Market for Optics in China:

China - A Major Opportunity for Suppliers of Optics

January 2018- $5,000




Demand for optics from Chinese service providers surprised the industry in 2010-2017. It started with massive deployments of FTTx systems and continued with optical fronthaul in the access markets. Adoption of next generation 10G PON and 25G fronthaul optics will sustain demand for access optics in 2018-2022. First deployments of 100G DWDM technology in core networks set up high expectations for scale of future projects. Chinese Internet companies are starting to build datacenters requiring more optical connectivity inside and outside of these facilities. Integrating internet commerce with networking infrastructure is a major part of Smart City programs prioritized by the government.

This report discusses current and future infrastructure projects of Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and Internet Content Providers (ICPs) in China. It analyses the impact of these projects on the demand for optical networking equipment, optical modules and components. It includes profiles of the leading Chinese CSPs, ICPs, equipment manufacturers and suppliers of optical component and modules. The report includes a companion spreadsheet containing a detailed 5-year shipment and revenue forecast of optical component demand in China.
