This report provides information on market opportunities for fiber cable going into 5G networks (WDM, PON, Carrier Internet and SDM protocols). Addressable market forecasts (monetary data in US$ & cable lengths in kfm) are for each year from 2020 to 2029. Plans for fiber deployment are outlined and profiles of eleven fiber cable manufacturers are provided (from CommScope to YOFC).
This 5-section report also includes information on 5G frequency allocations, bandwidths and bitrates as well as infrastructure requirements. Methodology is described, global data is provided in the forms of data tables and column charts and analyses of these data are presented.
The objectives of this report are to identify the business opportunities for the fiber-optic cable market in fronthaul and backhaul for 5G. The goal is also to quantify these opportunities in both monetary value (TAM) terms and cable deployment lengths in nine-year forecasts.
This report is focused exclusively on the optical-fiber cable itself. Global and regional information is provided. The prospects for alternatives to fiber optics in the 5G infrastructure are considered, i.e. microwave and millimeter and radio and also free space optics.
At the core of this report are nine-year forecasts for the fiber-optic cable market. The product/market plans of leading actors in this space have been analyzed and appropriate strategies examined for optical networking (and other) players to better penetrate the 5G fronthaul and backhaul market.
The Asia Pacific region is forecasted to dominate the consumption throughout the forecast period. Across Asia Pacific, in countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea, governments are investing considerably in expanding 5G technology, which relies heavily on fiber-optic cables. China's$32 billion vision to make the country wired for 5G technology has created more demand for optical fiber cable in the Asian region.
The strong trends from traditional technologies regarding mobile fronthaul technology enable companies to reduce the deployment and maintenance cost of a 5G network. The increasing adoption of WDM-based fiber fronthaul is driven by the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI's) intensive consumption of optical fiber resources, combined with the lower reliability and lack of supervisory measures for managing fibers. Next-generation PON is suited to 5G fronthaul applications and is now attracting widespread industry attention.
The additional capacity and speed provided by 5G networks results in increasing stress on mobile backhaul networks. 5G backhaul depends on densification of the network, for example the number of small/macro cells within a given geographical area. Major initiatives in the emerging economies are expected to increase investments in mobile backhaul solutions because there is a very strong demand for managing old infrastructure and assets.
