Indoor Optical Cable Market Demand Status
1. Market demand and product stage analysis
With the rapid development of broadband network construction and intelligent buildings, the market demand for indoor communication optical cables is also increasing, and the market capacity is large. In addition to the user’s introduction end, indoor communication optical cables can also be widely used as indoor wiring, jumpers, communication equipment and data equipment in the connection and data lines. With the continuous development of fiber optics, this demand will continue Continue to increase.
In addition to the communication field, indoor optical cables in other fields and export needs must also be considered. Therefore, the domestic market demand for indoor optical cables is estimated to reach about 7 billion yuan this year and exceed 10 billion yuan next year. The market demand in the future will remain even More than 20% growth rate.
The development of domestic indoor optical cables can be roughly divided into four stages. The first stage before 2003 is the initial stage of indoor optical cables. It is basically the stage of research, preparation and development. A small number of small-core indoor optical cables are used in jumpers. market. 2004 to 2009 is the second stage. As a transitional stage, industrialization is gradually taking shape, and industry standards are simply formed into series. Users are gradually increasing, and the use of indoor fiber optic cables is also becoming increasingly wide and diversified. The third stage is from 2010 to 2015, which is a period of rapid industrialization. At this stage, indoor optical cables will grow steadily, manufacturers will increase rapidly, and price competition in the market will be fierce. Various manufacturers explore ways to seek development and growth. Various structures Indoor fiber optic cables of various materials and uses have been developed. The fourth stage is from 2016 to the next few decades, and is the stage for the future development of indoor optical cables. Indoor optical cables will be used in a large number of fields and scopes. The structure of indoor optical cables will be more diversified, the technology will become more mature, the product quality will be more complete and reliable, the market will be more stable and standardized, and the indoor optical cable production plants will also be concentrated and integrated. Large-scale, the market vitality of indoor optical cable will be more powerful.
2. Customer analysis
Except for some R & D, the production of indoor optical cables is basically a processing industry. In fact, materials account for most of the price and cost. Therefore, the mainstream suppliers of indoor optical cable materials are basically a stronger party, which plays a very important role in the competition of the indoor optical cable market. In addition, indoor optical cables are currently basically in the buyer’s market, and customers can have certain negotiation advantages in terms of price, quality, service, or other sales terms, which is a strong market competitiveness. Even if the customer’s purchase volume is not large, or it cannot bring important markets or a certain reputation to the manufacturer, there is still a certain degree of strength.
The indoor optical cable user group mainly includes optical device manufacturers, integrated wiring manufacturers, network integration companies, real estate developers, communications operators, radio and television enterprises, enterprises and administrative units, and military applications.
The application of indoor optical cables enters various aspects and uses are detailed. At present, the main market directions are jumpers, wiring, operators, overseas markets and other industries. The customers are obviously different, the market behavior is different, the optical cable structure is different, the application methods are different, and the requirements for optical cables are different.
(1) Jumpers are mainly various jumpers, plugs for connecting cables, inside the transfer box, and end users.
(2) The wiring category is mainly used for house wiring, which can be vertical wiring, horizontal wiring, house wiring, and end-user wiring. Currently, the largest amount of dish-type fiber optic cables is used in this market. In the future, applications in this area will appear More types of fiber optic cable.
(3) The operator category is mainly purchased by various operators. In China, this market is the most concentrated and the procurement volume is relatively large, but the competition is also fierce. China Unicom, telecommunications, mobile and broadcasting are all developing.
(4) The overseas market category mainly refers to the export of indoor fiber optic cables. The sales direction can be developed countries or developing countries.
(5) Other industries are mainly military, aerospace, automotive, high-speed rail, coal mine, medical and non-communication applications.
3. Market trends and market opportunities
Although the user-side communication cables are mainly digital cables, with the rapid expansion of data on the Internet and the large increase in access networks and user premises, digital cables will be unable to meet this development demand, and the market for indoor optical cables will be steadily year by year. Expansion, the situation is very optimistic, this is the development trend of the market.
In the early indoor optical cable market, single-core and dual-core optical cables were usually purchased by some jumper factories. There were few optical cable structures and the market was relatively single. For several reasons, first, the user’s requirements are increasing, leading to an increase in the types of indoor optical cables. Second, the scope of application of indoor optical cables has increased, and the customer base has increased. Third, the participation and collection of operators has led to a significant increase in the use of indoor optical cables in certain structures. Fourth, customer choices are diversified, and user choices are increasing. Fifth, the complex and changeable application environment requires the selection of different indoor optical cables, and the technology of the procurement process is significantly enhanced. Sixth, market demand has grown significantly. The market has also changed a lot. The main requirements for user selection are product diversification, reliable quality, low cost, safety and environmental protection. The market’s requirements for products are to meet basic standard requirements, to meet user selection requirements, to meet environmental use requirements, to meet price and cost requirements, and to rationalize requirements.
Market demand is the leader of industrial development and the leader of enterprise development, so market changes and market development trends have always been valued by various companies. These changes in the market require each enterprise to analyze and understand different requirements for different customer groups, and adopt different market strategies and product strategies.
At present, the market for indoor optical cables in China is still in an imperfect stage, and the development space is quite large. The market is immature. There is no real monopoly enterprise. Most users are still in the selection process. For most fiber optic cable manufacturers, there are still business opportunities in the indoor fiber optic cable market.
