The global optical transport network market grew at a CAGR of around 13% during 2015-2020.

An optical transport network (OTN) refers to an industry-standard protocol that provides the functionality of signal transport, signal multiplexing, routing, management, and supervision of the client’s data. It includes a set of optical network elements connected via optical fiber links. The advanced multiplexing efficiency of OTN enables the transportation of various traffic types, such as ethernet traffic, multimedia traffic, and various IP-based services. It also offers reliable error correction mechanisms, service transparency for client signals, asynchronous mapping, simplified network design, and reduced deployment costs. As a result, OTN is widely adopted across various sectors, including IT and telecom, healthcare, government, BFSI, etc.

The growing telecommunication sector coupled with the expansion of digital traffic based on multimedia services, social media, VoIP, mobile applications, and cloud computing, is primarily driving the market for OTN. Furthermore, the rising demand for higher bandwidth-based applications for faster and reliable services across the government and financial sectors is also propelling the market growth. The escalating shift from Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET)/ Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) networking towards optical transport network based on its high-capacity multiplexed applications over multi-domains is further augmenting the market. Additionally, the increasing development of wireless infrastructures along with the emergence of 5G mobile network services has created substantial growth opportunities for the OTN market. Furthermore, the growing adoption of 5G services for Internet-of-Things (IoT)-based solutions, virtual/augmented reality, and autonomous vehicle management is also propelling the market growth. Moreover, the rising penetration of cloud-based services along with their software-centric network paradigm has enabled the telecom vendors to focus on several service innovations.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has also had a positive impact on the optical transport network market due to the rising prevalence of remote working. As a result, there is an increasing demand for higher bandwidth applications for faster and secured services, which is currently driving the market. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global optical transport network market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
