10-Year Market Forecast

Optical Fiber Testing - An optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) is an optoelectronic instrument used to characterize an optical fiber. The optical-time domain reflectometer is considered at the core of fiber optic characterization.

This report provides estimates and forecasts of global consumption of hand-held OTDR fiber optic test units, associated supplemental (add-on) modules, and Multi-Test Platforms, which are initially used with OTDR add-on modules.

This report provides an analysis (review) and a 10-year forecast (2017-2027) of the worldwide market consumption segmented into the following geographic regions:
  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific Region (APAC)
  • China (Mainland)
  • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
The global market is segmented into the following major application categories:
  • Telecommunications
  • Private Enterprise Networks
  • Cable TV
  • Military
  • Specialty (Sensor, Industrial, Laboratory, rental units, other applications and non-specific/miscellaneous)
The OTDR is used as a troubleshooting device to find faults, splices, and bends in fiber optic cables, with an eye toward identifying light loss. Light loss is especially important in fiber optic cables because it can interfere with the transmission of data. An OTDR can detect such light loss and pinpoint trouble areas, facilitating the maintenance and repair process.

Last year, Telecommunications applications, led in relative market share of the worldwide consumption value of handheld OTDRs and multi-test units with initial OTDR use and add-on OTDR modules.

The fastest annual growth, however, is forecasted for the consumption of OTDRs in the Private Networks, due to the increase optical fiber deployment in LANs (local area networks), campus (LAN extension inter-building, LAN-to-LAN and redundant lines), and (very large) Data Centers (DCs), driven by critical high-speed data applications.

Private networks require an OTDR solution to accommodate a singlemode or multimode application and test scenario from very short to longer distances. With the exception of Military, the author counts the use of OTDRs by the Government sector in the Private Network category.

Cable TV operations, Military/Aerospace applications, as well as various specialty/other applications are also quantified in this report of the study. The author defines the use of handheld OTDRs in Specialty applications, as units testing the deployment of Sensors, which are not used in the other applications). Specialty applications also include the use of OTDRs in used in Industrial, Laboratory, rental units, other applications and non-specific/miscellaneous.

Product Categories covered in this market forecast:
  • OTDR devices, including pre-installed (initial) capability (embedded/dedicated or module); this category includes multiple test function units, which includes OTDR capabilities
  • Supplementary OTDR modules, which can be added-on (plug into) existing handheld OTDR or multiple test function units/platform devices
The market forecast data are segmented by the following functions:
  • Consumption Value (US$, million)
  • Quantity (number/by 1,000 units)
  • Average Selling Prices (ASP $, each)
Information Base for the Market Forecast

Primary Research This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually since 1994, but updated through March 2018. During this period, analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the fiber optics industry plus private networks, telecommunications, military/aerospace and other communication industries, instrumentation/laboratory - R&D and factory/manufacturing, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of fiber optic test units.

The interviews were conducted principally with:
  • Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of fiber optic test equipment, fiber optic sensors, fiber optic fusion splice equipment, mechanical splice, connectors, transceivers, as well as laser diodes and photodiodes, application-specific ICs, packages, ferrules and cables, substrate materials, optical waveguide and other components used in the fabrication of optoelectronic transceivers, optical fiber, fiber optic cable assemblies and installation apparatus.
  • Design group leaders, engineers, marketing personnel and market planners at major users and potential users of cable, cable assemblies, connectors, installation apparatus, passive devices and transceivers, such as telecommunication transmission, switching and distribution equipment producers, data communications equipment producers (switches, hubs, routers), computer and workstation producers, weapon system, aircraft and spacecraft electronic equipment producers, optical instrumentation system producers and others.
  • Other industry experts, including those focused on standards activities, trade associations, and investments.
The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics. Customers also were interviewed, to obtain their estimates of quantities received and average prices paid, as a crosscheck of vendor estimates. Customer estimates of historical and expected near term future growth of their application are obtained. Their views of use of new technology products were obtained.

The analyst then considered customer expectations of near term growth in their application, plus forecasted economic payback of investment, technology trends and changes in government regulations in each geographical region, to derive estimated growth rates of quantity and price of each product subset in each application. These forecasted growth rates are combined with the estimated baseline data to obtain the long-range forecasts at the lowest detailed level of each product and application.

Secondary Research A full review of published information was also performed to supplement information obtained through interviews.

The following sources were reviewed:
  • Professional technical journals and papers
  • Trade press articles
  • Technical conference proceedings
  • Product literature
  • Company profile and financial information
  • Additional information based on previous market studies
  • Personal knowledge of the research team.
In analyzing and forecasting the complexities of the world region markets for fiber optic test and measurement products, it is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. The members who participated in this report were qualified.

Bottom-up Methodology: The author forecasts are developed initially at the lowest detail level, and then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (last year: 2016), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data. The analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward optical communication equipment usage and economic payback.

The report provides a 10-year forecast of the worldwide market for handheld OTDRs and multiple-test units (platforms) using OTDR modules, as well as supplementary/secondary (add-on) OTDR-based modules.

An Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) is a fiber optic test instrument used as a troubleshooting device to find faults in the optical fiber link.

According to report, the worldwide use of handheld OTDR and associated devices reached $397.8 million in 2017, up from $391.4 million in 2016. Telecommunications reached $288.3 million, representing a 72.5 percent market share, versus 73.7% in the previous year.

The Cable TV sector is forecast to increase in volume (quantity/number of units) at over 5% annually during the forecast period (2017-2027). Market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.

The consumption value of OTDRs in the Private Networks is forecast for very impressive “double-digit” annual growth over most of the next 10-years, due to the increase in optical fiber deployment in LANs (local area networks), campus (LAN extension inter-building, LAN-to-LAN and redundant lines), and (very large) Data Centers (DCs), driven by critical high-speed data applications.
