Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Global Submarine Fiber Cable Market 2016 - 2020” research report to their website


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/06/2016 -- Report forecast the global submarine fiber cable market to grow at a CAGR of 5.75% during the period 2016-2020.

A submarine fiber cable with high-capacity communication capability is an essential wireline communication medium between two continents, countries, or islands. Most submarine fibers use the optical amplification technology to carry high-speed data traffic across regions. The length of the submarine fiber cable varies over a distance of few kilometers to more than 35,000 km.

Most submarine fiber cable projects take several months or years for completion. At present, most submarine fiber cables have a capacity of 10-40 Gbps. The adoption of 100 Gbps high-speed submarine fiber cables started only after 2010. Owing to their high-speed capacity, these fiber cables carry a huge amount of data traffic every day. In 2015, more than 97% of global data traffic was carried through submarine fiber cables, with the remaining 3% carried through satellite systems.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global submarine fiber cable market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the following aspects:

- Construction and deployment cost of new projects
- Construction and deployment costs
- Upgrade projects

The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:

- Americas
- Australasia
- India Ocean Pan-East Asia
- Transatlantic
- Transpacific

According to the report, a key growth driver for this market is the growth in bandwidth. The penetration of Internet in Africa is less compared to other regions in the world. Africa accounted for an Internet penetration of 29.52%, whereas the ROW registered nearly 50% penetration in 2015. This is a clear indicator that there is significant scope for expansion of telecommunications in the continent. With growing number of businesses in Africa, the demand for Internet connectivity is bound to rise. In order to capture this market potential, telecom operators and ISPs need to offer products that can meet user requirements such as reliable network and increased bandwidth.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the delay in project financing and maintenance activities.
