Optical Communication and Networking Market by Component (Fiber, Transceiver, Amplifier, Switch, Splitter, Circulator), Technology (WDM, SONET, and Fiber Channel), Application (Telecom, Data Center, and Enterprise) and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023
“Optical communication and networking market projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% between 2017 and 2023”
The optical communication and networking market is expected to grow from USD 15.11 billion in 2017 to USD 24.12 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 8.1% between 2017 and 2023. The growth of this market is driven by the rising adoption of cloud-based services and virtualization, and increasing internet penetration and data traffic. The major restraint for this market is the high initial investment and increasing network complexity.
“Optical communication and networking market for fiber channel technology estimated to grow at the highest CAGR”
The market for fiber channel is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Fiber channels ensure that all storage data arrives at its network destination without loss at extreme throughput and low latency while operating at high utilization rates without data collisions or the need for retransmission.
“Optical communication and networking market for optical switches to hold the largest share of the market during the forecast period”
The market for optical switches is expected to lead the market between 2017 and 2023. Data communication networks make use of optical fibers due to their large bandwidth requirement. Optical switches are used in fiber optic transmission systems for the development of the optical network. Optical switches enable reduction in the number of network equipment, increase the switching speed, and reduce power consumption.
“Optical communication and networking market in APAC to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”
The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023 owing to the extension of the network in China, Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, India, and other developing countries in APAC. The APAC region is the largest producer as well as consumer of smartphones, laptops, TVs, and various other data-generating devices across the globe. This makes it one of the largest consumers of the Internet, and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
