Product overview
Fiber optics is the technology used to spread information as pulses of light through strands of fiber ended of glass or plastic over long distances. Fiber Optic is a flexible, transparent fiber prepared from extruded glass (silica) or plastic which can applied as a waveguide, or “light pipe,” to spread light between the two ends of the fiber. It is a cylindrical dielectric waveguide that spreads light along its axis, by the method of total inner reflection. Fiber optics comprise of a see-through core surrounded by a transparent cladding material with a lower index of refraction, by which the light travels by total internal reflection. This phenomenon causes the fiber to turn as a waveguide.

Market Highlights
Fiber Optics Market is predicted to project a notable CAGR of 6.16% in 2031
The adoption of fiber optic cables to send signals with less amount of loss has increased over the period, which drives the growth of the market. Growing demand in FTTX and telecommunications business and technological advancements are chiefly responsible for the increased growth of the market.
Fiber Optics Market: Segments

Fiber Optics Market: Market Dynamics
Increasing demand for internet
The internet is a worldwide system of connected devices. Fiber optics perform as the backbone of the internet. Optical fiber cables are used as the mediator for conveying data from one point to another. According to the reports, 55.6% of the world population uses internet. The growth rate of the number of internet users was around 45%. The rising importance of cloud computing, data transfer and storage, and IoT is driving the use of internet.
Growing need for FTTx
FTTx is any wideband network construction that uses fiber optics as the optical medium to spread data in a local loop used for last mile telecommunications. FTTx includes FTTH, FTTP, FTTB, FTTN, and FTTC. Fiber has changed as a vital component for network growth due to its capability to accommodate advanced bandwidth with greater speeds. Communication applications are growing rapidly, and each of them has features that require higher bandwidth and speed. Some of these progressive applications are video technology, OTT (over-the-top content), and IoT. The increase in use of these applications leads to the need for more network architectures such as FTTH and FTTB.
High investment cost
The early investments in Fiber Optics are quite high. Additionally, installation, connection, and maintenance also acquire higher costs. One of the main factors accountable for this high cost is the complication of the design of Fiber Optics. Furthermore, the cost of plastic and glass optical fiber used is very high. Thus, all these factors lead to the increased overall cost of Fiber Optics.

Impact of the COVID-19 on the Fiber Optics Market
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost every country around the world with the WHO declaring it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 are already starting to be felt, and will significantly affect the Fiber Optics Market in 2021. The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought effects on many features, like aircraft terminations; travel bans and quarantines; restaurants, cafes closed; all outdoor events restricted; over forty countries state of emergency declared; massive slowing of the supply chain; stock market instability; dropping business confidence, building panic among the population, and doubt about future.
