Fiber Optic Collimator Lens Assembly Global Market Forecast


“Fiber Collimators serve as a key indicator of the growth of the fiber optic communication component industry sector…”


 Upper Lake, CA (USA) – May 12, 2011  — ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market research & technology forecast consultancy addressing the fiber optics communications industry, today announced the release of a new market forecast of the global market consumption and technology trends of commercial (non-military) fiber optic collimating lens assemblies, which are used in optical communication applications.


“Fiber Collimators serve as a key indicator of the growth of the fiber optic communication component industry and we are forecasting strong annual volume growth of 30.4% through 2015,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of International Business at ElectroniCast.


Fiber optic collimator lens assemblies are widely used to covert a divergent output laser beam from a fiber or waveguide into an expanding beam of parallel light; therefore, they are used in a variety of optical communication components, such as: modulators, attenuators, transmitters, pump laser modules, switches/optical cross connects, wavelength selective switches, ROADMs, isolators, circulators, expanded-beam connector assemblies, optical filter modules, DWDM, tunable filters, optical sensors, optical signal processing, integrated/hybrid packaged modules, and other active and passive components and devices.


“The fiber optics industry is now observing an impressive increase in the consumption of the optical elements and components that facilitate a strong environment for the use of collimator lens assemblies,” he added. 


According to ElectroniCast, this particular market research project quantifies the micro-sized fiber optic collimating lens assemblies, which are used for optical fiber interconnects.  Devices with multiple functions, including passive and active components, require efficient coupling in fiber alignments.  This is extremely important to recognize, especially with high fiber count array interconnects.  The ElectroniCast worldwide forecast, for non-military communication applications, show that array fiber optic collimating lens assemblies with more than (>) 12 lenses will increase at an average annual volume growth rate of 92.8% (2010-2015).


The ElectroniCast worldwide market research report details the consumption of collimating lens assemblies in a variety of commercial optical communication passive and active/integrated (hybrid) components.  The years of coverage, in this report, are: 2010-2015. This report provides the collimator market forecasts in terms of Quantity (number of units), Average Selling Prices (ASPs) per unit and Consumption Values.
