The worldwide consumption value of external modulators in optical fiber communication networks is projected to reach $229 million this year. The consumption (use) of electro-optical (E-O) modulators is set to maintain the market leadership position over electroabsorption (EA) modulators throughout the forecast period. The years of coverage, in this report, are 2013-2018.
The data presented in this market forecast report details optical modulator use for the following transfer rate categories: less than (<) 10Gbps; 10Gbps to less than (<) 40Gbps; 40Gbps and higher.
According to this report, the use of modulators with optical communication transmitters at rates of 10Gbps and higher (but under 40Gbps) is forecast to maintain the lead in relative market share throughout the 2013-2018 timeframe; however, the 40Gbps (and higher) category is forecast to increase at a faster annual pace and set to nearly catch-up in market share.
