27 June 2003 San Mateo, CA Lightwave -- The worldwide consumption value of fiber-optic fusion splicers will double from its $233-million mark in 2002 to $471 million by 2007, according to a new study released by ElectroniCast Corp.

"The Japan/Pacific Rim region will eventually take the market share lead," contends Stephen Montgomery, president of the market forecast consultancy. "There are several application standouts throughout the 2002-2012 forecast period, especially the use of fusion splicers by manufacturers of fiber-optic components/products in Asia,"
he adds.

"The Fiber Optic Fusion Splicer Global Market Forecast" presents the dollar value, quantity, and average price for various "single-fiber" and "multifiber" splicer products. ElectroniCast's study examines the relative material, capital and labor costs of mechanical versus fusion splices, the trends in cable installation and midspan access techniques, and the preferences of cable installers to derive a ten year forecast of the relative quantity share of total splices served by each method. This analysis leverages from ElectroniCast's fiber-optic cable forecast, which details the total fiber quantity and the share held by single loose tube, multiple loose tubes, ribbon, and tightly buffered cables.
