Research and Markets: Optical Components: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2013 to 2019
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vxvnz5/optical)
has announced the addition of Wintergreen Research, Inc's new report
"Optical Components: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts,
Worldwide, 2013 to 2019" to their offering.
The optical component market is intensely competitive. There is
increasing demand for optical components as communications markets grow
in response to more use of smart phones and more Internet transmission
of data. The market for network infrastructure equipment and for
communications semiconductors offers attractive long-term growth:
- Data center growth is in response in part to the growth of bid data,
and in part to the incredible bandwidth being consumed by video content.
- New programming is moving to broadcast quality short videos that can
be downloaded by users
- Users can download broadcast quality news or training videos as
broadband networks become universally available.
Low bandwidth video does not directly drive adoption of optical
components. It indirectly does by creating demand for broadband data
transport. Video capability at the high end of the market is creating
need for network high speed of transmission just because of the quantity
of data being transmitted.
The Optical Transport Network (OTN) is a set of optical network elements
connected by optical fiber links. Optical network elements provide
transport, multiplexing, switching, management, supervision and
survivability of communication channels. Carrier Ethenet is emerging.
Optical transceiver, transmitter, receiver, and transponders support the
implementation of the new network capacity.
Optical components are an innovation engine for the network supporting
end to end data transport over optical systems. Optical components
support and enable low-cost transport throughout the network. Optical
components are needed for high speed network infrastructure build-outs.
These are both for carriers and data centers. Network infrastructure
build-out depends on the availability of consultants who are
Optical transceivers are evolving that are compliant with the 10Gbps
Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) Multi-Source (News - Alert) Agreement (MSA)
specification for next generation optical transceiver devices. The
10Gbps optical transceiver can be used in telecom and datacom
(SONET/SDH/DWDM/Gigabit Ethernet) applications to change an electrical
signal into an optical signal and vice versa.
There is expected to be tremendous investment in wireless cell tower
base stations as the quantity of network traffic grows exponentially.
Carriers worldwide are responding to the challenges brought by the
massive increase in wireless data traffic. The advent of big data and
exponential growth of data managed by the enterprise data centers is a
significant market factor.
The global optical component market at $3.6 billion in 2012 is
anticipated to reach $12.3 billion by 2019. Growth is driven by the
availability of high speed processors and component devices that support
increased speed and traffic on the optical networks. The migration to
all optical networks is ongoing.
Markets are driven by the availability of 100 Gbps devices and the vast
increases in Internet traffic. Internet traffic growth comes from a
variety of sources, not the least of which 1.6 billion new smart phones
sold per year. Smartphone market growth is causing the need for
investment in backhaul and cell tower technology. Worldwide optical
transport market revenues are forecast to grow rapidly through 2019.
This is in the context of a world communications infrastructure that is
changing. Technology is enabling interaction, innovation, and sharing of
knowledge in new ways.
