The world was in the midst of an economic catastrophe brought on by the COVID-19 epidemic. The pandemic had slowed the growth pace of the semiconductor industry particularly in 2020 and 2021. Most of the major demand-generating sectors were non-operational in various countries which has hampered the growth of expanded beam cable market.
Due to major lockdowns imposed by the governing authorities, the supply chain for expanded beam cable/connector was disrupted. The scarcity of raw materials to produce expanded beam cables impacted on the pricing strategies adopted by the manufacturers. Additionally, in the absence of large workforce, the production of expanded beam cable was largely hampered. Also, the transportation of finished product was carried out at slower pace causing major delays in the delivery, thereby blocking the inventory as well as cash inflow for longer periods.
The growth of the Expanded Beam Cable market is driven by various factors, such as increasing demand in mission-critical applications. However, the growth of the global market likely to be hindered due to high manufacturing and implementation costs.
INCREASING DEMAND IN MISSION-CRITICAL APPLICATIONS
Fibre optics technology has paved its way to almost every industrial sector. The industries such as defense & military, aerospace, geophysics, etc. widely deploy fibre optics in their applications. All these industries are known for their mission-critical applications such as Military Communications, Oil & Gas, Medical, Robotics, Energy & Power, Broadcast Systems, Manufacturing and Industrial, Geophysical Exploration, Marine Operations, Military/ Aerospace etc. that are exposed to harsh environments. As a result, the fibre optic cables and fibre optic connectors are also subject to environmental factors such as dust, dirt, moisture, high temperatures, oil, water, and even chemicals. Nevertheless, in these industrial applications, the use of fibre optic cables and connectors is unavoidable. Therefore, the expanded beam fibre optic connectors are designed and developed specifically for fibre-based applications under harsh environments. Hence, increasing demand in mission-critical applications drives the demand for expanded beam cables market.
HIGH MANUFACTURING AND IMPLEMENTATION COSTS
The implementation of expanded beam cables/connectors is considerably expensive as it includes high manufacturing and high implementation cost of expanded beam cables. High cost related to manufacturing is acting as a major challenge towards hampering the market growth of expanded beam cables over the forecast period. In addition, manufacturing costs of these expanded beam cables are comparatively higher due to usage of high-quality components to safeguard from harsh environment, thus adversely impacting its market growth. Further, the requirement of safety gears for installation in critical spots such as Oceans increases the installation cost. Thus, high-cost involvement in expanded beam cable hinders the market growth.
GROWING POTENTIAL FOR NEW APPLICATIONS THROUGH EXPANDED BEAM OPTICAL
In this era the growing potential for new applications through expanded beam optical (EBO) is gaining momentum. For instance, complex backplane cabling is currently the focus of applications. Also the increase in IoT applications with correspondingly powerful networks, for example in building cabling, is also a driver for the use of the EBO technology. Since the EBO technology excels particularly in challenging environments, new applications are already starting to emerge. Further, It is less sensitive to vibrations and dust than other connector concepts. For instance, it is ideally suited for the use of edge computing and 5G in commercial production. Only fibre optics can provide the long-term high bandwidths and low latencies in the backbone required for Industry 4.0. Thus, the expanded beam market is expected to grow. It's also important to mention the 5G networks themselves, where FTTA (Fibre to the Antenna) is required. Strong networks with increasing bandwidths are also needed for mobile applications, like those on trains and in aeroplanes, which experience significant vibrations while in use. According to each customer's specific needs, the players in EBO market develops suitable connector systems for these applications in collaboration with them.
