January 13, 2003--ElectroniCast Corp.'s Optical Fiber Amplifier, Gain Block & Components Global Market Forecast Report presents a detailed ten-year forecast and analysis of the consumption of optical fiber amplifiers (OFAs).

ElectroniCast Corp.'s Optical Fiber Amplifier, Gain Block & Components Global Market Forecast Report presents a detailed ten-year forecast and analysis of the consumption of optical fiber amplifiers (OFAs).

The forecast is segmented into the significant end applications on a regional basis, by amplifier types, optical fiber gain blocks, and the various components used to assemble the gain blocks. Optical fiber gain blocks are used in the fabrication of the OFAs.

"The global consumption (use) of active optical gain blocks (AOGBs) will increase from a 2002 value of $1.18 billion to $2.45 billion in 2006," says Stephen Montgomery, president of ElectroniCast. "Optical fiber gain block consumption currently is dominated by 1550-nm erbium-doped fiber amplifier (EDFA) gain blocks. Telecommunication application leads in OFA use. However, private data communications, cable television, military, and test/measurement OFA use will provide unique opportunities for component manufacturers as well as the system equipment manufacturers."

The new forecast service is immediately available for $12,000. The complete service includes analysts inquiry services, debriefing sessions, quarterly industry review, extensive data base spreadsheets, and the report text.

ElectroniCast Corp. is headquarted in San Mateo, CA.
