Global Fiber Optic Cable Market: Industry Development Scenario and Forecast to 2023

Press Release

Fiber optic cables are high-speed data transmission cables that transmit data via light waves which enables them to transmit information at the speed of light. Fiber optic cables use fiber optics technology that uses glass or plastic threads (fibers) to transmit the data. Each cable consists of these glass or plastic threads capable of carrying messages in the form of light beams. A fiber optic cable comprises three parts: core, cladding, and coating. The central part of the fiber optic cable is the core through which the light travels.

Fiber optic cables have much higher bandwidth than metal cables which enables them to carry more data and provide faster data transmission rate. Fiber optic cables are less vulnerable to noise and interference and are much thinner and lighter as compared to metal cables. Fiber optic cable enables digital data transmission and are used as the backbone for Internet and long-distance telecommunications.

The global fiber optic cable market is expected to reach approximately USD 11.67 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 11.18% from 2013 to 2025.

The market has been segmented based on type, application, and region.

By type, the market has been divided into single mode and multimode cables. Single mode cable segment is dominating the fiber optic cable market by type and is expected to generate the highest revenue as the single-mode optical fiber has a single glass fiber strand and a small diametrical core which allows only one light beam to propagate, due to which, the number of light reflections is decreased. This reduces the overall distortion due to overlapping light pulses. The multi-mode segment is expected to grow at a constant rate during the forecast period since the multi-mode optical fibers are used for short distance data transmission or audio applications in LANs, backbone applications in buildings, and networking.

By application, the market is sub-segmented into long-distance communication, submarine cable, FTTX, local mobile metro network CATV, and local access network. Among these, the long-distance communication is expected to be the highest revenue generating application during the forecast period. The data rates required by different applications increase the adoption of fiber optic cables in various industries. IT & Telecommunication holds the highest share of the market for fiber optic cables.
