The optical interconnect market value, in terms of value importance, is forecasted to grow from ~$3.7B in 2015 to ~$13.0B by 2022, at a compound annual growth rate of ~18.1 percent between 2016 and 2022.

Optical network component makers have witnessed an increased shipment of products for distinct applications including data centers, high-performance computing, and telecommunication networks. It is expected that growing Internet connectivity and increasing need for high-speed data center networks would give impetus to this increase momentum. The main obstacle for the increase ot the optical interconnects market is the high initial cost of installing and implementing optical interconnects for data communication application areas including data centers and comparatively slow commercialization of different optical interconnection-related technologies.

"Chip-level market to benefit maximum traction during the outlook period"

The industry for chip-level interconnects is forecasted to grow at the highest level rate during the estimate period. The increasing adoption of parallel computing and emergence of 3D chips have also led to a sort of data traffic blockage at on-chip and chip-to-chip-level interconnections, which is further increasing the industry demand for chip-level optical interconnects. The multicore processors have made it imperative for extremely quick CPU-to-CPU and CPU-to-memory devices data transmission, which is further pushing the adoption of high-speed optical interconnects at the chip level.

"APAC market for optical interconnects to grow at the maximal rate during the outlook period"

APAC area is forecast to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for optical interconnect market. The quickly rising consumer Internet penetration as well as a very high increase of Internet-based businesses combined with growing spend by government and sectors on upgradation of data communication and telecommunication networks are leading drivers.
