Chromatic Dispersion Compensation Filter Modules: Global Market Forecast

The American region, with its fair share of new higher data rate and WDM-based optical link deployment, led in filter-based DCM consumption in 2012; however, the use of filter-based DCMs in the Asia Pacific region (APAC) is forecast for much faster growth and eventually taking-over the lead in relative market share. The EMEA region is also forecast with faster annual consumption value growth versus the American region.

This study report presents the consultant firm's 2012-2017 market review and forecast of the consumption (value, quantity and average prices) of filter-based chromatic dispersion compensation modules in optical communication networking; also forecast data of the worldwide consumption value of electronic dispersion chips (EDC) solutions and dispersion-compensating fiber (DCF) modular solutions are provided.

Packaged filter devices (modules) are typically comprised having FBGs (Fiber Bragg Gratings) or etalon-based elements. In this study report, an forecasts and analysis for the following product areas are provided:

  • Fixed Chromatic Dispersion Compensation Filter Modules (DCMs)
  • Tunable Chromatic Dispersion Compensation Filter Modules (DCMs)

The market data 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)

According to ElectroniCast, there is a substantial difference in average selling prices (ASPs) between fixed- and tunable-type DCMs. The Tunable DCMs tend to increase in channel capacity and capability at the rate of demand; therefore, the ASPs (average selling prices) for the Tunable DCMs are forecast to increase periodically.

There are three common device techniques to deal with chromatic dispersion in optical networks, which are studied by ElectroniCast:

  • Dispersion-compensating fiber (DCF)
  • Chromatic dispersion-compensating filter modules, such as Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) or etalon-based
  • Chips: Electronic dispersion chips (EDC) and Photonic
