Outdoor Free Space Optics In Non-Military/Aerospace Applications Global Market Forecast

Free Space Optics (FSO) is a line-of-sight (LOS) technology that uses directed LEDs or Laser emitters, which provide optical bandwidth Transmitters and Receivers to link voice, video, and data intelligent transfer.  A single FSO link product often may incorporate multiple transmitters along with receiver/s to ensure adequate performance, in case of interference.

FSO devices, which are placed at a window inside of a building, but directed outside, for outdoor links, are included in the forecast.  Only the FSO Function of FSO/RF Hybrid Products is included in market data.

Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters Global Market Forecast & Analysis

This market forecast report, which is available immediately, is part of a consultant service from ElectroniCast Consultants to our clients.  This is the ElectroniCast analysis and forecast of global market consumption of planar lightwave circuit (PLC) splitters used in optical communication applications.  For the purposes of this study, ElectroniCast specifically addresses the PLC splitter, using waveguide circuits and aligned fiber optic pigtails, integrated inside a package.

LED Track Lighting Heads Used Inside Retail Stores Global Market Forecast

This report provides estimates and forecasts, based on market research study work performed by ElectroniCast Consultants. The LED-based lighting covered in this study include track lighting heads (fixtures), including the initial lamp, which are used inside of retail stores.


Track lighting is a method of lighting where light fixtures are attached anywhere on a continuous track device, which is a surface mounted channel that holds the lighting units (or ‘heads’) in place and brings power to them. The track is usually mounted to the ceiling but it can be mounted to a wall, a beam or dropped from the ceiling on stems or cables. This market study covers only the movable lighting unit for track lighting and not the track.

Human Centric Lighting Global Market Forecast

Human Centric Lighting, also sometimes referred to as Biodynamic Light or Circadian Lighting, is the next development stage in the evolution of lighting and luminaire design; this report provides estimates and forecasts, based on market research study work performed by ElectroniCast Consultants.

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is aimed to mimic (closely imitate) the natural color of daylight, which stimulates the production of melatonin and serotonin which control the physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a roughly 24-hour cycle, responding primarily to light and darkness in a person, or their circadian rhythm.

The module/device hardware covered in this study are used for stationary/fixed locations (non-vehicle or non-portable) solid-state general lighting applications.

Outside Plant Fiber Optic Cable Ducts U.S.A. Market Forecast & Analysis

Deployment methods for outside plant (OSP) fiber optic cable conduit/ducts/innerducts vary; this market study covers all methods, except aerial.

Aerial (telephone poles, towers)
Below grade (underground or under bridges or in tunnels)

This report provides our analysis and forecast of the use of non-aerial ducts, in the United States, which are installed to accommodate fiber optic cable. In regards to ducts that accommodate copper/coaxial and fiber optic cable, we also include the consumption (use) of the duct in our market data, however, innerducts, that accommodate a copper/coaxial cable only, are not included.

Field Installable Fiber Optic Mechanical Connector Global Market Forecast & Analysis

The global fiber optic connector consumption is driven by a dramatic increase in bandwidth demand beyond the limits of copper.  Technological advances in fiber optics are assuring the migration of fiber closer and closer to the end user. This translates into demand for shorter links where connectors represent a substantial share of the total installation cost. The cost concerns are being addressed with the introduction of smaller, lower cost and easier and faster to install connectors. There are two primary technology solutions to field-install a fiber optic connector:
  • Fusion splice-based technology:  Splice on Connectors (SOC)
  • Mechanical-based technology: Mostly mechanical splice- or crimp-type connectors
This report presents the ElectroniCast market forecast of the use of fiber optic mechanical-type connectors in field installations (inside or outside plant), attaching to an end of one optical fiber.
