Planar Lightwave Circuit Splitter Market Overview:

Planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitters regulate the power of optical signals via splitting and routing, delivering reliable light distribution. They have a broader operating wavelength range, i.e. 1260-1650 nm as compared to low-cost fused biconic-tapered (FBT) couplers. The planar lightwave circuit splitter offers a comprehensive temperature range, improved uniformity, enhanced reliability, and a smaller size. PLC is a recent technology where waveguides are fabricated using lithography and a silica glass substrate. These splitters are known to offer accurate and even splits with minimum loss. It is widely used in PON networks to realize optical signal power splitting.
The developments in fiber optics field has transformed the ways of transmitting data over long distances with minimum loss and are immune to electromagnetic inferences. Such favorable characteristics are expected to further enhance market in the future. Innovations and technological advancements have resulted in overall cost reduction and consumer awareness, which in turn are expected to drive the industry growth over the forecast period. The increase in e-business activities by various business organizations is a reason to increase in the demand of internet speed, drives the demand for effective optical network. Rising demand for 5G/4G networks globally is expected to augment the industry over the forecast period. However, the manufacturing process is complex, and more expensive for engaging in smaller ratio. PLC splitters are expected to explore opportunities in surveillance, standard telephone cables, and sensors application segments
