Global RF-over-Fiber Market by Component, Frequency Band, Application, Vertical and Geography - Forecast to 2023 -


The "RF-over-Fiber
Market by Component, Frequency Band (L, S, C, X, KU, and KA),
Application (Telecommunications, Radar, Navigation, Broadcast, and
Broadband), Vertical (Civil and Military), and Geography - Global
Forecast to 2023"
report has been added to's

The RF over fiber market is expected to grow from USD 336.3 million in
2018 to reach USD 566.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 10.97% during the
forecast period.

Increasing cellular communication is generating greater demand for RFoF
solutions for both consumer and industrial applications. The increasing
adoption of smartphones, the growing use of social networks and digital
broadcasting of TV programs, and the rising need for high-speed cellular
connectivity worldwide are the leading factors for the increasing
deployment of RF over fiber products.

The installation cost of RFoF products for applications such as
distributed antenna systems (DAS), FTTx, and broadcasting depends on
many factors such as the frequency range, distance, and communications.
The installation cost of RFoF varies with the frequency range whether it
is VHF, UHF, or Public Safety frequencies of 700-800 MHz. If it includes
all of the above, it is going to be much more expensive than just one of
those frequency bands. This is the factor that restraint the growth of
the RF over fiber market.

RF over fiber market for the civil vertical is expected to grow
at a high rate during the forecast period

Owing to the broad deployment of VoIP, long-term evolution (LTE), 2G,
3G, 4G, and 5G networks all over the world, various operators have been
continuously investing and actively playing a crucial part in bringing
innovations in network access. The growing internet use and continuous
improvements in internet applications drives the RF over fiber market
growth for the civil vertical.

Broadband is expected to be the fastest-growing application in
the RF over fiber market during the forecast period

The RF over fiber market for broadband is expected to grow at a high
rate between 2018 and 2023. Broadband communication can be deployed in
short time using RFoF technologies for facilitating connectivity in
events and concerts, remote or disaster-affected locations, and in other
emergency situations where connectivity needs to be established on short
