The volume of data traveling through the Internet continues to increase, as more number of devices are being connected and new applications are being developed. Optical fiber is the only transmission medium capable of supporting this explosive growth. Common applications, such as web browsing and high-definition videos, constitute approximately 66% of this traffic. Attributes of fiber optic cables are expected to drive their use in end-use industries such as IT & telecommunication and healthcare. Thus, rising demand for high-speed connectivity is expected to drive the global fiber optic cable market at a significant pace in the near future.

Costs of fiber optic cables, components, and hardware are gradually decreasing. Installation costs of fiber optic cables are higher than those of copper cables, owing to the skill required for termination. Generally, fiber is costlier than copper in the short run. However, it can actually cost less in the long run. Maintenance cost of fiber is much less; it has much less downtime; and it requires less hardware for network installation. Due to these factors, fiber optic cables are expected to witness high demand across the globe during the forecast period.
