Planar light wave circuit splitter splits the optical power uniformly over the entire single-mode operating window. Planar light wave circuit splitter or PLC splitter is designed based on silica glass waveguide process that offers solutions such as distribution of low cost light having high reliability and low form factor. Fiber optic splitters were earlier designed on the basis of fused biconical taper, however the PLC splitters are the device that are fabricated using technologies such as silica glass substrate and the lithography. Splitters are an essential component of Passive Optical Network systems (PON). Planer light wave circuit splitter are installed in every optical network in between the PON optical line network (OLT) and the optical network terminals (ONT) that is served by the OLT. The most commonly used splitters includes 1xN and 2xN. N indicates the output port number. Due to such type of 1xN and 2xN configurations, it is possible to deploy point to multipoint physical fiber network with a single optical line network port to multiple optical network terminals. Planer light wave circuit splitter is a passive device with high quality specially designed for BPON, EPON and GPON.

Planer light wave circuit splitters has high quality of performance and offers benefits such as low insertion loss, and low polarization dependent loss. The major parameters that drives the growth of the global planer light wave circuit splitter market is the compact design and its simplicity. Also the functionality of effective power management, superior type of quality design having low failure rate and splitting the signal equally without any disruption boosts the planer light wave circuit splitters market. One of the major restraints that restricts the growth of the global planer light wave circuit splitter market is the complex manufacturing process. Also the planer light wave circuit splitters are more expensive as compared to the fused biconical taper (FBT) elements, resulting the decrease in the global planer light wave circuit splitter market. However, the PLC splitters are widely used in the communication rooms and datacenters. Due to the growing technology in the fiber optic market, with the increasing demands with respect to the performance, security, reliability, and modularity, the global planer light wave circuit splitters is expected to grow in the near future. Also the fiber optic manufacturers continuously work to design technologically advanced PLC splitters, to meet the demands and plays an important role in the growth of the planer light wave circuit splitter market.

The global planer light wave circuit splitter market is segmented into type, application and geography. Based on type, the global planer light wave circuit splitter market is segmented into 1xN and 2xN. On the basis of application, the global light wave circuit splitter market is segmented into telecommunication, LAN, CATV, monitoring of networks and FTTH (Fiber to the Home). Geographically, the planer light wave circuit splitter market is segmented into North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. North America is expected to be a leading market for the light wave planer circuit splitter due to the advanced technology followed by the Europe. Asia Pacific is expected to be an emerging market for the light wave planer circuit splitter market due to the presence of emerging economies such as China, India and Japan.

Some of the key players operating in the global planer light wave circuit splitter market are AFL, Go! Foton, Ntt Electronics, Opto-Link Corporation Limited, Prysmian Group, Spiktel Technologies Private Limited, Aoa Technology Co.,Limited, Gould Fiber Optics, Tara Consultants Private Limited, and Optosun, among others.
