)-- ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market and technology research consultancy addressing the optical communications industry, today announced the release of an extensive report covering the worldwide market for Fiber Optic Fusion Splicers. As the market leader, over 29,000-new micro-sized fixed (cladding) alignment single fiber fusion splice machines were put into action worldwide in 2016. This report provides an analysis of 2016 product use, plus a 10-year forecast of the consumption of fiber optic fusion splice machines. These fusion splicers are used in all of the major applications, such as Telecommunications, Cable TV, Private Data Networks, Military/Aerospace, and various specialty uses.
A Fusion Splicer is a specialized instrument used to join optical fibers together. This market research study report covers the use of fusion splice machines used for fiber optic-based communication applications. Besides the micro/handheld-size splicers, other machine-types studied by the consultancy include bench-top models and core-to-core alignment models.
“The Asia Pacific region (APAC) is the largest user of fusion splicers. The volume of fusion splicers put into action in the Asia Pacific region is expected increase from 44.7 thousand units in 2016 to 51 thousand units in 2026; however, peaking in the year 2020,” said Stephen Montgomery, Director of the Fiber Optics group at ElectroniCast Consultants. “Single-fiber machine-types outnumber multi-fiber splicers by a multiple of three (3x) in China in 2017,” Montgomery added.
