[Research Report] The fiber optic components market was valued US$ 16,546.7 million in 2019 and is expected to reach US$ 39,150.3 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% during 2020–2027.

The fiber optic components market is analyzed based on historical, current, and future trends across the region. The fiber optic components Fiber Optic Components market in APAC is further segmented into China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and the Rest of APAC. The adoption of fiber optics is high in this region owing to development in the communications applications; thus, the fiber connectivity in this region is likely to surge. In March 2018, the consortium of APAC network operators signed a contract with NEC Corporation, a Japan-based company to design a submarine cable (SJC2), which connects Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, China, and Korea. Several companies contributed to the SJC2 cable, such as Chuan Wei, China Mobile International, Chunghwa Telecom, Singtel, KDDI, SK Broadband, VNPT, and Facebook.

NEC Corporation is an optical fiber provider, which was chosen by the SJC2 Consortium as the provider for the advanced optical fiber submarine cable system. The cable can carry ~18Tbps of capacity per fiber pair. Hence, such major agreements in the region drive the demand for fiber optic components in APAC.

In this region, 5G technology is likely to have a positive impact on the fiber optic industry for 5G network infrastructure. The upcoming 5G network installations would offer new market opportunities for fiber optic cables and other high-speed connectivity products. The fiber optic cables connect micro base stations and edge nodes in the 5G network infrastructure; this would be an important factor driving the demand for fiber optics. The 5G high reliability and low latency application need edge computing solutions, which are anticipated to surge the demand for fiber optic cables. APAC has arisen as the largest consumer market of the fiber optic cable industry owing to major investments by the government to deploy fiber optic cable. In the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region, Singapore launched a 5G trial service. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Thailand are also likely to launch 5G in the coming years. The mobile operators in the region have invested US$ 370 billion to build 5G networks as per Global System for Mobile Communications (GSMA). World’s first nationwide 5G networks went live in South Korea in 2019. It is projected that 5G would contribute ~US$ 900 billion to the region’s economy during the next 15 years. Thus, high emphasis on 5G networks demands fiber optic components.

In the SAM region, Brazil holds a significant market share. The increased investment in fiber optic components by the masses across the region has driven the market growth. However, the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to affect economic growth, and thus the number of business and financial transactions in this region. Hence, the y-o-y growth of the market will get affected in 2020 and 2021, owing to business shutdowns and trade disruptions.   

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Fiber Optic Components Market

According to the latest situation report from the World Health Organization (WHO), the US, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, the UK, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, Iran, and China are among the worst affected countries due to COVID-19 outbreak. The outbreak first began in Wuhan (China) during December 2019, and since then, it has spread at a fast pace across the world.  The COVID-19 crisis is affecting the industries worldwide, and the global economy is anticipated to take the worst hit in 2020 and likely in 2021. The outbreak has created significant disruptions in the construction sector. The sharp decline in the international trade is negatively impacting the growth of the global economy. The production shutdowns, restrictions on supply chain, procurement management, labor scarcity, and border lockdowns to combat and contain the outbreak have adversely affected the construction sector. The production slowdown in the construction industry is directly affecting the adoption of various ad-hoc technologies and solutions such as fiber optic components, as the telecommunication companies have reduced their spending on adopting several technology solutions to deal with the current scenario.

Frequently Asked Questions


Which type of fiber optic components led the market?

Optical fiber cables used for communication are mostly made from silica, which, in pure form, has a very low loss in the infrared region of the optical spectrum. An optical fiber is constructed with a higher index of refraction with a cylindrical core than the cladding material. This difference in the refraction index gives the fiber its light guiding properties. The index of refraction of either the core or the cladding is changed from pure silica values by incorporating small amounts of doping materials, such as phosphorus and germanium. In fiber-optic communications, single-mode and multimode fiber constructions are used depending on the application. In multimode fiber, light travels through the fiber following different light paths called modes. In a single-mode fiber, only one mode is propagated straight through the fiber.
