Fiber Optic Test Equipment Market Size to Develop Lucratively by 2027

Fiber optics cabling have evolved as the core of modern datacom networks. With increase in network speeds and bandwidth demands, have made fiber optic cabling certification essential to avoid distance and loss limitations. For decades, fiber optic test equipment’s are used to clean and inspect, ensuring proper passage of light, which is an important aspect in the fiber optic networks. These equipment’s also help troubleshooting and consist of testers such as, verification testers, certification testers and advanced optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR) testers. These testers are used across various verticals such as defense, telecom and oil and gas among others. Moreover, increasing number of fiber cable network deployments due to increase in higher data rates, as they enable appropriate inspection and cleaning fiber optic cables.

Increasing demand for higher bandwidth is expected thereby driving the market for fiber optic test equipment over the forecast period. In addition to this some of the prominent drivers for fiber optic test equipment market are factors such as increasing government investments in fiber optic networks, growing advancements of existing fiber optics networks and the advent of new communication standards. On the other hand, factors such as lack of awareness and technical skills of fiber optic test equipment can result into slow adoption rate and high cost of testers may act as a major restraint for the fiber optic test equipment market.

Fiber optic test equipment market can be segmented on the basis of product, type, application, vertical and regions. On the basis of component the fiber optic test equipment market can be segmented into optical time domain reflectometer, optical light source, optical power meter, optical loss test set, remote fiber test system, optical spectrum analysers and others. On the basis of type, the fiber optic test equipment market can be segmented as portable, bench top and other.  Whereas the application segment in the fiber optic test equipment market may include research and development, installation and maintenance, manufacturing and others. The vertical segment in the fiber optic test equipment market may include aerospace & defense, telecom, oil and gas, residential, and commercial, among others. Regionally, fiber optic test equipment market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East and Africa.

Fiber optic test equipment market is dominated by the Asia Pacific Excl. Japan and Japan region. Asia Pacific Excl. Japan‘s dominance is attributed to rising sales of smartphones and gaming creating a significant potential for growth of fiber-optic in the region, along with increase FTTH deployment I countries such as China, India, Korea, and Indonesia. On the other hand, North America is expected to grow at a significantly as compared to the other region in the fiber optic test equipment market and will see a good growth rate in the future, due to the growing importance of integrated test equipments. Eastern Europe, Latin America and MEA is expected to see a moderate growth rate in the fiber optic test equipment market.

Among the prominent players involved in fiber optic test equipment market, companies such as EXFO Inc., Anritsu Corporation, Keysight Technologies, Tektronix Inc., Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Corning Incorporated, Fluke Networks, Kingfisher International Pty Ltd, and JDS Uniphase Corporation, among others are focusing on organic as well as inorganic strategies to strengthen their position in the fiber optic test equipment market..
