Dublin, May 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Active Optical Cables: Market Forecasts: 2020 to 2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The "Active Optical Cable (AOC)" report provides market forecasts and market analysis and discusses the new world of hyperscale data centers, 200/400G transmission, embedded optics, and likely retreats from manufacturing AOCs in China.

The analyst has been providing coverage of the market for active optical cable (AOC) in the data center market longer than any other established industry analysis firm and has issued analysis and market forecasts of AOCs dating back well over ten years. This report builds on this experience but provides a completely new assessment of the market opportunities.

This report examines whether AOCs can ever find permanent and substantial markets beyond the data center - for example in high-performance computing, personal computing, the military, and telecommunications.

The analyst also discusses whether video/consumer AOCs can ever grow beyond niche status. A substantial market for video AOCs has been predicted for many years but has never taken off commercially. In a world in which video traffic dominates the network, will video AOCs finally find their market?

For almost as long as the analyst has been covering AOCs and transceivers, these products were dominated by Chinese manufacturers. However, current geopolitical events seem certain to disrupt this situation.

In addition, the textual analysis of this report is also shipped with a spreadsheet containing five-year forecasts in volume and value terms. These forecasts include breakouts by cable length, data rate, MSA, type of fiber, etc.
