Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters: Global Market Forecast & Analysis

This is the ElectroniCast analysis and forecast of global market consumption of planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitters used in optical communication applications. For the purposes of this study, ElectroniCast specifically addresses the PLC splitter, using waveguide circuits and aligned fiber optic pigtails, integrated inside a package.

This report also quantifies the PLC splitter chip used in PLC splitter devices, as well as integrated with other PLC chips/functions to fabricate other devices or modules.

The 2013-2018 quantitative market forecast data presented in this study report are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:

  • America (North America, Central and South America)
  • EMEA (Europe, Middle Eastern countries, plus Africa)
  • APAC (Asia Pacific)

PLC Splitter Applications analysis covered in this report:

  • Service Providers Telecommunication and Cable TV (CATV)
    • Passive Optical Network (PON), FTTX, Other
  • Fiber Optic Test/Measurement
  • Private Enterprise/Data Centers/Local Area Networks (LANs)
  • Harsh Environment (Military, Industrial, Other)

The forecast for each product-level is presented by function:

  • Consumption Value ($, Million)
  • Number of Units (Quantity in 1,000)
  • Average Selling Prices ($, each)

PLC splitters will continue to contribute an important role in Fiber to the Home (FTTH) networks by allowing a single passive optical network (PON) interface to be shared among many subscribers. PLC splitters are available in compact sizes; therefore, they can be used in aerial apparatus, pedestals or in-ground as well as rack mount or other module-based value-added product. Installation is simple using a variety of connector types or fusion splicing.
