Posted April 17, 2018 by AkashS123

Market Research Future published a research report on “Optical Network Hardware Market Research Report- Forecast 2023” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2023.
Market Scenario

Global Optical Network Hardware market was valued at USD 14 Billion in 2017. The market is projected to reach market value of USD 32 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 13.85% over the forecast period. The growth in cloud services, increasing use of connected virtual devices, and proliferation of mobile services of Wi-Fi, and 3G or 4G technology are some of the major factors driving the growth of optical networking. However, lack of Infrastructure in developing and under-developed countries and higher cost of transition and maintenance from existing cable are some factors hindering the market growth.

Optical networking is a technique which carries digital information via light waves over fiber optic cables. Advent of WDM supports in transmitting data using multiple wavelengths of light using different frequencies over a single optical fiber. According to MRFR analysis, the growth in cloud services, increasing demand of high bandwidth services, and rising IoT has driven the demand for optical transport networking systems. The increasing usage of internet for personal and commercial purpose by consumers has increased the network traffic. To address this issue, consumers are deploying additional systems to existing optical networks. Today, many applications have transformed from function specific dedicated hardware platforms to virtualized services deployed within cloud datacenters.
