The fiber optics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2014 and 2019 to reach a value of $3.0 billion. The demand is increasing and driven by investments in new information technology and telecommunication sectors, upcoming developments and projects in the U.S., China, India, Brazil, and Western and Eastern European countries.

Fiber optic is used in a number of different applications and they range from the long haul intercontinental/transoceanic cables to metropolitan networks, to access networks and local area networks (LANs) in homes or buildings. Each application requires specific fiber optic characteristics.

Asia-Pacific, North America & Europe dominated the market for fiber optics in 2013 and accounted for over 90% of the market share. In telecommunications, fiber optic technology has replaced copper wires in long-distance telephone lines. Broadband demand from 4G, FTTx and LTE are increasing the demand in this sector. Construction of the 3G/4G mobile network and the metropolitan area network will boost the demand in the developing countries.

Telecom & broadband application accounted for more than 55.3% of the global market share in 2013. Telecom & broadband fiber optics market will grow at a healthy growth rate of 5.9% by 2019.

The global market has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years.

The demand in Asia-Pacific is expected to propel by network operators’ efforts to improve connectivity and to cater to the demand arising from 3G/4G usage. The demand for fiber optic in other advanced economies, such as  the U.S., Japan, Germany, and others is also rising due to their efforts to build fiber to-the-Node and fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks. This combination will drive the demand globally for fiber optic by 2019 to 350 million fiber-km.

Fiber optics is the science of transmitting data, voice, and images by the passage of light through thin, transparent fibers. A fiber optic consists of a bundle of glass threads, each of which is capable of transmitting messages modulated onto light waves. It is basically a technology that uses glass (or plastic) threads (fibers) to transmit data. Through the process of total internal reflection, light rays beamed into the fiber can propagate within the core for great distances with remarkably little attenuation, or reduction in intensity. The degree of attenuation over distance varies according to the wavelength of the light and the composition of the fiber.

The use and demand has grown tremendously and the fiber optics applications are numerous. Telecommunication applications are widespread, ranging from global networks to desktop computers. These involve the transmission of voice, data, or video over distances of less than a meter to hundreds of kilometers, using one of a few standard fiber designs in one of several cable designs. Other important applications are oil & gas industry, utilities, private data networks, biomedical, and others. The global fiber optics market is expected to reach a value of $3.0 billion by 2019. It will grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2014 to 2019.

Asia-Pacific is projected to be the biggest market for fiber optics on account of the growing demands from the end-user industries. The growth is due to the increasing demand for optical communication applications and development of economies in the region and also the purchasing power of the people have increased, resulting in a growing demand for consumer products. The European market is projected to grow steadily in the coming years. The continued growth in 4G mobile usage, FTTx applications, and progress in FTTH/FTTC are the main reasons for the development of fiber optics in this region.
