Research and Markets: Global 40G and 100G Line-cards Market 2011-2015: Prices of 100G Line-Cards Are Expected To Decline By 2013
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hbncrw/global_40g_and)
has announced the addition of the "Global
40G and 100G Line-cards Market 2011-2015" report to their
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global 40G and 100G Line-cards market
to grow at a CAGR of 27.2 percent over the period 2011-201. One of the
key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing
bandwidth requirements. The Global 40G and 100G Line-cards market has
also been witnessing the growing demand for 100G Line-cards.
The key vendors dominating this market space are Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena
Corp., Fujitsu Ltd., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., and ZTE (News - Alert) Corp.
The oter vendors mentioned in the report are Cisco Systems Inc., NEC
Corp., Ericsson Inc., Xtera Communications Inc., Juniper Networks Inc .,
Technicolor Inc., Infinera Corp., Nokia Siemens (News - Alert) Networks, Fiberhome
Networks Co. Ltd., and Tellabs Inc.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Networking team
said: ''Over the past few years, the demand for 40G and 100G line-cards
has been increasing significantly. However, 100G line-cards accounted
for a very low percent of the entire sales volume of the Global 40G and
100G Line-cards market in 2011, because they are much more expensive
than 40G line-cards. Despite this, the sales of 100G line-cards are
expected to overshadow those of 40G line-cards in the coming years. This
is because the prices of 100G line-cards are expected to decline by
2013. Indeed, by the end of 2015, the revenue contribution of 100G
line-cards is expected to increase significantly.''
According to the report, the most important factor driving the adoption
of 40G and 100G line-cards is the growing need for bandwidth to support
data-intensive applications such as online gaming, IPVOD, and videophone
services. Further, the penetration of smartphones and tablets has
increased significantly, leading to increased demand for high-speed
internet. The applications that are frequently used in these devices
require high bandwidth to offer a rich experience to end-users.
Therefore, 40G and 100G line-cards, which offer high bandwidth, are
increasingly being adopted by enterprises and service providers.
