Description

Market Analysis of outdoor FSO Used in Non-Military/Aerospace Applications

Free Space Optics (FSO) is a line-of-sight (LOS) technology that uses directed laser beams, which provide optical bandwidth Transmitters and Receivers to link voice, video, and data intelligent transfer. A single FSO link product (from point A to point B) often may incorporate multiple transmitters along with receiver/s to ensure adequate performance, in case of interference.

This ElectroniCast Executive Study Service report provides an analysis and market consumption forecast of transmitter/receiver links used in non-military/aerospace stationary free space optical communication links. This report does not include all of the other parts that compose of the entire FSO system equipment, such as the mounting brackets, mux/demux, drivers, switches, amplifiers, wire/connectors, installation/service, etc.

The 2014-2020 forecast is presented for FSO Transmitter/Receiver (pair) link devices, segmented by distance and data-rate throughput, as detailed in Table 1. The forecast for each selected FSO link device, in turn, is segmented by geographic region:

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

The market forecast data are segmented by the following functions:

  • Consumption Value (US$, million)
  • Quantity (number/units)
  • Average Selling Prices (ASP $, T/R Pair)

Note: The ASP is for a Transmitter/Receiver Pair, which you need to establish a link

Market Data Category List by Distance/Meters and by Throughput/Mbps

  •                                          500 Meters or Less
    •                                          156 Mbps or Lower
    •                                          Higher Than 156 Mbps
  •                                          More Than 500 Meters
    •                                          156 Mbps or Lower
    •                                          Higher Than 156 Mbps

Free Space Optics: Market Forecast by Region

According to ElectroniCast, the worldwide consumption value of FSO Transmitter/Receiver Link Devices used in stationary non-military/ aerospace applications was $37.23 million in 2014. EMEA held a slight lead in terms of relative market share in 2014. The increase in the consumption of FSO links in the America region will be attributed to not only continued upgrades and network facilitation in the United States and Canada, but partly from the accelerating economic growth of major cities in Latin America. Other market dynamics in the American region are increases in communication links needed for growing infrastructures, such as mass transit, security systems, broadcast and telecommunications.

European inner-city urban areas typically are difficult for wire-lines, including optical fiber cable installations; therefore, this fact promotes FSO or other wireless solutions. The APAC region has advanced communication technology deployed especially in Japan; however, other countries, such as Australia, China and India, are not as advanced in campus-wide and metropolitan optical communication deployment.

The APAC region has rapidly expanding market opportunities and therefore, our forecast shows the region with the fastest growth (2014-2020), with the region taking over the leadership position later on in the forecast period.

The market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.
