ID: MRFR/SEM/0663-HCR | February 2021 | Region: Global | 100 pages

Market Scenario:


Companies such Optical Cable Corporation (U.S.), Sterlite Technologies (India), Fujikura Limited (Japan), Finolex Cable Limited (India), Infinera Corporation (U.S.), and Corning INC. (U.S.), are the leading providers of fiber optics in the global market. In August 2016, Infinera Corporation paired with Lumentum Holdings Inc. for Intelligent Transport Network DWDM platforms incorporated with white box optical line system. With this pairing, the companies are operating in an open optical networking environment. These companies have build a simulated point-to-point metro fiber network with the aim of bringing the open networking concepts in the market.


The growing opportunities in the healthcare sector such as endoscopic imaging applications, and biomedical sensing applications are boosting the market growth of fiber optics. The development of network infrastructure has propelled the fiber optics market growth to a large extent. The global market is majorly driven by the high bandwidth communication for long distance via optical fiber which is gaining demand in the fiber optic market. The fiber optics offers high bandwidth allowing more data to be delivered at the earliest.
