Global market for Active Optical Cables (AOC) is projected to surpass US$1 billion by 2018, driven by growing demand for higher bandwidth speeds, rise in processor speeds, and advancements in fiber optics technology.
Continuous advancements in fiber optics technology resulted in enhanced performance of fiber optic cables, generating huge demand for active fiber optics during the past few years. Advancements in cabling technology and new designs that emerged on the market in 2010 have resulted in a significant growth in demand for Active Optical Cables (AOCs). Demand for AOC is on the rise in end-use markets such as consumer electronics, data centers and digital signage, mainly driven by enhanced efficiency of AOC over the traditional copper cables in terms of reach, weight and flexibility. As a result, AOCs are increasingly replacing copper cables in the market.
AOCs are at present heavily dependent on InfiniBand protocol. InfiniBand interface in commercial applications such as supercomputers and server applications have been critical to growth of the overall AOC market in recent years. The InfiniBand segment moved from the traditional 10G QSFP+ format to 14G FDR QSFP+ fiber optic cables, making it the strongest AOC application till date. The AOC market is also benefitted by the increasing attention of vendors towards HDMI, Thunderbolt and USB protocols in consumer and video protocols. Other protocols such as HDMI, USB3.0 and DisplayPort are expected to gain traction in future.
