Fiber Optics Market Size to Surpass US$ 11.1 Billion by 2030

Published Date : 16 May 2022

The global fiber optics market size is projected to surpass USD 11.1 billion by 2030 from valued at USD 7.4 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2021 to 2030.

An optic fiber is a translucent, flexible fiber used to transport light that is created by drawing plastic or glass. The telecom industry, military, electromagnetic interference, community access television, and linked devices all have high need for optical fiber. It’s also commonly used to set up fiber optic connections. Fiber lasers and fiber optic sensors are two types of fibers that are utilized for a variety of other purposes. The multi-mode fibers are fibers that are designed to support numerous propagation sections or transverse modes. Single mode fibers, on the other hand, only support a single mode. The fiber optics market is predicted to increase significantly as a result of the surge of applications and needs. However, high fiber optics implementation costs and issues with fiber optic cable merging are likely to limit revenue growth in the global fiber optics market over the projection period.

Market Dynamics


Widespread implementation of 5G

Consumers are increasingly demanding more information and greater global coverage. The 5th generation wireless connection is projected to be the next technological advancements. These heavy-duty optical fiber networks, which affect both the wireline and wireless sides of the infrastructure, have a big influence on the 5th generation. Furthermore, 5th generation’s network performance targets rely substantially on widespread fiber connectivity. 5th generation is now being tested in a number of markets, with significant adoption projected by 2020.


Highly susceptible

Fiber optic cable is a thin, compact cable that is easily cut or damaged during installation and development. The data transmission possibilities of fiber optic cables are amazing. As a result, when fiber optic cabling is selected as the transmission medium, backup, restoration, and survivability must all be considered. As a result, the highly susceptible is restricting factor for the growth of the global fiber optics market during the forecast period.


Surge in demand for internet

The internet is a worldwide network of interconnected devices. Fiber optics serve as the internet’s backbone, with optical fiber cables serving as the medium for transporting data from one location to another. The internet is being driven by the expanding importance of data transfer, internet of things, cloud computing, and storage. The number of internet users is predicted to rise from 3.6 billion in 2018 to 5 billion by 2025, according to the International Energy Agency. Thus, the surge in demand for internet is creating lucrative opportunities for the growth of the fiber optics market during the forecast period.


Alternative wireless connectivity solutions

Wireless communication networks transmit data from one location to another using the microwave radio spectrum. From a central location, information is broadcast to the receiving dishes. For wireless communication, the most often utilized techniques are radio frequency and fiber space optics. Wireless communication has the advantage of requiring less capital for installation than fiber optics. Another key benefit of radio frequency and fiber space optics is that they do not interfere with one another. As a result, alternative wireless connectivity solutions are a major challenge for the growth of the fiber optics market during the forecast period.
