The global fiber optic cables market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030. The fiber optic cable market size is predicted to reach of around US$ 15 Billion by 2030. The development of new technologies in the telecom industry is expected to boost the global market during the forecast period. Developments in the telecom industry, including introduction of 4G LTE, 5G, and FTTH, have changed the manner in which services are delivered in the fiber optic cable market.

A fiber optic cable is a type of network cable that contains strands of glass fibers inside an insulated casing. Fiber optic cables are designed for use in long-distance and high-performance telecommunication and data networking. Fiber optic cables support much of the world's Internet service, telephone systems, and cable television networks.

A Key Driver

  • The global fiber optic cable market has witnessed significant growth over the last few years, due to the rising demand for high-speed connectivity, with the IT & telecommunication end-use industry segment holding a major market share. Industries such as energy & power, healthcare, and aerospace & defense are the leading verticals, in terms of adoption of the fiber optic technology.
  • Fiber optic cables have been witnessing high demand for a long time. While single-mode fibers had already witnessed high adoption among end-use industries and consumers, multi-mode fibers gained momentum recently. The deployment of multi-mode fibers in large-scale data centers and cloud services would continue to be high during the forecast period.
  • Applications in telecom and defense & aerospace industries, which require fiber optic cables, are anticipated to witness rise in demand during the second half of the forecast period. Improvements in the network technology in recent years have led to high-speed Internet connectivity and access to all applications requiring high-speed data such as videoconferencing, audio and video streaming, and cloud storage.
  • Fiber optic cable is the transmission method of choice when designing and implementing a reliable real-time video conferencing system without compromising on the quality of videos, audios, and data

Market Trend

  • The global fiber optic cable market is currently being driven by the global paradigm shift toward information-centric communication. Key enablers of the fiber optic cable deployment include continuously increasing demand for data services; propagation of the next-generation broadband know-how, which includes FTTx, LTE, and HSPA; and availability of low-cost tablet PCs and smartphones.
  • Fiber optic cable systems are evolving from the point-to-point application to a more complicated architecture. Currently, point-to-point unrepeated and repeated links primarily use two fibers, one in each direction. Availability of low-loss, low-cost couplers or development of transmission/receiving devices makes it possible to transform point–to-point links into a single fiber.
  • Multiplexing of various electric signals and transmitting them over a pair of fibers is the next stage of development. Numerous manufacturers have introduced fiber optics multiplex equipment as a substitute for the existing parallel coaxial cable links.
  • As for installation in operational applications, use of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is currently being considered as an option. The military is also using WDM in several of its system applications.
  • As a result of these advantages, the demand for fiber optic cables in various end-use industries is increasing. This is expected to boost the global fiber optic cable market during the forecast period.

Major Challenges

  • Availability of limited industry standards has delayed the development of specific optical fiber cables for use in component-intensive local areas and subscriber networks and also, in the industrial environment. Firms are unwilling to allocate sizeable portion of their capital budget to a system, which may be incompatible with the associated system, or outdated.

Demand for High-speed Connectivity Emerges as Key Driving Force for Market Growth

The need to stay connected via the Internet has become crucial for individuals as well as international companies. Hence, companies in the fiber optic cable market are focusing on the deployment of cloud based storage solutions. As such, there is a growing need for sending and retrieving data at high speeds, high quality, and consistency. This has triggered the growth of the fiber optic cable market.

On the other hand, countries in Asia Pacific such as Singapore, South Korea, and Japan are at the forefront to provide high-speed connectivity. This explains why the revenue growth of Asia Pacific is anticipated to progress at an aggressive speed. Moreover, companies in the market for fiber optic cables are expanding their business in European countries including Latvia and Czech Republic due to high demands for faster Internet speed. Companies in the market for fiber optic cables are increasing their focus in developing economies, since governments are increasing efforts to fund projects of fiber optic networks in the transportation infrastructure.

Transportation of Large Digital Content through FEC Fuels Demand for Fiber Optic Cables

Advancements in technology are being observed in the fiber optic cable market in order to support the transport of huge volumes of digital content. The increasing use of direct detection techniques between transmitters and receivers is another key driver that is fueling market growth. As such, the fiber optic cable market is estimated to cross US$ 15 Bn by the end of 2030. Thus, coherent detection techniques such as forward error correction (FEC) are some of the game changers that are deploying high-speed data transfers.

The Google Fiber project is catching the attention of the U.S. companies in the market for fiber optic cables, where the project focuses on revamping the cities’ Internet network. The U.S. companies in the market for fiber optic cables are focusing on building state-of-the-art networks that are capable of transferring large gigabits of data within seconds.

High Capacity Base Transceiver Stations Hold Potentials to Solve Network Outage Issues

The fiber optic cable market is estimated to register a striking volume CAGR during the forecast period. Moreover, the telecommunication industry in developing countries such as Ghana is undergoing a significant change, which has triggered the demand for robust fiber optic cable networks. As such, the IT & telecommunication industry dictates the highest revenue among all industries in the market landscape. However, frequent network outages are some of the biggest challenges that operators need to address. Hence, establishing state-of-the-art optical plants, correct system configurations, and high capacity base transceiver stations are among few solutions that can solve the issue of network outages.

Companies in the fiber optic cable market are adhering to government regulations to bolster their credibility in the market. For instance, mobile network operators (MNOs) in Ghana opine that the National Communication Authority and Ghana Telecommunication Chambers should collaborate with the MNOs to build uninterrupted fiber optic networks.

Prominent Regions

According to regional analysis, Asia Pacific is the dominant region of the global fiber optic cable market.  Growth of the market in the region can be attributed to the significant manufacturing ability of players operating in the Asia Pacific market to produce fiber optic cables for use in IT & telecommunication and aerospace & defense industries.
