Market Research – Fiber Optic Fusion Splicers
According to ElectroniCast Consultants, the global consumption value of fiber optic fusion splice equipment in 2010 increased 35% over 2009.
Upper Lake, CA (USA) – March 21, 2011 — ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market and technology research consultancy addressing the fiber optics communications industry, today announced the release of the 1st of 2 study reports in 2011 covering the worldwide market for Fiber Optic Fusion Splicers. This report provides the review of 2010 and a 5-year (2011-2015) forecast of the consumption value of fiber optic fusion splicers.
A Fusion Splicer is specialized instrument used to join optical fibers to each other. This market research study report covers the use of fusion splice machines used for fiber optic-based communication applications and for the purpose of the manufacturing of components to be used (consumed) in the selected communication applications.
2010 Consumption Value Jumped 35% over 2009 The global consumption value of fiber optic fusion splice equipment in 2010 increased 35% over 2009. “The consumption value is forecast to increase dramatically by a factor of 2x from 2010-2015, with strongly rising quantity growth partially offset by a continuing decline of average prices,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of International Business at the firm.
APAC to Take Market Share Lead Last year in 2010, North America led in the consumption value of fiber optic fusion splicers; however, helped along substantially by consumption in China, the Asia Pacific region (APAC) is forecast increase in relative market share during the forecast period, driven by countries throughout the region that are bringing fiber closer to the drop-areas (FTTx), as well as the use of fusion splicers in the manufacturing of fiber optic components/devices.
Rest of World The Rest of World (ROW) regional segment covers the Middle East, Africa (MEA) and Central/South America. “The Central/South America region, especially, is showing aggressive growth rates in terms of fiber optic fusion splicer purchases. ElectroniCast Consultants has recently opened an office in South America to assist our clients that have an interest in expanding their sales revenue in the region,” Montgomery added.
Telecommunication Maintains Leadership According to ElectroniCast Consultants, the Telecommunications application currently represents over ½ of the worldwide consumption of fiber optic fusion splicers. The use of fusion splice equipment in the production (manufacturing) of fiber optic components/devices is forecast to increase at an average annual growth rate of 16.1 percent from 2010-2015. Consumption of fusion splice equipment in cable TV, military/aerospace and various specialty/other applications are also quantified in this report of the study. Electrical and communication wiring contractor’s annual use of fusions splicers to deploy optical fiber Private Enterprise Networks is forecast to increase (2x) from 2010 to 2015.
Single Fiber Type Remains Market Leader In 2011, single fiber fusion splicers represent 57% of worldwide consumption value (see Figure). The global consumption value of mass fiber (multiple fiber or ribbon) splicers is forecast to increase at a double-digit average growth rate from 2010-2015. “In the single fiber fusion splicer product category, the larger (and more expensive) core-to-core bench top models lead in worldwide consumption value in 2011; however, we are forecasting that the micro-splicers (small handheld fusion splicers) will increase in consumption value at a faster annual pace (2010-2015),” Montgomery concluded.
