Global Optical Backplane Connectors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An optical backplane connector is a type of electrical connector used to connect two or more printed circuit boards (PCBs) together, usually in a stacked configuration. Optical backplane connectors are used to carry high-speed signals between the boards, and can be either passive or active.


Single-mode optical fiber is a kind of optical fiber cable that can carry only one signal at a time. It has many uses in the telecommunication and data transmission systems. The single-mode connector is used to connect the Optical Backplane (OB) to devices or equipment.


Multimode is a type of optical fiber cable that can support only one mode of light wave, which is usually used in telecommunication applications. The multimode optical fibers are made up of plastic core covered with a transparent layer of glass. This design allows the transmission of light through the core by refracting or reflecting the incident light back to its source. The main application areas where multimode optical fibers are used include telecom network infrastructure and local area networks (LAN).

Application Insights:

The defense industry accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The optical backplane connectors developed for defense applications are designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, such as high humidity and temperature. These connectors support high data rates, exhibit low insertion loss and offer reliable performance in a harsh environment.

The aerospace segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2030 owing to increasing demand for advanced technology products that provide enhanced connectivity options between aircraft systems. Optical backplane connectors enable flexible interconnection solutions between various components on an aircraft, which include digital devices, telecommunication equipment, sensors and actuation systems among others. Moreover, they also provide fail-safe connectivity across all system levels within an aircraft ensuring safety & security of data transmission throughout the flight duration without any disruption or failure occurrence.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for high-speed data communication systems and digital infrastructure. Moreover, presence of major optical fiber manufacturing companies such as Corning Incorporated and Vitesse Semiconductor will also drive industry growth in North America.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2018 to 2030 due to rising investments by governments of various countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, India among others for building advanced telecommunication infrastructures at a faster pace than other regions are experiencing now. This scenario will propel industry growth across Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for data-intensive applications such as big data, cloud computing, and Internet of Things (IoT) is fueling the growth of optical backplane connectors market.
  • Proliferation of next-generation data centers is also contributing to the growth of this market.
  • Growing popularity of high-speed networking technologies such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) and 40 Gigabit Ethernet (40 GbE) is propelling the demand for optical backplane connectors.
  • Rising number of hyperscale data centers is providing a major impetus to the growth of this market.
  • Growing adoption rateof 3D printing technology in various end-use industries is projected to create lucrative opportunities for players operating in optical backplane connectors market during forecast period
