An optocoupler is essentially a passive optical component that can split or combine optical power transmission data from optical fibers. Furthermore, the optocoupler is designed to transfer electrical signals through light waves to enable coupling with electrical isolation between input and output. An optocoupler primarily prevents the fluctuation in voltages, from damaging or distorting transmission components on both sides of the circuit. An optocoupler has a light source, mostly near a LED that converts the electrical input signal into light, a photosensor, and a closed optical channel that detects incoming light and regulates electric current flowing from an external power supply. The sensor can either be a silicon-controlled rectifier, a photoresistor, a phototransistor, a photodiode, or a triac.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global optocoupler market to grow at a CAGR of 8.12% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global optocoupler market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of optocoupler.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Cloud is a virtual and remote data center that stores, manages, and retrieves data or resources without requiring any infrastructure costs. Cloud can be categorized into three divisions: public, private, and hybrid. The public cloud is accessible to the public for some amount of money. The private cloud is restricted to only businesses or organizations. A hybrid cloud is a combination of the public and private cloud.”
According to the report, the growth in Internet bandwidth is fueled by two factors: the proliferation of mobile computing devices such as tablets, smartphones, and wearables with new capabilities and the emergence of disruptive technologies that shift the bandwidth use by altering how users access the network. With the emergence of new mobile telecommunication standards such as 4G and 5G, consumers are now opting for higher bandwidth applications and services. The bandwidth comparison of 1G to 5G technologies is given in the exhibit below.
Further, the report states that one of the biggest growth opportunities for the communication service providers is the multi-dwelling units (MDU) category in the housing filed. Though there has been a different mechan.
