Research and Markets: Market for Optical Components Continues to Grow Despite Flat Sales of Networking Equipment

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6qvq99/market_for) has announced the addition of the "Market for Optical Components Continues to Grow Despite Flat Sales of Networking Equipment" report to their offering.

Sales of optical components and modules used in datacom and telecom networks are on target to set up a new record in 2014. However, revenues of networking equipment suppliers remained stubbornly flat so far and their guidance for the rest of 2014 is not encouraging. While numerous network upgrade projects continue worldwide, fierce competition among suppliers of telecom equipment negatively impacts their revenue growth, but increasing deployments of 100G in telecom networks has helped the suppliers of optics in 2013. Operators of mega datacenters tend to by-pass traditional datacom equipment suppliers, such as Cisco, but they still purchase optics, including 10GigE and 40GigE transceivers.

In addition to in-depth market analysis, this report offers summaries of the latest business developments and financial performance of leading equipment manufacturers. Our Quarterly Sales database, offered with the report, includes sales data on more than 100 product categories covering the period from Q1 2013 to Q2 2014 for SONET/SDH, Ethernet, Fibre Channel, CWDM, DWDM, FTTx and Wireless Infrastructure transceivers, as well as high speed optical interconnects, including active optical cables and embedded optical modules. The report also discusses market guidance for Q2 and Q3 of 2014 and potential changes to LightCounting's market forecast published in July 2014. Data for the report was provided by more than 25 leading module and component vendors.
