Dell'Oro: $11 Billion Market for Optical Transport DWDM by 2015

Total worldwide Optical DWDM equipment revenue is forecast to grow at a 12% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next 5 years, reaching $11 billion, according to a newly released Optical Transport forecast report by Dell'Oro Group. Demand for high capacity wavelengths will drive up 40/100 Gbps DWDM shipments to an average annual growth rate of 50%.

"We're projecting a very strong market for both 40 and 100 gigabit DWDM," said Jimmy Yu, Sr. Director of Optical Transport research at Dell'Oro Group. "In fact, we have raised our forecast of both 40 and 100 gigabit because the demand for high-speed interconnects continues to exceed our expectations. The adoption of 100 gigabit is occurring faster than that of 40 gigabit, driving revenues to nearly $1 billion by 2013 and $2 billion by 2015. We believe 40 gigabit will also maintain its momentum through the forecast period since it's likely to sustain a competitive price advantage in ultra long haul spans," added Mr. Yu. http://www.delloro.com
