DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global and China Optical Fiber Preform Industry Report, 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Optical fiber preform, a core raw material of optical fiber products, accounts for around 70% of the profit of optical fiber. Global optical fiber preform output and demand were 14.9kt and 13.8kt in 2016, up 16.0% and 10.2% from a year ago, respectively, and are expected to reach 30.2kt and 25.6kt in 2021 separately, driven by rapid development of the optical fiber and cable market.
China, the world's largest producer of and source of demand for optical fiber preform, produced 6.1kt and demanded 7.668kt in 2016, 41.0% and 55.4% of the world's total, respectively, indicating a supply-demand gap of 1.568kt, still in a state of short supply. However, as Chinese enterprises improve optical fiber preform technology and put production lines into operation, the gap has narrowed gradually, from 68.4% in 2010 to only 20.4% in 2016 and estimated 18% or so in 2021.
There are about 20 major optical fiber preform producers worldwide in this highly-concentrated market, including Corning, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Shin-Etsu Chemical, Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable, and Hengtong Optic-electric. Yangtze Optical Fibre and Cable ranks first by global market share (based on output), 13.4% in 2016, followed by Corning (about 12.9%).
The country's efforts to promote tri-networks integration, Broadband China, 5G Construction and Internet Plus have brought unprecedented opportunities for the Chinese optical fiber and cable market, driven rapid development of the optical fiber preform market, and stimulated Chinese optical fiber preform producers to expand capacity.
