Planar Lightwave Circuit Splitters Market Forecast

Fiber-to-the-Home deployment dominates the PLC splitter marketplace… Aptos, CA (USA) – February 20, 2014  — ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market/technology consultancy, today announced the report release of their market forecast of the global consumption of Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) splitters used in Fiber Optic Communication Networks. According to the ElectroniCast market study, the consumption value of component-level (compact device) PLC splitters reached $529.6 million in 2013. 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. “The PON-based Fiber-to-the-Home network application dominates the worldwide PLC splitter consumption value in 2014,” stated Stephen Montgomery, Director of the Fiber Optics Components group at ElectroniCast Consultants. “The American region is forecast for flat annual growth (just over 1%); however, the EMEA region is set for 7% per year and the APAC region is forecast to increase at 15% per year, for the component-level PLC splitters, during the 2013-2018 timeframe cover by the ElectroniCast study,” Montgomery added. DK Photonics – www.dkphotonics.com  specializes in designing and manufacturing of high quality optical passive components mainly for telecommunication, fiber sensor and fiber laser applications,such as PLC Splitter, WDM, FWDM, CWDM, DWDM, OADM,Optical Circulator, Isolator, PM Circulator, PM Isolator, Fused Coupler, Fused WDM, Collimator, Optical Switch and Polarization Maintaining Components, Pump Combiner, High power isolator, Patch Cord and all kinds of connectors.
