Field-installable Fiber Optic Connectors - Global Market Outlook to 2027 -

The "Field-installable Fiber Optic Connector Market Forecast (2017-2027)" report has been added to's offering.

In terms of volume (quantity/units), the worldwide consumption of field-installable fiber optic mechanical connectors reached an estimated 29.55 million units in 2017. The worldwide connector quantity is forecast increase with solid double-digit growth over the next 10 years. The market forecast is segmented by single-mode and multimode SC, LC, ST, and FC connectors.

Field installable mechanical connectors, which are used with multimode optical fiber, are forecast to eventually lead in quantity, ahead of single-mode connector volume, as optical fiber penetration in private data networks (led by multimode-optical fiber) continues to increase during the forecast period (2017-2027).

Single-mode connector growth will be driven primarily by the aggressive deployment of fiber and associated apparatus in the metro/access Telecommunication networks, as well as Private Datacom Local Area Network (LAN) extension applications (campus: building-to-building).

Te volume of field-installed mechanical fiber connectors was led by the Asia Pacific (APAC) region in 2017. The average selling prices are typically much lower in the Asia Pacific region versus the other regions; therefore, the America region was the market share leader, in terms of consumption value, beating-out the APAC region. In terms of volume (the number of connectors), the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) held an 18.2 percent relative market share in 2017.
