Dell'Oro Group, a well-known optical communication market research organization, recently pointed out that China's optical module supplier market will account for more than 50% of the global market and is expected to dominate the global market in 2020. At the same time, in 2020, for the first time, 5 Chinese manufacturers will enter the top ten in the world at the same time, namely Zhongji InnoLight, Hisense Broadband, Accelerator Technology, Huagong Zhengyuan and Xinyisheng. With the accelerated construction of 5G infrastructure and data centers, the demand for the optical module industry will increase, and the domestic optical module industry will complete the process of upgrading from a low-speed to a high-speed industry.
According to LightCounting data, from 2016 to 2021, the global optical module market scale will increase year by year, with an average year-on-year growth rate of 9%. With the increase in the amount of global data, optical modules are moving towards ultra-high data, and the scale of the global optical module market continues to increase.
Compared with the 4G era, 5G wireless optical modules will occupy a more important position in the entire optical module market, and 5G will become the next outlet for the development of the optical module industry. The characteristics of high bandwidth, low latency, and large connections of 5G wireless communication place higher requirements on the function and performance of optical modules, which will promote the advancement of optical modules and optoelectronic chip technologies.
