Rise in the deployment of 5G communication networks

The extensive deployment of the 5G network in many countries worldwide is anticipated to create positive impact on fiber optics market, as development of the 5G infrastructure is dependent on the utilization of optical fibers. The optical fibers transmit huge amount of data from one location to another. In order to achieve competitive advantage in the market, the telecom service providers develop new 5G base stations, for the advancement of 5G services. According to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in China, approximately 1.4 million 5G base stations were developed by telecom service providers in China (as of March 2022), supporting network traffic of more than 500 million users in the country.

Growing prevalence of fiber optics in smart city projects

According to the United Nations (UN) projections, urbanization will add 2.5 billion people to the world’s urban population by 2050, implying that about 68% of the world’s population is expected to live in cities. Governments worldwide address the concerns of the massive increase in population through smart city projects. The development of smart cities requires interconnected and interrelated technologies for transfer, capturing and translating data in order to strengthen urban infrastructure. The fiber optics are utilized to have ultra-broadband and low latency communication in cities, compared to the conventional copper cable network, which has its own limitations. Therefore, the development of smart cities is anticipated to fuel the demand for fiber optics.
