OTDR Testing Market: Introduction
The OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) is useful for testing the characteristics of the fiber optic cable. It can measure, detect, identify and locate optical components in an installed network including optical connectors, splitters, and fusion splices as well as faults such as tights bend causing high loss and break. An OTDR testing equipment combines a detector and a laser source to provide an inside image of the fiber link. Later, if the problem arises the comparison can be made between the original trace and a second trace. The key benefit of using an OTDR testing is the single-ended test which requires only one instrument and operator to find a fault in a network
Vendors in the OTDR testing market are focusing on research and development activities to evolve and enhance the technology. Also, the vendors are focused on integrating features that can enhance the quality of experience of the end user by reducing the test time. Increasing adoption of fiber optic cable and the increase in the demand for the internet are few of the key trends in the OTDR testing market.
OTDR Testing Market: Drivers and Restraints
Fiber optics act as the pillar of the Internet, as optical fiber cable is used as the medium for transmitting information from one point to another. Thus, increasing demand for high-speed internet is anticipated to surge the demand for the optical fiber cable and consequently drives the OTDR testing market over the forecast period. Moreover, growth in the end-use sectors such as telecommunication and military & aerospace will also be anticipated driving the growth of the OTDR testing market in the coming years. Furthermore, the existence of dark fiber also needs to be tested before installation. This will also drive the OTDR testing market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, lack of awareness amongst people in the emerging economies is anticipated to act as a factor hampering the growth of the global OTDR testing market over the forecast period. Additionally, the presence of a large installed base of fiber and slower adoption of OTDR testing technology also acts a challenge for the growth of the OTDR market in the coming years.
