Global Wavelength Selective Switch Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A wavelength selective switch is a device that can selectively direct light waves of certain wavelengths or colors to a specific output port. This is important because it allows for the routing of specific signals on different optical fibers, which can then be used to create more efficient and powerful networks.

LCOS based devices:

The Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) based devices are used in the production of Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS). The WSS is a device that allows selection of multiple wave- lengths of light by means of a liquid crystal. The wavelength selective switch market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing application areas such as solar, telecom and biomedicine.

MEMS based devices:

The technology is used in optical wavelength selective switches market owing to its properties such as low power consumption, small size and weight along with high speed switching operation.

Application Insights:

Based on applications, the global wavelength selective switch market is segmented into 1x4 or less add/drop module, 1x5 or larger add/drop module and others. The 1x4 or less Add/Drop Module segment dominated the market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing demand for optical fiber networks from various end-use industries such as telecommunication, data communication & ITU services among others.

The growing popularity of online gaming has resulted in an increased number of broadband subscribers across the globe. Optical fiber network providers are thus investing significantly in expanding their existing infrastructural facilities to cater to this growing requirement from internet service providers (ISPs). As a result, there has been an upsurge in demand for wavelength selective switches that can help ISPs manage traffic and optimize network performance while reducing costs by minimizing operational expenditure (OPEX).

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for the largest share in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing demand from countries, such as Japan, South Korea, China, and India. These countries are adopting advanced technologies at a faster pace compared with other regions. This has led to an increase in adoption of Wavelength Selective Switches (WSS) across this region.

Moreover, Asia Pacific is also home to several key players who are actively engaged in promoting product adoption by various telecom operators for providing high-quality communication services among subscribers over fiber networks using different wavelengths such as mmWave Bandwidth Product (BWP), Very High Frequency (VHF), Very Low Frequency (VLF), etc., which will drive the overall market growth over the forecast period.

North America regional market accounted second largest share after Asia Pacific.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive applications: The growth of data-driven services such as 4K video, cloud storage, and the Internet of Things is fueling the need for more bandwidth, which in turn is driving demand for Wavelength Selective Switches.
  • Proliferation of data center deployments: The growth of data centers is creating a greater need for Wavelength Selective Switches to manage traffic within these facilities.
  • Emergence of software-defined networking (SDN): SDN is helping to drive down the cost and complexity of deploying Wavelength Selective Switches, making them more accessible to a wider range of organizations.
  • Growing popularity of optical transport networks (OTNs): OTNs are using Wavelength Selective Switches to aggregate and manage large volumes or optical traffic across multiple domains. This is helping to expand the market for Wavelength Selective Switches beyond traditional telco environments into other sectors such as enterprise and cloud computing.
