AUG 5, 2013: Bharat Book Bureau presents the market report "Fiber Optic Circulators Global Market Forecast and Analysis (2012-2017)" This report by ElectroniCast Consultants provides a detailed fiber optic circulator market forecast for each year,
Fiber Optic Circulators are non-reciprocal devices, which means that changes in the properties of light passing through the device are not reversed when the light passes through in the opposite direction. The optical device is commonly used in a wide variety of systems, here are just a few examples: dispersion compensation, optical sensors, optical amplifiers, WDM systems, optical add/drops multiplexing (OADMs) and test/measurement instruments such as optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs), remote fiber (optic) test systems (RFTS) and other test equipment.
Fiber optic circulator functionality is an excellent candidate for integrating with a transmitter and receiver into a single package. Circulators provide an ideal solution for coupling devices into a fiber optic network without the inherent 3dB loss of an optical coupler. Circulators directional functionality enable simultaneously adding and dropping signals from a fiber as well as coupling other optical signal processing devices.
Fiber optic circulators typically fall into two main classes: 4-port waveguide circulators based on Faraday rotation of propagating waves in a magnetized material, and 3-port "turnstile" or "Y-junction" circulators based on cancellation of waves propagating over two different paths near a magnetized material.
During 2012-2017, the worldwide value is forecast to increase at an average annual growth rate of 8.4 percent. The consumption value is forecast to increase with rising quantity growth partially offset by declining average prices.
The American region (South, Central and North America), was the leader in terms of relative market share in 2012 with the consumption value of fiber optic circulators; however, the Asia Pacific region (APAC) region led by “green-field” telecommunication deployment is forecast to take the market share lead in 2013.
The Europe, Middle East and Africa region (EMEA) consumption of fiber optic circulators is forecast to lag behind; growing faster than the American region, but only one-third as fast as the APAC region.
Consumption is based on the geographical (region) location where the fiber optic circulator is first used into a higher-level sub-component, component, or apparatus. All values and prices, reported by ElectroniCast Consultants, are at factory as-shipped levels, and are in current dollars, which include the effect of a forecasted 5 percent annual inflation rate over the forecast period.
3-Port Leads in Fiber Optic Circulator Value In terms of worldwide consumption value, the 3-Port fiber optic circulators hold an estimated 80% market share in 2013. According to the ElectroniCast estimate, over 70% of the 3-Port fiber optic circulators in 2013 are used in Telecommunication applications.
Telecommunications is set to maintain its dominant market share lead throughout the forecast period. Specialty applications (R&D laboratory, sensors, test equipment, oil/gas, other) are set to maintain the position of second-place, according to ElectroniCast. Figure 1 shows the global consumption value market share (%) estimate of the fiber optic circulator market for this year, segmented by Port-count.
