Global Harsh Environment Fiber Optic Components/Devices Market Forecast to 2022 –

The “Harsh Environment Fiber Optic Components/Devices Market Forecast” report has been added to’s offering.

The value of HEFO components are forecasted to increase at an average annual growth rate of 11.8% (2017-2022) and 8.6% during the 2nd-half of the forecast period (2022-2027), reaching $7.26 billion in 2027. Market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.

The Military/Aerospace category is set to maintain the leadership position, in terms of value, throughout the forecast period; however in terms of volume (quantity of units), the Commercial/Industrial is set to maintain the dominant leadership position; HEFO components are priced relatively much lower in Commercial/Industrial applications versus Military/Aerospace applications.

Through the 1990-2000 decade, the harsh environment active fiber optic component consumption was dominated by system contractor’s captive production. These components and parts typically were custom-designed for the specific application, starting from purchased commercial units, which were then modified (a substantial design effort) to meet the environmental requirements of a specific missile, spacecraft, aircraft or other system. Some of these system contractors now are transitioning into supplying these components to other contractors, and some commercial-component vendors are developing harsh environment versions of their commercial components.

A major share of harsh environment fiber optic cable assemblies (both plastic and glass optical fiber based) are provided by connector vendors and by specialized cable assembly operations. An estimated 48% of the total worldwide value of $2.74 billion is attributed to the available merchant market relative to industry standard product serving the rugged or harsh environment demand in 2017.
