The single mode fiber segment held a larger share of the optical interconnect market than the multimode fiber segment in 2019
The single mode fiber segment is projected to account for a larger size of the optical interconnect market from 2020 to 2025 than the multimode fiber segment. The major factor contributing to the growth of this segment of the market is the high adoption of optical interconnects for long-distance data transmission applications. Optical interconnects with single mode fibers offer high data transfer rates for long-distance transmissions with only one type of signal. The optical interconnects have replaced the traditional copper-based electric optical interconnects for inter-datacenter interconnections, and metro and long-haul level interconnections, as they relatively offer high data transfer rate with low attenuation.
The chip- and board-level optical interconnect segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The chip- and board-level optical interconnect segment of the market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The major factor contributing to the growth of this segment is the increasing requirement of fast processors with low power consumption and high data transmission rates. The increased popularity of parallel computing and the arrival of multicore processors and 3D chips are creating an increased demand for chip- and board-level optical interconnects. They are becoming crucial to cope up with the high-computing speed requirements of various applications.
The cable assemblies segment held the largest share of the optical interconnect market in 2019
In 2019, the cable assemblies segment held the largest share of the optical interconnect market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased deployment of fiber optics in datacenters and telecommunication applications across the world. These cable assemblies offer high data rates and low attenuation required by high bandwidth connectivity applications. Moreover, they have lower power consumption than the traditional copper-based electric cable assemblies, which make them suitable for datacenters and high-performance computing applications.
The data communication application segment led the optical interconnect market in 2019
Based on application, the optical interconnect market has been segmented into data communication and telecommunication. The data communication is projected to lead the optical interconnect market during the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased adoption of optical interconnects in datacenters and high-performance computing (HPC) applications owing to their high data transmission rates. The rising number of datacenters across the world is expected to drive the growth of this segment of the market. Optical interconnects offer a wide range of data rates for both intra- and inter-datacenter interconnection purposes. Hence, leading datacenter companies such as Google, Alibaba, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple use optical interconnects in their datacenters.
