Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest ROADM Components report, which tracks the reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) optical network equipment market and the wavelength selective switch (WSS) components within it.
ROADM ANALYST NOTE
“The rollout of colorless, directionless, and contentionless (CDC) ROADMs is starting this year with major suppliers such as Ciena moving to production and carriers including Verizon proceeding with deployments. This should provide a much-needed tailwind to the WSS component sector,” notes Andrew Schmitt, principal analyst for optical at Infonetics Research.
ROADM COMPONENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Globally, ROADM WSS component revenue totaled $111 million in the second half of 2013 (2H13), up 4% from the first half of 2013 (1H13), but down 7% from the same period a year ago (2H12)
- For the full year 2013, worldwide revenue for ROADM WSS components declined 8% from 2012 due to mild increases in volume combined with continued price declines
- In 2014, Infonetics expects both WSS component unit shipments and revenue to increase
- Meanwhile, global revenue for WDM ROADM-based optical equipment (excluding components) increased 11% in 2013 from 2012, to $4.5 billion
- Infonetics expects WDM ROADM-based optical equipment to remain the fastest-growing segment of the optical transport business, with a projected 2013–2018 compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13%
- No single vendor controls the market for WDM ROADM equipment—they are tightly bunched
