Global Optical Switches Market to Reach US$ 11.43 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Adoption of Automation Across Industry Verticals

Published on Jun 09, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Optical Switches Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global optical switches market reached a value of US$ 5.61 Billion in 2021. Optical switches are vital components in the field of networking. They are mainly designed in a multi-port network bridge form that is generally used to link multiple optic fibers and amplify the optical signal. Along with this, they are also utilized as a piece of networking equipment that are placed in-between optic fibers, which are intended for transmitting signals while controlling the data packets routing between outputs and inputs. The demand for optical switches is increasing across the globe due to their rising adoption in a wide range of applications, such as microsystems, networks and optical communications.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
