Passive Optical Components Market - Outline
Constituting a gamut of components, which includes optical cables, optical amplifiers, optical couplers, optical filters, optical connectors, , optical transceivers, optical power splitters, optical encoders, patch cords and pigtails, fixed and variable attenuators, wavelength division multiplexers, optical circulators and others passive optical components now found use in FTTH applications and current data networks.
Of all components in the passive optical components market, the wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers held the leading revenue in the past. This product segment was trailed by the patch cords and pigtails segment in the same period. The demand for these product segments is fuelled by the emergence of ultra-high-capacity optical networks.
Passive optical components find use in other applications too. This includes loop feeder, interoffice, hybrid fiber-coaxial cable, fiber in the loop, synchronous optical network (SONET), and synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH).
However, the SONET and SDH application segments led the passive optical components market in the past. This is due to the ability of passive optical components to transmit multiple digital bit streams over optical fiber using lasers or light-emitting diodes. SONET equipment is predominantly used in North America whereas SDH configuration equipment is mostly used in other parts of the world.
Proliferation of telecommunication networks in emerging economies of Asia Pacific is expanding the horizon of passive optical components market in the region. Rising investments in fiber deployment in emerging economies of the region is creating opportunities in the passive optical components market of the region. Technological advances and development of hi-tech telecommunication networks is anticipated to continue to propel the passive optical components market in the region. On the other hand, North America and Europe continue to hold considerable share in the overall passive optical components market.
