Polarization maintaining (PM) optical fiber provides the means to minimize noise and improve the optical performance of optical systems in a variety of market applications. The PM fiber market is estimated at $61 million in 2018 with strong projected growth through 2024 ($102 million). In 2018, PM fiber enabled a $738 million value-added component market.

The PM fiber market breaks down into five segments

  • Gyros
  • Test and Measurement
  • Lasers
  • Telecommunication Components
  • Sensor - Non-Gyro

In 2018, the largest market segment was gyros (40% market share) followed by lasers (37% market share). It is forecasted that by 2024, the laser market segment will surpass the gyro market segment in terms of market share.

There are several identified PM fiber suppliers with the leaders having a significant share of the government, military and aerospace markets focusing on fiber-optic gyroscopes (FOG).

The report will answer the following questions:

  • Which markets dominate in dollars and kilometers of fiber?
  • Which suppliers have the biggest share of the PM fiber markets?
  • How do those suppliers compare to each other in terms of PM fiber products sold, distinct manufacturing capabilities, and performance of products in specific uses?
  • What are the latest developments in PM fiber technology and manufacturing?
  • Which markets have the biggest barriers to entry, and why?
