DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Dark Fiber Networks Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2018 To 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The global dark fiber networks market is set to expand with a double digit CAGR throughout the forecast period to cross US$ 11 billion by 2026, primarily due to rapidly growing internet traffic worldwide.
The global internet traffic was expected to cross 100 petabytes per month in 2017 with a CAGR of over 25% through 2011 to 2017. This has resulted into high demand for internet bandwidth to facilitate transport of high volumes of data.
Dark fiber networks have emerged as a viable solution for different organizations seeking enhanced network management and communication. With continued penetration of internet services, the demand for internet bandwidth is estimated to remain rampant over the coming years. This is estimated to remain the most prominent factor responsible for dark fiber networks market growth across the worldwide.
The overall dark fiber networks market is segmented on the basis of fiber type, network type and end-user. On the basis of fiber type, the market is led by multi-mode accounting for more than 2/3rd of the total market value. This is primarily due to higher utilization of dark fiber through underground fiber networks.

Further, Facebook operates majority of its data transport through previously unused dark fiber networks'. With continually rising volumes of data worldwide, dark fiber networks are set to witness higher demand in the following years.
