Fiber Optics Market was estimated at USD 3,897 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% during forecast period.
GMI Research speculates the high demand for optical fibers in the telecommunication & IT industry. These require greater bandwidth and faster speed connections which augmented the fiber optics market.
Introduction of Fiber Optics Market
An optical fiber is a transparent and flexible fiber comprised of drawing glass or plastic. It usually comes in bundles called optical cables that have a diameter slightly thicker than human hair. With the help of optical (light-based) technology, fiber optics cables help transmit information from one end to another end of the cable. Therefore, it uses glass or plastic that makes it capable of transferring a signal to a long distance with minimum loss due to unaffected electromagnetic interference. The global market is segmented into single-mode and multi-mode.
