Posted  by GoPhotonics


Technavio recently published a report on, “Optical Transceiver Market by End-user, Fiber Type and Geography - Forecast and Analysis 2023-2027”. According to the report, the Optical Transceiver Market, is expected to grow by USD 7,372.73 million from 2022 to 2027. As per the latest report, the market will progress at a CAGR of 14.22% during the forecast period. 

This report aid business leaders with an up-to-date analysis that includes the study of the current market scenario, the latest trends and drivers that are likely to influence the market growth, and the overall market environment. An optical transceiver market trend expected to positively impact market growth is the migration of OTNs toward WDM architecture. OTNs have started migrating from SONET technology toward wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) architecture, more prominently to dense WDM (DWDM). Tremendous capacity can be released by carrying multiple wavelengths over a single fiber. This enables network operators to significantly reduce the cost of deploying multiple network overlays per service offering or the cost of deploying a single-channel network.

Optical Transceiver Market 2023-2027: Market Dynamics

Key Drivers

  • Strategic collaboration among supply chain members is the key driver for the growth of the global optical transceiver market.
  • The growing IoT market and increased enterprise data, video, and IP/Internet traffic influence the need for higher bandwidth.
  • Thus, members of the supply chain have initiated strategic collaborations to develop and design common optical transceiver standards to meet the product needs of next-generation data centers. Additionally, various vendors across the world are entering MSAs for the design and development of products that are compatible with offerings from other vendors.
  • Optical transceivers (QSFP, SFP, SFP, XENPAK, and XFP), fiber optic cables, and other networking devices are some of the products that adhere to MSAs.
  • Hence, such factors will influence the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Major Challenges

  • Different architecture requirements are a major challenge impeding the growth of the global optical transceiver market.
  • The network architecture requirements of regional carriers, such as tier 2 and tier 3 carriers, are different from Tier 1 carriers.
  • Tier 1 uses an integrated Switched Optical Transport Network (OTN) as the transport technology.
  • Local carriers may not need such high-capacity networks, as the bandwidth demand from their coverage areas may be significantly lower.
  • Hence, such challenges influence the growth of the optical transceiver market during the forecast period.

Optical Transceiver Market 2023-2027: Segmentation

  • End-user
  • Datacom
  • Telecom
  • Enterprise
  • Geography
  • APAC
  • North America
  • Europe
  • South America
  • Middle East And Africa

The market share growth by the datacom segment will be significant during the forecast period. This segment includes the sales of fiber optic transceivers to major firms that focus on deploying fiber optic networks for data transmission and interconnection purposes at data centers. Data centers widely use optical transceiver modules as photoelectric conversion media. Moreover, they are not only expanding in terms of new deployments but also evolving in terms of network architecture to deliver non-blocking network performance. Hence, such factors will drive the growth of the global optical transceiver market during the forecast period.
