The optical transceiver market is projected to grow from USD 7.0 billion in 2021 to USD 14.3 billion by 2026; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.2% from 2021 to 2026. Increase in adoption of smart devices and rising data traffic are facilitating the growth of optical transceiver market. Increase in adoption of 5G would further increase data traffic which will create demand for high-speed transceivers in data center application, these factors are expected to promote new opportunities in the optical transceivers market and hype the sales as well. Meanwhile, recent research & developments in ultra-high-speed (800G) and coherent optical transceivers are also expected to drive the market.
Although the optical transceiver market is growing at a steady pace, it is moderately competitive owing to the presence of several key global players, as well as several new players playing a key role in the growth of the market. Key strategies adopted by these players to enhance their product portfolios, increase their market share, and expand their presence in the market mainly include product launches and deals (acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, and strategic alliances). For instance, in March 2020, II-VI introduced 400G CFP2-DCO, its first module to support high-performance 400 Gbps coherent transmission in a pluggable form factor for high-speed backbone networks and data center interconnects. Each module was designed to transport up to 400 Gbps of data over a single wavelength using 64 Gbaud 16QAM modulations and be tuned to 64 wavelength channels on a 75 GHz grid, enabling a total transmission capacity of up to 25.6 Tbps over a single fiber. In August 2020, InnoLight (China) partnered with Chengdu Shuhan Technology (China) and announced four major application solutions at exhibit CIOE 2020. This included a comprehensive product line for interconnection within and between data centers; optimized solutions for 5G prequels, mid-pass and backhaul; coherent optical communication module; and improved market layout to provide access network high-speed optical device optical modules a full range of solutions.

II-VI offers Finisar transceivers and transponders for datacom and telecom applications with patented digital diagnostics. These transceivers are compliant with Ethernet, fiber channel, InfiniBand, SONET/SDH/OTN, CPRI, OIF, and PON standards and operate at data rates in excess of 100 Gbps. They are capable of distances ranging from very short reach within a data center to campus, access, metro, and long-haul reaches, by utilizing a broad portfolio of internally designed and fabricated optical components such as 850 nm VCSELs, DFB lasers, EML lasers, wavelength-tunable lasers and coherent photonic integrated circuits. Their products also feature outstanding performance over extended voltage and temperature ranges, while minimizing jitter, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and power dissipation. In March 2021, it announced the acquisition of Coherent (US), with the vision of creating a global leader together in photonic solutions, compound semiconductors, and laser technology and systems with approximately USD 4.1 billion in annual revenue, leveraging disruptive technology platforms operating at scale to address a combined available market of approximately USD 25 billion. II-VI and Coherent aim to create a greater scale to address megatrends at a global scale, accelerate growth through complementary platforms, and increase competitiveness with combined scale across the entire value chain.
In June 2021, II-VI announced that it would virtually demonstrate, at The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) 2021, 400/800G transceivers that would enable next-generation 25.6T and 51.2T data center switches. The demonstration, shown in a video at II-VI’s digital booth, would showcase a broad range of transceiver configurations, reaches, and form factors, each supporting the breakthrough 100 Gbps PAM4 electrical interface compatible with the next-generation 25.6T and 51.2T switch ASICs.
II-VI is headquartered in Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, with RD&E, manufacturing, and sales facilities worldwide. II-VI has operations across 18 countries with 75 global locations. Its major subsidiaries are Beijing Lasertech Co. Ltd. (China), Finisar Australia Pty. Ltd. (Australia), Finisar Brasil Suporte De Vendas Ltda. (Brazil), Finisar Daejeon Co. Ltd. (South Korea), Finisar Germany GmbH (Germany), Finisar Japan Ltd. (Japan), Finisar Sweden AB (Sweden), Finisar Technology India Pte. Ltd. (India), II-VI Laser Enterprise Ltd. (UK), II-VI Vietnam Co. Ltd. (Vietnam), and II-VI Laser Enterprise Philippines Inc. (Philippines).
Broadcom (US) is expanding its business by adopting inorganics & organic strategies. For instance, in June 2021, Broadcom announced that advanced 200Gb EML optics would be available in the second half of 2021 to address cost and power consumption challenges for next-generation 800Gb and 1.6Tb data center applications. Broadcom is focusing on expanding high-speed optical transceiver business; as a result, in September 2020, it launched the industry’s first 64Gbps fiber Channel optical transceiver, that is being qualified for use in Brocade switches and Emulex adapters for end-to-end Gen 7 performance; it also launched the 400G optical modules in the industry in 2019. It is focusing on the expansion of its markets such as in 5G, communication, automotive electronics, smart accessories, and smart home markets. With the advent of the 5G era, telecom infrastructure development would also take place. Increasing penetration of 5G would increase data traffic in data centers, which would drive the demand for upgrading data center specifications that will bring the next growth opportunity for the company for the optical transceiver market.
Broadcom reacquired Avago (US) business from Foxconn Interconnect Technology (Taiwan) in November 2019. The fiber optics transceiver and coherent products of Broadcom are now part of the Foxconn Interconnect Technology (Taiwan) product portfolio. The combined strength of both companies would help to expand its market presence. Broadcom is expanding its business by adopting inorganics strategies. In November 2019, Broadcom announced the acquisition of the Symantec Corporation Enterprise Security Business (US), under which Broadcom purchased certain assets and assumed certain liabilities of the Symantec Corporation Enterprise Security business (the Symantec Business) for USD 10.7 billion in cash, on a cash-free, debt-free basis. The company reaches 26 countries through its sales network, with 70 global locations and has operations across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia. Its major sales offices are located in India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Germany, and Japan.
