Global Passive Optical LAN (POL) Market is Expected to Reach USD 33.88 billion in 2020: Transparency Market Research

ALBANY, New York, August 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Passive Optical LAN (POL) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020," the global passive optical LAN (POL) market was valued at USD 9.89 billion in 2013, growing at a CAGR of 19.2% from 2014 to 2020 and is estimated to reach USD 33.88 billion in 2020.

Increasing fiber deployments coupled with rising bandwidth requirements across the RoW and APAC regions is driving the passive optical LAN (POL) market. In addition, growth of passive optical networks globally is further propelling the POL market. Accelerating demand for energy efficient and green network solutions is driving the use of passive optical components, thereby driving the POL market. Heavy investments in fiber optic technology and in upgrading research infrastructure globally are also boosting the POL market. Thus, the global passive optical LAN (POL) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.2% over the forecast period.

Components share in the global passive optical LAN market was dominated by the wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers in 2013. The patch cords and pigtails market followed accounting for over 11% of the global market share of components due to high usage in ultra-high capacity networks. Fixed and variable optical attenuators and optical amplifiers markets were analyzed to grow at an above average CAGR following the rising demand for high bandwidths and the growth in fiber optic technologies wherein these components are primarily used.

The global POL market application share was dominated by the SDH application segment. SONET application segment closely followed the SDH application segment. While SDH equipment is accepted globally, SONET equipment is majorly used in the North American region. Thus, both the application segments are expected to continue their dominance during the years 2014 to 2020, on account of their ability to transfer multiple digital bit streams over optical fiber using lasers or LED's.

Increasing fiber deployments coupled with heavy investments in research and technology infrastructure across Asia Pacific and RoW is propelling the global POL market. In addition, growth in networking technologies across both regions is further bolstering the passive optical LAN (POL) market. Owing to the above mentioned reasons, the Asia Pacific region is expected to continue its dominance, followed by North America and Europe, in the global POL market.
