Methodology
For the research report, rigorous primary as well as secondary research was performed in order to track the market accurately. Key data for estimating the market, such as top-down and bottom-up models, were developed to determine value-wise trends and estimate the global fiber optics market. Key players in the fiber optics market has been identified through review of secondary sources such as industry whitepapers, annual reports, published reports by credible agencies, financial reports and published interviews of Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) from leading companies.

During the primary interviews, KOLs also suggested some other fiber optics producers that were not included under the initial scope of the study. We have further refined the company profile section by adding suggested producers of fiber optics by KOLs. Generally, KOLs include Chief Executive Officer (CEO), general managers, vice presidents, sales directors, market executives, R&D directors, product managers, procurement managers and export managers. During the research process, all the major stakeholders across the value chain of fiber optics were contacted for conducting primary interviews.

In the first phase of the study, revenue for the fiber optics market was determined through reviewing annual sales reports, analyzing related industry reports, tracking global import and export trends, and monitoring financial parameters related to the market, among others.

In the second phase of the study, we conducted primary interviews with KOLs from leading players in the market to verify our initial estimation gathered through secondary sources. Based on primary interviews, some of the initial findings were kept intact and other initial findings were refined. The final value forecasts for the fiber optics market were derived through a series of primary interviews with KOLs.

For some segments in the fiber optics market, there were no secondary hard data available. In those cases, price trends, inflation rate, industrial production indices, purchasing managers’ indices (PMI), etc. were used to estimate data for these market segments. During primary interviews, these estimations were verified by KOLs.
