Global Free Space Optics (FSO) and Visible Light Communication Market is valued approximately USD 282.6 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 36% over the forecast period 2019-2026. Free space optics (FSO) is a communication technology that utilizes the traveling light in the free space such as outer space, air and vacuum for the optical communication purpose. This technology is very beneficial in conditions where the natural connection of optical fiber cable is unreasonable due to issues such as high costs. Whilst, the visible light communication (VLC) is a section of optical wireless communications technology, that uses the light that is detectable between the ranges of 400 to 800 THz in order to transmit the signals from 1-2 km. Increasing demand for alternate old technology with FSO startups coupled with rise in the number of space researches are key driving forces of the market growth. Furthermore, Emergence of new applications such as IoT and 5G is expected to create significant growth opportunity in the market over the forecast period. However, increase in fitting charges impedes the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2019-2026.

The regional analysis of global Free Space Optics (FSO) and Visible Light Communication market is considered for the key regions such as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America and Rest of the World. North America is the leading/significant region across the world in terms of market share owing to huge investment in telecom infrastructure, government funding and deployment of several VLC systems in commercial and public places. Whereas, Asia-Pacific is also anticipated to exhibit highest growth rate / CAGR over the forecast period 2019-2026. Factors such as growing CAD industry, recent development and increased expenditure on VLC related R&D activities in region would create lucrative growth prospects for the Free Space Optics (FSO) and Visible Light Communication market across Asia-Pacific region.
