Metro Ethernet Market By Fiber Mode Type (Single-mode Module and Multi-mode Module), By End-user (ISPs & Telecom., Banking, Finance Services & Insurance (BFSI), Information Technology, Education, Manufacturing & Logistics, Hospitality & Retail and Healthcare) – Growth, Future Prospects, and Competitive Analysis, 2018 - 2026

"Ever-Rising Internet Traffic & Demand for Higher Bandwidth Worldwide to Stimulate the Demand for Metro Ethernet Network"

Global metro Ethernet market valued at US$ 28.46 Bn in 2017 and poised to reach US$ 88.51 Bn by 2026, expanding at CAGR of 13.51% across the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Metro Ethernet networks have occurred as a viable solution for several organizations seeking enhanced network management and communication. Such technology is rapidly penetrating in several applications as an alternative to cable modem and Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL). With continual penetration of internet services worldwide, the demand for Internet bandwidth and uninterrupted services is estimated to remain high in the coming years, thereby driving the Metro Ethernet market growth worldwide. Metro Ethernet networks have unlocked the promising avenue to profits for telecommunication as well as internet service providers. In addition, with rising popularity of high-speed networks, the overall prices (per mile) have declined significantly over the past few years. This is another prominent factor in fueling market growth.

"Multi-mode Module Segment Accounted to Continue Leading the Market"

These are metro Ethernet networks having high density of multi-mode modules. Credited to increasing prevalence of communication networks across the world, more Ethernet networks estimated to deploy in the years to come. This would ensure strong growth for multi-mode metro Ethernet networks segment through the forecast period. The segment accounted for close to 70% of the global market value in the same year. The trend shall extend and the segment will hold on to its leading position throughout the forecast period. The multi-mode module Ethernet technology is preferred by communication service providers and network infrastructure vendors to offer high-speed data transfer services for both small and long-range communications. In addition, single-mode module networks enable telecom network links to be established over longer distances with minimal power loss, thereby augmenting its adoption among communication service providers.

"North America Leads the Market; Asia Pacific to Emerge as the Fastest Growing Regional Market"

Currently, North America leads the market contributing to more than 1/3rd of the overall market value worldwide. The region is presumed to hold on to its leading position throughout the forecast period also partly on the back of investments made by tech-giants in a bid to build their own network infrastructure. Further, Asia Pacific is expected to register maximum growth in market value, expanding at a CAGR of over 14% during the forecast period. The metro Ethernet landscape in Asia Pacific differs from North America and Europe. Japan, Korea and China will prove to be the major players in the deployment of Ethernet metro network. Primary factor for attractiveness of this region is that these countries have not invested as much in Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET) or Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and have a cleaner slate than North America and Europe to deploy new data services in the metro area. Number of metro Ethernet deployments already been announced and deployed by big telecom providers. China will also emerge as largest market after the restructuring of China Telecom into different entities such as China Netcom, Unicom, and Railcom. In Japan, tough competition between telecom providers has driven the cost of private-line services lower than in most other countries. Japan is also expected to highlight promising growth rate in metro Ethernet deployments for multimedia services.
