networks.
