Portland, OR — (PRESS RELEASE JET) — 09/25/2017 — Global active optical cable market was valued at $481.3 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $3,480.7 million by 2022, supported by a CAGR of 32.7% during the forecast period 2016 to 2022.
An active optical cable (AOC) is a cabling technology that uses optical fiber between the connectors to improve the cable’s performance. There is a rise in demand for AOC as it serves as an alternative to copper cables, due to its various advantages such as small bend radius for easy installment, low power consumption, and light weight. Applications of these cables have expanded, from high-performance computers to networking and storage with the support of many protocols. In addition, AOCs rely on different protocols, such as InfiniBand, USB, and Ethernet, for data transmission.
The global active optical cable market is primarily driven by a growth in the demand for active optical cables in data centers and an increase in the demand of high bandwidth networks. Cloud based applications; audio and video services, online gaming, and CATV require high-speed data services, which are facilitated by the use of AOCs. However, the high initial investment and the threat of replacement from copper cables and wireless broadband limits the growth of this market. The advancement in the fiber optics technology provides numerous opportunities in this market.
