Global Market for Optical Network Components to Reach $7.6 Billion in 2019; Faster Communication Impacting Other Industries

January 06, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., January 6, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on optical network components that the ongoing migration from lower speed to higher speed connections is providing optical network component suppliers with a recurring revenue stream. Optical network semiconductors will witness an increase from $6.4 billion in 2014 to $7.6 billion in 2019, registering a 3.2% rise in compound annual growth rate (CAGR). The result is that optic components will continue to be an area of prime interest to silicon suppliers.

Advances in wafer and silicon technology have enabled chip manufacturers to squeeze complex functions onto much smaller spaces. They have also been able to put increased functionality into these chips. As a result, optical components continue to be an area of prime interest for semiconductor suppliers. These new semiconductors offer users a number of benefits— more functionality, simpler deployment, and support for higher speed.

“Businesses and individuals have developed new applications to take advantage of high-speed, multimedia-friendly transmissions,” says BCC Research analyst Paul Korzeniowski. “In the healthcare industry, high-speed optical connections are dramatically improving patient care. Medical imaging is becoming more granular and new applications are emerging. In the data center, optic connections are altering the design of IT systems. Consolidated systems are becoming more common and cloud computing will gain demand.”
