Based on technology, the coherent optical equipment market has been segmented into 100G, 200G, 400G+, and 400G ZR. The 100G segment accounted for significant market share globally in 2017.This segment is projected to maintain considerable market share over the forecast period. Both residential and business customers are demanding high speed bandwidth. The adoption of 100G coherent technology has surged both in long haul networks and metro networks. Coherent optical fiber enables greater network programmability and flexibility by supporting different baud rates and modulation formats. This results in greater flexibility in line rates, with scalability from 100G to 400G and beyond per single signal carrier, delivering increased data transmission throughput at a lower cost per bit. 400G+ technology segment is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period with growing demand from the public sector and industries end-use sectors. 

Based on equipment, wavelength-division multiplexer (WDM) accounted for leading market share in 2017 followed by optical switches, and is expected to retain its position over the forecast period. WDMs are used to increase capacity of communication in different applications such as access, enterprise communication, backhaul, long-haul, and metro networks. However, optical switches segment is expected to expand at a significant pace over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Moreover, test & measurement equipment segment is projected to gain market share in the coming years due to increasing demand for higher capacity communication networks from end-users as well as different industry verticals. 

Based on application, networking application in coherent optical equipment accounted for leading market share in 2017 followed by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and is expected to retain its position over the forecast period. Networking is a form of optical communication which depends on optical amplifiers, LEDs, lasers, and WDM to transmit data through a channel (usually by optical fiber). It is capable of transmitting data with maximum possible bandwidth and minimum possible losses. However, data center application segment is expected to expand at a significant pace over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 with increasing internet penetration and growing data traffic along with need for high speed transmission networks. 

Based on end-user, the coherent optical equipment market can be categorized into service provider, public sector, and industries. The service provider sector is the prominent user of coherent optical equipment followed by the public sector, due to increasing demand for high speed bandwidth from internet service providers and telecom service providers. The industries sector is projected to expand at a rapid pace over the forecast period due to growing demand for high speed data transmission from different industries such as aviation and railways. 

The market in North America is anticipated to contribute significantly to revenue in the near future, followed by Asia Pacific, due to a large base of existing users in the region. North America and Europe are mature regions of the coherent optical equipment market in terms of technical awareness among users. This is likely to contribute to the decline in market share of these regions. Furthermore, the market in APAC and Middle East & Africa is likely to expand at a robust CAGR in the coming years.
