The Value of Non-OEM Use Field-Installable Fusion Splice-on Type Connectors in North America Was $18.04 Million in 2014, Finds New Report

An updated report on Splice On Connectors (SOC) for North American market is now available from


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/23/2015 --, a leading market research publication distribution platform announced the release of a new market forecast of the consumption of field terminated fiber optic fusion splice-on connectors in North America. The market forecast segments the connectors by single-mode and multimode optical fiber, as well as into the following types: MPO, LC, FC, ST, SC, and other.

Field terminated fiber optic fusion Splice On Connectors (SOC) are installed for rapid repairs or for limited space situations where pre-terminated fiber cabling may be difficult, such as when the cable assembly needs to pass through small openings such as conduit. The splice-on connectors are an option when the precise length of the optical fiber link is not pre-determined and a field-installed termination solution is required, such as in Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and other communication applications.

The value of non-OEM use field-installable fusion splice-on type connectors in North America was $18.04 million in 2014. The consumption value is forecast to more than double, along with similar rising quantity growth. In the year 2020, the consumption value is forecast to reach $41.31 million. Market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.

"The SOCs are emerging as a viable alternative to pre-terminated fiber optic cables (pigtail and cable assemblies/ patch cords). Also, based on primary research interviews with network planners and installers, we are finding that field terminated fusion splice-on connectors are rapidly being accepted as a go-to solution. With SOCs, communication network technicians can install reliable cable links with exact lengths, eliminating cable shortness or excess slack that is typically a result with the pre-terminated cable solution," said analyst of this market study.

The use of SC (APC-types) in Telecom and CATV networks (FTTX/FTTH) are projected to dominate the consumption of single-mode connectors in 2015. Multimode connector use is forecast to increase at a very strong average annual growth rate of 40.8 percent during the forecast period (2014-2020). Multimode fiber is best suited for use in short lengths, such as those used in Local Area Networks (LANs) and Data Centers (DCs), as well as most specialty/miscellaneous applications.
