Combining optical equipment with fiber cabling (supporting 5G) the publisher finds the following overall monetary data, the global market was worth $5 billion for 2019 and this market increases at 11.3% CAGR to exceed $10 billion in year 2026. This means that over the seven-year period the total market will more than double in monetary terms.

Markets for WDM protocol-enabled systems always dominate over markets for other protocols. Detailed data are provided in the report.

Profiles (including critiques) are included for 16 companies – OEMs and fiber cable manufacturers.

Leading regions are APAC and North America.

The objectives of this five-section report are to identify the business opportunities in the optical networking market in front haul and backhaul for 5G. An additional goal is to quantify these opportunities in both volume and value terms in seven-year forecasts.

The scope of this report covers both front haul and backhaul equipment and the optical cable itself. In both the forecasts and the analysis, the market is segmented further by various protocols, notably WDM, PON, Carrier Ethernet, and SDM. These protocols or types of ports are then segmented by data rate and, in the case of PON, the type of technology that is being used. There is also a geographical segmentation - globally and regionally. In addition, we examine the prospects for alternatives to fiber optics in the 5G infrastructure. These comprise millimeter radio, microwave radio and free-space optics.

At the core of this report are seven-year forecasts of all the protocols listed above and these are presented in terms of TAM values and shipments. We have analyzed the product/market strategies of leading actors in this space. We also examine appropriate strategies for optical networking and other firms to better penetrate the 5G front haul and backhaul market.
