Global Fiber Optic Connector/Mechanical Splice Market Outlook to 2027 - The Market is Driven by a Dramatic Increase in Bandwidth Demand Beyond the Limits of Copper - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 17, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 17, 2018--The “Global Fiber Optic Connector/Mechanical Splice Market Forecast” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The worldwide fiber optic connector/mechanical splice consumption value reached $3.94 billion last year (2017). Multimode connector use is forecast to grow from nearly $2.52 billion in 2017 to over $3.62 billion in 2027.The global fiber optic connector/mechanical splice consumption is driven by a dramatic increase in bandwidth demand beyond the limits of copper. As optical fiber use migrates closer and closer to the end user, where cable lengths are shorter with higher fiber counts, the requirements for jointing fibers becomes more critical. Splicing and connecting, play a significant role in a network’s cost and performance.

The multimode LC small form factor connector is forecast to maintain the leadership position in relative market share throughout the forecast period.

Field-installable connectors for indoor and outdoor use are increasing in demand and thus are increasing in volume for several end-use options. Both mechanical-splice and fusion-splice technologies are meeting the requirements in the field-installable fiber optic connector availability.

There are over 100 vendors competing for the global fiber optic connector/ mechanical splice market, which the report tracks in a product matrix showing participation in the following: connectors, cable assemblies, optical backplanes, and fiber optic installation apparatus; however, is dominated by a few companies that have a broad base in various interconnect products.
