Worldwide Commercial Use of commercial terrestrial FSO Transmitter/Receivers Reached $10.39 Million in 2020 and forecasted to reach nearly $241 million in 2030.

10-Year Market Forecast

Free Space Optics (FSO) is a line-of-sight (LOS) technology that uses directed LEDs or Laser emitters, which provide optical bandwidth Transmitters and Receivers to link voice, video, and data intelligent transfer. A single FSO link product often may incorporate multiple transmitters along with receiver/s to ensure adequate performance, in case of interference.


As the cost and other obstacles of deploying fiber optic cables or copper-based cables continue to increase, the product and deployment opportunities for FSO as well as other wireless communication link solutions improve. Communication managers face the timely delays and cost comparison of utilizing a telecommunication leased-line versus the implementation of an FSO system, the flexibility of the FSO product-area may present an attractive communication link alternative. 


Data throughput (transfer) rates are continuing to push up into the multi-gigabit region and optical communication use is increasing; therefore, the emphasis on low-cost, quickly deployed system solutions is encouraging to the FSO prospects.


This report provides the market consumption forecast of outdoor transmitter/receiver pairs used in terrestrial outdoor fixed-location (stationary) FSO commercial links; therefore, government-based Defense/Homeland Security or aircraft/spacecraft, space or Earth-to-Space use, as well as Inside-the-building links, are not included. 


FSO devices, which are placed at a window inside of a building, but directed outside, for outdoor links, are included in the forecast. Only the FSO Function of FSO/RF Hybrid Products is included in market data.


The market data in this report does not include all of the other parts that compose of the entire FSO system equipment, such as the mounting brackets, external mux/demux, drivers, switches, amplifiers, wire/connectors, installation/service, etc. FSO communication links require at least two separate transmitter/receiver pair units; for example – one T/R pair unit at point ¨A¨ and another T/R pair unit at point ¨B¨.


The analysis and forecast are presented for FSO Transmitter/Receiver (pair) link devices, segmented by distance and data-rate throughput. The forecast for each selected FSO link device, in turn, is segmented by geographic region:


  • America (North America, Central and South America)
  • EMEA (Europe, Middle Eastern countries, plus Africa)
  • APAC (Asia Pacific)

The market forecast data are segmented by the following functions:

  • Consumption Value (US$, million)
  • Quantity (number/units)
  • Average Selling Prices (ASP $, T/R Pair)

  • 1000 Meters (1 km) or Less
    • 1 Gbps or Lower
    • Higher Than 1 Gbps

  • More Than 1000 Meters (1 km)
    • 1 Gbps or Lower
