Optical Communication and Networking Market size to cross $55 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: January 31, 2023

Optical Communication and Networking Market size is estimated to reach USD 55 billion by 2032, according to a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rapid developments in the 5G network will positively affect the optical communication and networking industry dynamics. Owing to a network surging demand, major telecom operators worldwide are conducting trials to enable the deployment of a 5G. Infrastructure providers are increasingly focusing on the development and integration of sophisticated software and hardware components suitable for the next-generation network. Optical communication and networking solutions have thus gained significant momentum among operators seeking advanced infrastructure capabilities pertaining to massive data traffic to be generated by 5G networks.

Increasing preference for low-latency services to propel demand for optical fibers

Optical fiber held more than 20% share of the optical communication and networking market in 2022. A surge in the number of internet users over the last few years and an increasing need for FTTx, also known as fiber to the x has fostered the deployment of these components. The technologies significantly reduce transmission losses with low latency along with the risk of data collision.

Optical fibers are extensively adopted by data centers, which have massive volumes of data management needs. A growing preference for low-latency services across a broad spectrum of applications will proliferate the demand for optical fiber products.

New remote working trends to accelerate the adoption of SONET technology

Optical communication and networking market share from the synchronous optical network (SONET) is expected to record over 10% CAGR between 2023-2032. SONET has emerged as a promising tool amidst the ongoing digitalization of businesses. Rapid penetration of smartphones, laptops, and other devices along with increasing internet dependence has accelerated the need for transmitting digital data over long distances via fiber optics.

SONET technology helps eliminate the inconvenience associated with increased floor space or congested cable racks and reduces the additional expenses of panels & cabling, and bays. A surge in adoption of work-from-home models driven by the COVID-19 pandemic will foster widespread integration of SONET technology.
