In response to the explosive growth in the optical components market, David Chaffee, a 30-year optical components veteran, has teamed with Laurin Publishing, the photonics industry’s premier publisher, to offer a seven-year strategic guide to what’s trending in the fiber optic components market. Billions of dollars are generated every year as savvy optical components vendors keep one step ahead of this aggressive and expanding market. As this boom continues to play out, The Market for Fiber Optic Components: A Seven-Year Forecast offers a comprehensive, in-depth, year-by-year analysis. Solid growth is projected over the life of this report, driven by global expansion of wireless-generated and Internet traffic. Only fiber optics will be able to handle the expanding loads on our global networks, the report finds. As chronicled in the May issue of Photonics Spectra magazine, fiber optic laser manufacturers can now make more than 1 million lasers in a month to help satisfy major demand in the fiber-to-the-home and other markets. Optical fiber cable is also reaching record growth levels. In all, the report identifies numerous growth sectors where business and technology will intersect between now and 2017. The Market for Fiber Optic Components: A Seven-Year Forecast is available in print and digital format and is being sold for a single-user price ($2500) as well as for a corporate license price ($5000). The table of contents and an order form are available at www.photonics.com/reports/fiber, or by calling Owen Broch at (413) 499-0514, Ext. 108.
