Beam Expander Market for fiber optics is expected to reach up to $1.29 Billion by 2020.

The fiber optics industry is witnessing an impressive increase in the consumption of the optical elements and components. This has facilitated the development of a strong environment for the increasing consumption of the fiber beam expander lenses (and lens assemblies). There has been a rapid large scale expansion of the fiber optic transport and access networks in the telecommunication industry. The private data communication, cable TV, specialty, and instrumentation segments are also the major drivers for the beam expander market based on fiber optics. The fiber optic beam expanders are used in conjunction with optical isolators, optical circulators, and other devices. They convert divergent beams of radiation or particles, such as light rays, into parallel beams.

Fiber optic beam expander lens assemblies are widely used to covert a beam of parallel light into a divergent output beam of light. In many applications, this divergent beam of light is again converted into a beam of parallel light in order to improve the quality of the beam of light and achieve the desired coherent characteristics of light. They are used in a variety of optical communication components, such as modulators, attenuators, transmitters, pump laser modules, switches/optical cross connects, wavelength selective switches, ROADMs, isolators, circulators, expanded-beam connector assemblies, optical filter modules, DWDM, tunable filters, optical sensors, optical signal processing, integrated/hybrid packaged modules, and other active and passive components & devices. The beam expanders market for fiber optics has been showing a robust growth in the recent years due to their extensive use in the passive optical components, such as couplers, filters, isolators, circulators, certain types of connectors, switch elements, and others.

The players in the fiber optics industry across the globe are competing to develop and incorporate newer technologies and devices in order to sustain in the fierce competition posed by the industry. The beam expander market for fiber optics is currently dominated by the Galilean beam expanders. Features such as the simplicity of design, low cost, and small package size of the Galilean beam expanders, along with their capability to generate high intensity laser beams with variable focal lengths, have made their uses common in a wide range of applications. They are used in Nd: YAG laser machining applications and other high power laser applications, micro drilling, LIDAR, beam condensing, collimation of laser harmonics, cutting of solar cells, and so on. In the Keplerian beam expanders, the intermediate focus produces high-grade reference wave fronts with a homogenous intensity and so, the Keplerian laser beam expanders are used in interferometry and other applications that require an intermediate focal point with a pinhole for spatial filtering.

The devices covered in this report are the optical communication devices, measurement & testing devices, laser delivery & processing systems, LIDAR & remote sensing devices, and others. The applications covered in the report are military & defense, scientific research & instrumentation, medical, industrial, and commercial. The fiber optic beam expander market is studied in depth, with the inclusion of the market segmentation, along with the above mentioned products.

The global beam expander market for fiber optics is largely driven by the telecom & broadband and oil & gas applications.
