Optical Communications Market 2020 Global Trends, Share, Industry Size, Growth, Opportunities and Industry Forecast to 2023

Market Highlights

The global optical communications market is presumed to garner USD 24 billion and expand at 9 % CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023) owing to the increasing demand for next generation of high bandwidth data center, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Optical communication refers to the process of sending information at a distance by using light as a carrier. The system comprises a channel, a modulator or transmitter, and a receiver or a photo-detector. The commonly used channel for optical communication is optical fibers which carry optical information to the destination.

With the rising demand for next generation of high communication network and bandwidth data center, the global optical communication market is likely to propel during the assessment period. Advanced optical solution serves commercial markets including semiconductor, ophthalmic, medical, astronomy, and others. For instance, advanced optics are utilized in a number of products so that it reaches the medical optics market from optical fiber to full detection systems. Innovation in data transmission and communication at long-distance and high-speed is appealing the market growth. Moreover, increasing need for reliable and faster communication network, growing adoption of cloud-based services, and growing data centers are some of the major factors contributing to the market growth.
