Dell'Oro: Demand for 40G and 100G Wavelengths in Weak Optical Market for 1H2012


WDM equipment revenue rose five percent in first half 2012 compared to a year ago, according to a newly published report by Dell'Oro Group.  The growth is attributed to strong demand for 40/100 Gbps wavelengths.  However, the report finds that the overall optical transport equipment market declined approximately five percent in the first half of 2012 from year-ago levels to $6.1 billion.

"The optical market contracted in the first half of 2012 due to lower spending in the mature markets of North America and EMEA," said Jimmy Yu, Vice President of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group.  "The emerging regions of Asia Pacific and Latin America, however, did grow as service providers in the regions continued to expand network capacity," added Mr. Yu.

Two other key findings:

  • Huawei captured approximately 20 percent share of the worldwide optical market in first half 2012.
  • Adoption of Optical Packet products continued to rise and contributed close to one-third of the optical market revenues in first half 2012.
