Published: 14 Feb 2017

The global fiber optic test equipment (FOTE) market is estimated to experience an approximate 6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 to 2022. The objective of this study is to identify the key trends prevailing in the FOTE market in the base year 2015 and what factors boost and restrain market growth. In particular, it also discusses the product areas that bolster growth for the forecast period 2016 to 2022. With 2015 as the base year, the research provides estimates of the market size and future growth prospects up to 2022. For this purpose, a specific methodology is followed that includes discussion with senior management of FOTE manufacturers that is supported by secondary research. Discussion highlights: • In-depth analysis with market sizing of product segments: Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR), Optical Light Source (OLS), Optical Power Meter (OPM), Fiber Inspection Probe (FIP), Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS), Remote Fiber Test System (RFTS), Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA), and others. Others include Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD) Test Equipment, Tunable Laser (TL), Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM), Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM), and Chromatic Dispersion (CD). • There is a regional perspective of demand pattern in various advanced and emerging markets: North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia-Pacific, and emerging regions. • There is an application analysis of research and development (R&D), manufacturing, and installation and maintenance (I&M). • End-user analysis of telecommunication companies and carriers, enterprises, cable television service providers, government and defense, fiber-optic component (FO Comp), and cable manufacturers, and Independent research laboratories (IR labs). • Further, market growth for regional and market segments are forecasted and an in-depth analysis of the competitive situation, including vendors' market shares ,is included. Integrated/combinational FOTE is on the rise because it adds more value to the end user. These instruments are modular in nature and can be used for multiple test scenarios. With 40 gig and 100 gig Ethernet deployments on the rise, this is expected to boost the sales of FOTE going forward. With new technologies, the test equipment is also getting smarter and priced at a higher rate than the basic instruments. Vendors who are able to offer all kinds of benchtop and portable instruments will be able to balance their portfolio to address all applications of end users and serve customer needs accordingly. This will also help them increase their customer base and gain market share. The study offers a holistic picture of the opportunities, challenges, and threats for the FOTE test equipment vendors across the globe.
