The global consumer active optical cable market size was valued at $80.9 million in 2018, and is projected to reach $383.0 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 19.7% from 2019 to 2026. An active optical cable (AOC) is a cabling technology that uses optical fiber between the connectors to improve the cable’s performance. In consumer applications, these cables are majorly used for audio-video connectivity, and network connectivity. With the help of terminals, these cables can be expanded from short length to long length, and eliminates the need for multiple connections.

The market is analyzed and estimated in accordance with the impacts of the drivers, restraints, and opportunities. The demand for consumer active optical cable market is expected to increase rapidly during the forecast period, owing to various factors such as rise in demand for higher bandwidth, an increase in investments by governments to improve connectivity in China, growth in penetration of video on demand, video conferencing, gaming, and home surveillance services, and a surge in demand for 4k and high definition display. However, high initial investment associated with the active optical cable and threat of hacking in optical network security hampers the market growth. Conversely, advancements in fiber optics technology is projected to offer remunerative opportunities to the consumer active optical cable industry.

The consumer active optical cable market is segmented on the basis of technology, connector type, and region. The technology segment is further categorized into InfiniBand, Ethernet, HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB. Based on connector type, the market is divided into CFP, SFP, and others. The SFP segment accounted for the maximum share in 2018. By region, the consumer active optical cable market trends are analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The key players operating in the market include Molex, LLC, Finisar Corporation, Amphenol Corporation, Shenzhen Gigalight Technology, Sopto Technologies, Fujitsu, Broadcom, 3M Corporation, IBM Corporation, and Siemon.

According to the report titled, 'Consumer Active Optical Cable Market by Technology and Connector Type: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019-2026,' the global consumer active optical cable market size was valued at $80.9 million in 2018, and is projected to reach at $383.0 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 19.7% from 2019 to 2026. North America is expected to be the leading contributor to the global consumer active optical cable market, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific.

In optical cables the information is transmitted through light, which has been reflected due to the total, internal reflection phenomena. The global consumer active optical cable market is witnessing rapid expansion and replacing the copper wires; the technological development in the optical fiber, which is further expected to enhance the use of active optical cables in consumer applications.

Increase in demand for higher bandwidth is majorly driving the growth of the consumer active optical cable market, owing to rise in adoption of cloud applications, video services, and online gaming. This, in turn, has created a greater need for active optical cables as these cables provide higher bandwidth, enhanced reliability and small bend radius for easy installations. Moreover, emerging countries such as China, India, Pakistan, and Japan, are using the optical network to meet the increased requirements of connectivity improvement and use of 3G/4G/5G networks. Many economies are connected to the world through undersea fiber optic cables, for faster connectivity. Thus, improved connectivity in emerging countries is expected to boost the growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, numerous technologies such as polymer optic fiber, high altitude platforms, laser neural network nodes, and intelligent optical transmission networks, are used to optimize the error and generate a secured network. Hence, advancement in the fiber optics technology is expected to create stellar opportunities for the consumer active optical cable market during forecast period. However, high initial investments in the technology as compared to that for conventional cabling technologies, negatively impact the growth of the consumer active optical cable industry.

The HDMI segment accounted for the maximum revenue share in 2018 and is expected to generate maximum revenue during the forecast period in the global consumer active optical cable market, owing to the ability of active optic HDMI cables to provide per-pixel digital accuracy, pass TMDS signals, and provide high quality digital videos (4K). This segment secured approximately 31.5% share in the global market. Further, this segment is expected to witness high growth of about 31.5% from 2019 to 2026, owing to increasing application of HDMI in areas such as HD televisions, projectors, and media players. The SFP connectors are widely used for connectivity of consumer active optical cable. This segment secured approximately 65.0% share in 2018. However, the CFP connectors segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of about 27.0% during the forecast period.

According to Ankit Prajapati, Lead Analyst, Semiconductor and Electronics, “Consumer active optical cable market is growing at an unprecedented rate and is projected to sustain in the coming years. This is attributed to increase in demand for higher bandwidth and rise in adoption of cloud applications, video services, and online gaming. Furthermore, increased requirements of connectivity improvement and use of 3G/4G/5G networks is expected to boost the demand for consumer AOC.”

Based on region, the consumer active optical cable market trends have been analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America accounted for a major share of the global market in 2018 and is expected to dominate the market in terms of revenue during the forecast period, owing to growing demand for high performance computing, personal computers, digital signage, and consumer electronics. Moreover, high demand for bandwidth from cloud, video, and other applications in the region is also contributing to the consumer active optical cable market growth in North America.

Europe accounts for the second largest share in the global market and is expected to witness significant growth in forecast period. Increase in adoption of next-generation smart-TVs and high-definition video content on the internet in the European region has fueled the demand for AOCs in consumer applications.
The key players profiled in the report include Molex, LLC, Finisar Corporation, Amphenol Corporation, Shenzhen Gigalight Technology, Sopto Technologies, Fujitsu, Broadcom, 3M Corporation, IBM Corporation, and Siemon. Market players have adopted various strategies such as product launch, collaboration & partnership, joint venture, and acquisition to expand their foothold in the consumer active optical cable market.

Key findings of the study

In terms of revenue, HDMI contributed the maximum consumer active optical cable market share in 2018, and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the forecast period.
USB are expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
In 2018, the SFP segment held nearly two-third of market share, which was the highest among all connector types.
In 2018, North America accounted for over a 38% share globally, and is expected to dominate the consumer active optical cable market forecast.
