Global Market for Active Optical Cables is Projected to Surpass US$2 Billion by 2020

ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a new report on the global Active Optical Cables market, covering the industry segments, trends, growth drivers, market share, market size and demand forecasts.  Global market for Active Optical Cables (AOC) is projected to surpass US$2 billion by 2020, driven by bandwidth explosion, expansion of internet infrastructure, and advancements in fiber optics technology.

Need For Bandwidth Drives Demand for Active Optical Cables

Active Optical Cables present an integral part of contemporary data communication platforms. Defined as a cabling solution that provides electrical to optical conversion on cable ends for improved speed and distance efficiency, active optical cables are witnessing tremendous growth. Ever growing need for bandwidth and advancements in cabling technology represent fundamental factors driving growth in the region. Inherent advantages of active optical cables such as lower signal processing, enhanced signal integrity, greater airflow through smaller conduits, and superior flexibility routability and wider reach than conventional copper cables are driving their adoption.

Data Centers represents the largest end-use sector. Growth however, is forecast to come from emerging applications in personal computing, digital signage and Home Theater. Explosive growth in consumer Internet traffic worldwide driven by the surge in demand for mobile data and video services is yielding significant growth in demand for high speed and efficient transmission technologies. The scenario is driving expansion of existing capacity using Active Optical Cables to ensure efficient transmission of data. Traditionally, growth in the AOC market was driven by InfiniBand interface in commercial applications such as supercomputers and server applications. Over the years, the InfiniBand segment moved from the traditional 10G QSFP+ format to 14G FDR QSFP+ fiber optic cables, making it the strongest AOC application till date. Significant opportunities also lie ahead for QSFP and CXP active optical cables with 100 Gbps rate.

As stated by the new market research report on Active Optical Cables, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Emerging markets are expected to spearhead growth driven by strong economic development and growing adoption of new communication technologies.
