Optical Transceiver Market Outlook – 2030

The global optical transceiver market size was valued at $7.18 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $27.25 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 15.1% from 2021 to 2030. 

Optical transceiver is a powerful, small device that can transmit as well as receive data. In optical communication and networking, data is sent via an optical fiber in the form of pulses of light. The transceiver is an important part of such network, as it is used to convert electrical signals to light signals and vice versa. Depending on the type of data to be transported as well as the speed and distance, various transceivers are available for different tasks.

Analyst Review

The optical transceiver module is the major building block in the fiber-optic network, which conveys the information across communication channels for optical systems. The speed and stability of the network are gaining high traction in the market, owing to high bandwidth and low attenuation brought by fiber-optics.

Moreover, the optical transceiver module is evolving rapidly to meet the escalating demand for speed and capacity. The tendency is that the fiber-optic transceiver module is evolving to have a smaller size and higher data rate. This makes it optimum to use in data centers, wherein large data is processed. Hence, optical transceivers are of high significance in the modern high-capacity networks.

Introduction of in embedded and high-density integrated optical transceivers, owing to huge investment in development of communication infrastructure is expected to notably contribute toward the growth of the global market. For instance, in January 2020, FireFly demonstrated embedded optical modules that consumed less power and were optimal for liquid cooling purposes. Apart from innovation, the industry is seeing an increased number of merger and acquisitions activities along with partnerships to expand its market presence and support prominent vendor's data center and telecommunication module offerings.
