Field-terminated FO fusion splice-on connectors segment forecast through 2030

Jan. 4, 2021

ResearchAndMarkets.com (Dublin, Ireland) announced that it has added the "Field-Terminated Fiber Optic Fusion Splice On Connectors - America Region Market Forecast (2019-2030)" report to its offering.

The report provides data on the consumption value, quantity and average selling prices for the Splice On Connectors (SOC) segment in the Americas region (categorized as North America, and Rest of America). Historical data is presented for 2019 with immediate estimates for the year 2020, plus a year-by-year forecast through 2030 for each significant type of field-terminated fusion splice-on connector.

The forecast for each connector type, in turn, is segmented into each selected communication application. Company profiles of selected competitors and related companies are provided. Additionally, competitive market share estimates (2019) for selected manufacturers of field-terminated fusion splice-on connectors are provided.

As noted by the report's summary:

Field terminated fusion splice on connectors are installed for multiple reasons; the following are a few examples: rapid repairs or first-time installation; limited space situations where pre-terminated fiber cabling may be difficult, such as when the cable assembly needs to pass through small openings such as conduit; splice trays and associated apparatus, as well as storage limitations regarding excess cable slack, which is typical for pre-terminated cable assemblies. Additionally, performance requirements versus mechanical splice options is a major consideration, since fusion splice offers lower insertion loss and better performance because fusion splice provides a continuous connection between two optical fibers.

The research contends that regional fiber-optic connector consumption in the Americas is being driven by a dramatic increase in bandwidth demands beyond the limits of copper. "Technological advances in fiber optics are assuring the migration of fiber closer and closer to the end user," states Research and Markets.

"This translates into demand for shorter links where connectors represent a substantial share of the total installation cost. Cost concerns are being addressed with the introduction of smaller, lower cost and easier to install connectors. The use of multiple-fiber connectors is also increasing, driven by the need for high fiber-count cable density interconnect applications," adds the report's summary.

Notably, the researcher adds:

Because of the impact on production, sales, shipment and implementation caused by the negative effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) [pandemic], we forecast a slowdown or negative movement in consumption in 2020 and, in some categories, a sluggish recovery.
