report has been added to's

The global dark fiber networks market is set to expand with a double
digit CAGR throughout the forecast period to cross US$ 11 billion by
2026, primarily due to rapidly growing internet traffic worldwide.

The global internet traffic was expected to cross 100 petabytes per
month in 2017 with a CAGR of over 25% through 2011 to 2017. This has
resulted into high demand for internet bandwidth to facilitate transport
of high volumes of data.

Dark fiber networks have emerged as a viable solution for different
organizations seeking enhanced network management and communication.
With continued penetration of internet services, the demand for internet
bandwidth is estimated to remain rampant over the coming years. This is
estimated to remain the most prominent factor responsible for dark fiber
networks market growth across the worldwide.

The overall dark fiber networks market is segmented on the basis of
fiber type, network type and end-user. On the basis of fiber type, the
market is led by multi-mode accounting for more than 2/3rd of the total
market value. This is primarily due to higher utilization of dark fiber
through underground fiber networks.

Dark fiber networks market is strongly supported by the business
organizations having heavy dependence over internet connectivity. These
networks are believed to be highly beneficial for companies requiring
high volumes of data flow in their operation. These benefits include
scalability, reduced network latency, enhanced security and reliability.

Google, Inc., Facebook, Inc. and Microsoft Corporation are prime
examples inclined towards having their own fiber network. For instance,
Google has been aggressively purchasing dark fiber since 2005 with an
intent of establishing high speed network between its data centers.
Further, Facebook operates majority of its data transport through
previously unused dark fiber networks'. With continually rising volumes
of data worldwide, dark fiber networks are set to witness higher demand
in the following years.

Another factor fueling the market growth is declining costs of dark
fiber network leasing. With growing density of fiber networks, the
overall costs of equipment and installation has reduced significantly,
thereby lowering the leasing costs. Majority of the market finds its
potential in underground fibers as significant chunk of these networks
are still unlit.
