Fiber Optics Testing Market

Fiber Optics Testing Companies - UL LLC (US) and Element Materials Technology (UK) are the Key Players

The global fiber optics testing market is expected to grow from USD 283 million in 2020 to USD 433 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period. The fiber optics testing market is growing owing to the increased investments in infrastructure development and surging demand for FTTX. However, most of these industries remained shut during the COVID-19 outbreak. The lesser demand of these applications in the market will impact the fiber optics testing market for the years 2020 and 2021 with its bouncing back in 2022.

Major Fiber Optics Testing Companies include: 

  • UL LLC (US), Element Materials Technology (UK),
  • Intertek (UK),
  • NTS (US),
  • TÜV Rheinland (Germany),
  • VIAVI Solutions (US),
  • Eurofins Scientific (Luxembourg),
  • EXFO (Canada),
  • Fujikura (Japan),
  • L3Harris (US), and
  • Fluke Corporation (US).

These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as product launches, acquisitions, and expansions, to expand their presence in the global fiber optics testing market further. Acquisitions. expansions and new product launches and developments have been the most dominating strategies adopted by major players from January 2017 to May 2020, which helped them to innovate on their product offerings, cope up with the COVID-19 outbreak and broaden their customer base.
