Market Overview

Free Space Optics a line-of-sight communication technology to bring revolution in the Free Space Optics Market to reach USD 1,748.0 million by 2023


NEW YORK, Sept. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Free Space Optics (FSO) market is expected to increase from USD 116.9 million in 2016, to USD 1,748.0 million in 2023, at a significant CAGR of 41.8% from 2017 to 2023. The factors driving the free space optics market are free licensing of FSO, last mile connectivity, and alternative solution for overburdened radio frequency (RF) technology for outdoor networking. Increasing demand of FSO technology in military environments and incorporation of FSO in 3G and 4G network connectivity further propels the growth of the free space optics market.

Free space optics (FSO) communication, also known as free space photonics (FSP) or optical wireless is a line-of-sight technology that propagates light in free space such as air, vacuum, or outer space in order to transmit data through wireless technology for computer networking and telecommunication. The technology requires light to transmit data, which can be focused by either using light emitting diodes (LEDs) or lasers. FSO uses optical signals as the carrier frequencies to provide point-to-point transmission of communication information through the atmosphere. Low initial investment, high security, flexible rollouts, low power usage per transmitted bit are some benefits over existing technologies. High bandwidth provisioning and quick establishment of communication link makes FSO popular in various industries.

Based on components, transmitters held the largest share of the global free space optics market in 2016, followed by receivers segment. The data transmission segment held the major share of the FSO market in 2016 followed by defense applications.

The key players operating in the FSO market are LightPointe Communications Inc., Mostcom Ltd., AOptix Technologies Ltd., Trimble Hungary Kft. , fSONA Networks Corp., Wireless Excellence Ltd., IBSENtelecom Ltd., Harris Corporation, Anova Technologies, Wireless Excellence Limited, Yenista Optics SA, Olson Technology Inc., Laser Light Communication inc., Imagine Optics SA and Plaintree Systems Inc.
