Approximately $14 billion in revenue comes from optical networking globally today. The optical networking industry is expected to grow rapidly, with a CAGR of 8.4%, to reach a value of $24.8 billion by 2029.

Optical Networking Market Size (2022) US$ 14 Bn
Sales Forecast (2029) US$ 24.8 Bn
Global Market Growth Rate (2022 to 2029) 8.4% CAGR
Share of Top 5 Players 50%

The global optical networking market is anticipated to reach revenues of US$ 24 Bn by the end of 2029, with a strong CAGR between 2022 and 2029. According to a recent Future Market Insights (FMI) report, the introduction of fifth-generation (5G) wireless systems will be the main driver of adoption.

According to the report, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) will continue to be a sizable market for optical network providers due to the region’s mobile network operators’ strong growth expectations for 5G technology. In order to provide front haul for Cloud-RANs (radio access networks) and backhaul for dense, fast networks, 5G will rely on fiber as an upgraded radio technology.

Increasing Demand for ROADM-based Optical Network to Propel Sales

Network providers are moving to more automated, software-driven, high scalable connections that offers new cost savings, and efficient service agility.

There is a growing demand for ROADM-based optical foundation that depends on instrumented photonics, flexible, and Layer 0 software to control and scale the connection for maximum capacity at the lowest power, space, and cost per bit. Therefore, introduction of high-speed analogue circuit is expected to drive the growth of the global optical networking market.

COVID-19 Impact On Optical Networking DemandThe COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the optical networking market. The demand for residential, corporate, and industrial building automation systems has fallen as a result of lockdown measures and the halting of non-essential businesses.
