Increase in demand for compact and energy-efficient transceiver

Due to energy-efficient characteristics, the rising demand for low-cost transceivers propelled their sales across telecom and data center applications. Currently, the smaller, cheaper, and energy-efficient optical transceivers have high demand in the market. Since the introduction of the CFP module, various improvements in the technological segment have resulted in the development of compact form factors. Data centers and enterprises require longer reach and high data transmission rates, which leads to increased port density and efficient power consumption. It is enough to increase the market growth for low-cost optical transceivers. The surge in demand for low-cost transceivers boosted the market for this segment with offerings from recognized players, such as Broadcom (US), which offers cost-effective SFF optical transceiver modules for data center applications, and Lumentum (US) offers SFP+ optical transceiver modules for metro networks, Accelink (China) offers multi-channel 100/400G optical transceivers for datacom application.

The producers of optical transceivers are concentrating more on R&D for serving different applications in the metro network, data center interconnect, long haul applications, and others, which require optical transceivers to be compatible with the complex network. Optical transceiver OEMs such as Fujitsu Optical Components (Japan) and Broadcom (US) are companies offering transceivers that are compact and consume little power. This trend is expected to increase the market growth of small and compact optical modules due to their high range of data connectivity at a faster speed. Hence, it can be said that, due to the reduced package size, accelerated deployment in the datacom and telecom applications, and dependency on the already decided standards (IEEE), the strategy of cost leadership and continuous development of smaller and more energy-efficient modules provide large growth potential for the optical transceiver market.

Rising data traffic globally is another factor driving the growth of the market.

The major factors leading to the rise in internet penetration traffic are owing to various factors such as high-bandwidth applications, fast-fixing broadband speeds, increasing online video content, mobile internet users, and the proliferation of connected devices. Additionally, the emergence of new wireless technologies such as ZigBee, among others, has added to the Internet traffic by enabling easy connectivity to a wide range of devices. Furthermore, the market is majorly driven by rising data traffic globally.

Growing telecom infrastructure in developing economies will create ample growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period

The expansion of telecommunication infrastructure will substantially affect developing countries positively. Additionally, With the emergence of IoT, AI, and Big Data, there is an increasing demand for smart devices and other connected applications. The related technologies across telecommunication sectors play an important role in capturing, translating, and transferring data into meaningful information, which is crucial for reinforcing urban infrastructure. Moreover, the backbone for this kind of infrastructural development is high-speed fiber optics networks, which can transfer enormous amounts of data, at high speed, from one end to another.

The emergence of optical transceiver-induced fiber optical networks has enabled high-bandwidth and low latency communication across cities and replaced traditional copper cable networks. The developing economies, including China and South Korea, have also updated their network infrastructure by implementing advanced communication networks across their territories. Furthermore, the Middle Eastern and African countries are also investing in telecom infrastructures to cope with the developments regarding the 5G network. 5G is now widely available on mobile networks in the US, the UK, Japan, Qatar, China, and Kuwait. Moreover, implementing the 5G network requires high-bandwidth oriented fiber optical cables integrated with optical transceivers for fast and reliable data transfers. Therefore, expanding telecom infrastructure across developing economies will drive the optical transceivers market over the forecast period.
