The development prospect of overseas market of leading optical fiber and cable enterprises
The overall industry demand for optical fiber and cable is picking up, and the volume and price are increasing. Since the beginning of this year, affected by factors such as the rise in raw material prices and the recovery of industry demand, the price of scattered fiber of optical fiber and cable has continued to rise, and the price of scattered fiber of G.652 ordinary optical fiber has climbed to a historically high level. In addition, China Mobile's centralized procurement of ordinary optical cables in 2021 increased by 20% year-on-year, with an average bid price of 64 yuan per core kilometer, an increase of about 58% compared with 2020.
AIXTON actively participates in global project bidding, and its 22-year performance is flexible. At the same time, overseas demand continued to improve, and leading fiber optic cable companies benefited significantly. In the first half of 2021, due to the relaxation of overseas new crown pneumonia epidemic prevention and control measures to a certain extent and the acceleration of investment in communication network infrastructure in various countries, overseas optical fiber and cable demand continued to grow.
On January 21, AIXTON will continue to focus on the strategic layout of "diversification + internationalization" in the future, and strengthen the company's core competitiveness through continuous innovation. "In addition to the breakthrough results achieved by ultra-low attenuation G.654.E optical fibers in many application tests, the company is expanding new growth points in an all-round way, focusing on the research and development of optical fibers and cables, and expanding diversified optical communication products such as optical modules; Vertical industry application market, take advantage of products such as optical fiber and cable and wiring advantages, and provide end-to-end network solutions for vertical industries.
Global fiber optic cable market demand scale
CRU (United Kingdom Commodity Research Institute) pointed out that the global optical fiber and cable market has improved, especially in overseas markets. Under the stimulus of the epidemic, the digitalization process has been further accelerated, and the investment in communication network infrastructure has accelerated in various countries, and the demand for optical fiber and cable has continued to grow.
According to CRU's forecast, more than 25 million FTTH/B household users will be added in Europe in 2022. Affected by this, the demand for optical cables in Western Europe will increase by 11.3% year-on-year in 2022, and will increase at a rate of about 6% per year thereafter.
In the U.S., with the signing of the Infrastructure Bill, about $65 billion will be spent on broadband networks, in addition to the $20.4 billion Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) previously used to provide broadband Internet services to rural and remote areas , the demand for fiber optic cables in the United States will also increase significantly.
