Global Fiber Optic Component Attenuator Market Forecast 2017-2023 –

The “Global Fiber Optic Component Attenuator Market Forecast” report has been added to’s offering.

The global volume (quantity) of component-level fiber optic attenuators reached an estimated 16.6 million units in 2017. During the 2017-2023 timeframe, the value is forecasted to increase at an average annual growth rate of 3.9 percent to reach 20.9 million fiber optic component-level attenuators in 2023. The Telecommunications application is forecast to dominate the consumption of fiber optic attenuators throughout the forecast period.

In the study, the market is presented by the following product categories: Fixed (Bulkhead/Plug/Panel Mount and In-Line) and Variable Optical Attenuators (Manually-controlled and Electrically-controlled).

The use of variable optical attenuators (VOAs) with DWDM, ROADM, optical switching, and various other applications is contributing to the steady increase of this particular component, said Stephen Montgomery, Director of the Fiber Optics group.

Component-level electronic variable optical attenuators (EVOAs) are available utilizing various methods; however, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is currently the most popular technique. According to the author, the use of manually controlled and electronic VOAs reached an estimated 2.5 million units in 2017.
