COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The widespread COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world’s economy brutally. Various restrictions were imposed by the governments of different countries such as restriction over the movement of goods & people, and complete lockdown implemented in order to curb the spread of disease. All these restrictions have led to a shortage of raw materials for many industries. Further, it also resulted in disruptions in supply chains.

The fiber optic components market has witnessed significant growth in the recent past. This is because of the increasing internet penetration & data traffic, rising installation of data centers along with the growing demand for reliability and bandwidth. The pandemic has negatively affected the fiber optic components market.

Market Growth Factors:

Rising demand for internet

The internet plays a crucial role for connected devices. Fiber optic is considered as the backbone of the internet as the optical fiber cables are utilized as a medium to transmit the information from one point to another. As per the record of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), in 2018, 51.2% of the total population in the world was using the internet and the growth rate in the same year was 45%. The increasing importance of cloud computing, data storage & transfer and the Internet of Things are surging the use of the internet.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that the number of people using the internet will reach up to 5.0 billion by 2025 from 3.6 billion in 2018. In addition, the number of IoT connections is likely to increase to 25.0 billion by 2025 from 7.5 billion in 2018. The rise in the number of connected devices would result in higher demand for higher bandwidth which further will result in the growth of IoT.

Developing telecom infrastructure

The development of telecommunication infrastructure in the emerging economies would have a positive impact on market growth. The demand for smart devices & other related applications has been increased due to the arrival of artificial intelligence, big data and the internet of things. The interconnected technologies play a crucial role in transferring, capturing, & translating data into meaningful information across the telecommunication sector that is important for reinforcing urban infrastructure. The high-speed fiber optic network is the backbone for such kind of infrastructural development that can transfer a large amount of data with a high speed from one point to another.

Wireless communication systems use microwave radio spectrum to transmit information from one end to another. Radio frequency & fiber space optics (FSO) are among the most commonly used techniques for wireless communication.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Threat to optical network security

Optical networks are at a high risk to various types of security attacks or breaches that are aimed to create disruptions in services and get unauthorized access to carried data that is also called eavesdropping. Fiber optic communication and storage systems are considered safer than conventional copper cable-based systems because hacking into data stored at a fiber optic based system needs highly advanced technology that is available only at the government agencies. But from the past few years inexpensive hardware & software are available in the market.

Hardware devices like electrical/ optical converters transfer the converted through an Ethernet connection. Furthermore, hacking is also possible by the use of sniffer software. The security attacks may lead to the financial losses of the clients and can also cause network-wide disruption to services, which may result in the loss of a large amount of essential data.
