The global passive optical component market was valued at $39.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $172 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 15.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Optical components such as optical passive optical component, active optical component. optical power splitters, optical couplers, optical encoders, and optical connectors are the major components of optical network system. Passive optical components are also used in FTTH (Fiber to the Home) networks for branching of optical signals, multi/de-multiplexing, and for optical surveillance systems of video signals. Passive optical components do not require electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical conversion during its operation. Passive optical components include not only simple optical connectors and fixed optical attenuators, but also more complicated, electronically controlled, optical devices like switches and variable optical attenuators.

Passive Optical Component Market

The passive optical component market is segmented into Component and Application.

Passive Optical Component Market by Component

By component, the market is divided into optical cables, optical power splitters, optical couplers, optical encoders, optical connectors, patch cords & pigtails, optical amplifiers, fixed &variable optical attenuators, optical transceivers, optical circulators, optical filters, WDM/WDDM, and others. The WDM/WDDM segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2021.

Passive Optical Component Market by Application

By application, the market is segmented into interoffice, loop feeder, FITL, HFC, SONET, and SDH. The SDH segment was the highest revenue contributor to the market in 2021.

Passive Optical Component Market by Region

By region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

The passive optical network is categorized into two types, in terms of its structure, namely gigabit passive optical network (GPON) and Ethernet passive optical network (EPON). GPON terminal devices offer high-speed voice, video and data services to business and residential subscribers. Reliability and last-mile long-reach connection reduces quantity of active switching devices used in a computer network. EPON offers services such as internet protocol television (IPTV) and residential broadband, enterprise services, voice services such as internet and voice connectivity, 3G &4G mobile backhaul, time division multiplexing (TDM), and carriage services.

Major drivers such as high growth in IP traffic, increase in FTTH requirements, demand for scalability in mobile network, advancements in GPON SoC technologies, and high return on investment, and low cost of ownership propel the market growth. However, difficulty in managing failure of PON and less range of network devices connection restrain growth of the passive optical component industry.

Moreover, increase in demand for higher and broadband bandwidth and shift toward high-capacity optical networks provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of passive optical component market size. The passive optical component industy is experiencing significant growth, globally, owing to rise in use in optical fiber network, optical amplifiers, and optical power splitters for passive network. These passive optical components are highly reliable; thus, maintain the quality of fiber material. These components are also priced less. However, higher operational and installation cost is the major factor that restrain growth of the passive optical component market share.

Significant factors include rise in demand for passive optic network, smart phones, tablets, and other electronic devices. In addition, an enhanced efficiency of passive optical components and shift of users toward high-capacity optical networks also propels the passive optical component market growth. The above-mentioned factors collectively create opportunities for the market growth, while factors such as difficulty in managing failure in mobile network communication and less network connection range poses limitations for the market growth. Hence, each factor is expected to have its definite impact on the market during the forecast period.
