The pandemic resulted in the increasing preference for work-from-home and online education systems, which in turn led to the deployment of 5G and broadband connectivity infrastructure worldwide. Because fiber optics acts as a backbone to 5G communication and wireless traffic infrastructure, therefore, the explosion of internet use, social media services, online entertainment, Voice over IP (VoIP), and mobile payments together propel the high growth of the fiber optic cable market.
The rising demand for smartphones, connected wearables, and tablets will increase the deployment of new fiber optic cables and subsystems. Thus, the fiber optic cable market is expected to reach USD 31.50 Billion by 2029.
Specifically, the Asia Pacific region is expected to lead the fiber optics market during 2022-2029. Major economies such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea are expected to have a high potential for the future growth of the market.
Some of the prominent players in fiber optic cable manufacturing include:
