Optical components such as optical cables, optical power splitters, optical couplers, optical encoders, and optical connectors are the major components of optical network system. Passive optical components are used majorly in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks for leveraging the optical signals, multi/de-multiplexing, and in optical surveillance systems to generate video signals. Passive optical components do not have the need to convert electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical conversions during operations. These components include simple optical connectors and fixed optical attenuators, and additionally, more complicated, electronically controlled, optical devices such as switches and variable optical attenuators. The market for passive optical components is driven due to significant growth in IP traffic, increased FTTH requirements, demand for scalability in mobile network, advancement in GPON SoC technologies and better return on investment and low cost of ownership. Nevertheless, complicated process of managing failure of passive optical networks (PON) and limited range of network device connection are some of the major factors that would limit the market growth. Some of the opportunities that would drive the market are growing demand for higher and broadband bandwidth and shift towards high capacity optical networks.
