Insights on the Worldwide Coherent Optical Equipment Industry to 2026 - Expansion in Rural Areas Presents Opportunities -

The "Coherent Optical Equipment Market by Technology, Equipment, Application and End User: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026" report has been added to's offering.

According to this report the coherent optical equipment market size was valued at $18.64 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $37.18 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2019 to 2026.

Coherent optics equipment includes optical networking devices and equipment that help to promote 100G+ speed and aid in transmitting high volume of information by increasing the transmission capacity by using optical phase and polarization information. This, in turn, communicates substantially high volume of information onto the light speeding through a fiber optic cable.

Coherent optics resolves the transmission capacity issue by using modulation of the amplitude and phase of the light, and modulation of transmission across two polarizations. This issue is resolved by increasing the volume of information that is being transported through a fiber optic cable.

Rise in need for high-speed bandwidth and increase in data traffic have encouraged the network operators to deploy coherent optical technologies, which acts as a key factor that drives the growth of the global coherent optical equipment market. Supportive government and industry initiatives toward development of network infrastructure and technological advancements across the globe such as introduction of 5G infrastructure have propelled the growth of the global market. Furthermore, upsurge in number of netizens and rise in penetration of smartphone and mobile devices have augmented the network traffic, which, in turn, is expected to boost growth of the global market. However, high initial investment required for deployment if coherent optical systems restrains the market growth. In addition, expansion by telecom service providers in rural areas is anticipated to present lucrative growth opportunities for service providers.

The global coherent optical equipment market is segmented into technology, equipment, application, end user, and region. By technology, the market is categorized into 100G, 200G, 400G+, and 400G ZR.
