Wilmington, Delaware, Sept. 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Optical Waveguide Market was valued at US$ 7.2 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of over 6.6% over the forecast period of 2023-2030, according to the latest market report by RationalStat

Market Definition, Market Scope, and Report Overview

An optical waveguide, often known as a waveguide, is a physical structure that guides electromagnetic waves, particularly those in the optical (light) spectrum. These waveguides are used in a variety of applications, especially in optics and photonics, to control and regulate light propagation. Waveguides are critical components in optical communication, sensing, imaging, and a wide range of other optical technologies.

Global demand for high-speed, wide-bandwidth communication networks is increasing. Optical waveguides are critical components of optical fiber communication systems, allowing data to be transmitted over long distances with minimal loss. Demand for optical waveguides is being driven by the expansion of 5G networks and the implementation of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband connections.
