A rising number of data center installations, the replacement of copper wires with optical fiber connectors, and usage of fiber optics for high-speed data transmission are the factors driving the growth of the fiber optics market. According to this recent research report from IndustryARC, the fiber optics market size was between $3.1 billion to $3.4 billion as of 2018, and the market demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 11% to 13% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025. The fiber optics market deals with the development of a cable whose diameter is equal to that of hair and can transmit data from one source to another by using light as the carrier.

Fiber optics has become the backbone of the global telecommunications network, giving instant access to web sites and telephones around the world. This telecom network continues to reach towards homes and businesses. Engineering application is dominating among other diverse application segments such as telecommunications, cable TV and military; it is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 14% to 15% during the forecast period 2019-2025. Fiber optic sensors have become the best choice of civil engineers for monitoring structural infrastructures. These are used for concrete monitoring during setting in bridges and buildings and joints monitoring damage detection in tunnels.

The analyst of the report has identified APAC as the key region for fiber optics which held a major share of about 26% to 29% as of the year 2018. This mainly attributes to the increased demand for optical cables from countries like China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Now China is the leading player for fiber optics products. With the growing marketplace for internet, the development of high-speed transmission network, and the government initiatives will present high growth opportunities for fiber manufacturers. The information is based on a fresh market research report from IndustryARC, titled “Fiber Optics Market: by type, by mode, by cable, by configurations, by link components, by application & by geography – forecast (2019-2025).”
