Among these, the LC market segment held the leading position in 2014. Lucent connectors, mostly utilized for high density connections, are applied in data processing networks, telecommunication networks, local area networks (LANs), cable television (CATV), fiber-to-the-home, and premises distribution systems. These connectors are half the size of standard connectors and are highly efficient and because of this, nowadays, LC is replacing SC in corporate networking systems. On account of the rising demand, the market for LC is expected to register impressive growth in the forthcoming years.


On the basis of application, the global fiber optic connectors market is classified into the markets for telecom, datacom, lasers, DWDM systems, and others such as medical and healthcare, military, and CATV. Among these, the telecom industry emerged as the leader in 2014 on account of the high uptake of fiber optic connectors as the transmission medium for long-distance transmission and high data rate in the telecommunications network. The rising demand for faster internet services and superior telecom capacity is resulting in extensive usage of optical fiber connectors in the telecom networks, stimulating the growth of the market to a great extent.
