This report provides a ten-year forecast/competitive analysis of the AOC market, which the researcher has been covering for a decade. New in this report, is discussion of changes occurring as western AOC suppliers merge and Chinese suppliers emerge.
Markets for Active Optical Cables: 2017 - 2026, the researcher claims revenues from AOCs will reach $8.9 billion by 2022 compared with $1.1 billion in 2017. Much of this growth will come from a rush to install 100 Gbps links and the growth of hyperscale data centers. CIR is also seeing important new opportunities emerge for AOCs in 25 GigE, digital signage and personal computing.
The report focuses on the changes occurring as western AOC suppliers merge and Chinese suppliers grow market share. It also discusses applications for AOCs in data centers (Ethernet, InfiniBand and storage networks); digital signage; consumer electronics/personal computing (USB, HDMI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, PCIe, etc.); military networks; and campuses.
CIR believes that although there may be as many as 200 firms selling AOCs today the market is dominated by 3c-Link, 10Gtek, Amphenol, Broadcom, Finisar, Gigalight, Mellanox, Molex, Samtec, Siemon and TE Connectivity. All of these firms are profiled in this report.
This 110-page report provides granular ten-year AOC market forecasts in both volume and value terms. Breakouts include: transceiver type, MSA, data rate, cable length, fiber type, application and country of use. CIR has been providing coverage of AOC markets for a decade and these forecasts are based on a newly revised forecasting model.
