Global Free Space Optics (FSO) Market Size

The Global Free Space Optics (FSO) or Optical Wireless Market is projected to grow from USD 4.4 billion in 2022 to USD 47.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR value of 34.1% from 2022 to 2027.

FSO (free space optics) is an optical communication technology that allows optical connectivity by transmitting data via incident light in free space. Outdoor wireless access, storage area network (SAN), last-mile access, bridging WAN access, and military access are just a few of the services that utilize the FSO communication channel. The requirement of high bandwidth and the growing use of free optics in military applications are driving the industry.

During the forecast period, the market is expected to grow owing to the increasing utilization of free space optics (FSO) in 3G and 4G networks, as well as the cloud computing’s convenient and simple deployment mode. Furthermore, the market is growing as a result of the several advantages it provides, such as low infrastructure costs, fast broadband availability, high data transmission speed, and enhanced connection.

In the current environment, rising demand for increased bandwidth and laser technology is propelling the global market for free-space optics to expand. Today, 4.62 billion people utilize the internet, accounting for 58.4 percent of the world's population. The market is being propelled forward by the increasing usage of FSO to connect Local Area Networks (LANs), Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), provide backhaul network connectivity for mobile wireless networks, and interactions using optical fibers.

Increasing development of private LTE networks, as well as the necessity for secured and high-speed optical communications, will fuel market growth throughout the forecast period. Moreover, rising requirements for last-mile connection and continued growth for alternatives to RF technology for outdoor connectivity would propel the market forward.

The COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the global market for free-space optics. The telecoms business is one of the industries that has been badly impacted. The pandemic will very certainly delay the implementation of FSO technology, which will be detrimental to all stakeholders. Companies are also adapting their strategy in response to changes in the market and other critical issues by modifying portfolio composition, engaging in capital spending, R&D projects, mergers & acquisitions, and other development techniques.

Despite these advantages, atmospheric weather conditions like fog, rain, snow, and turbulence have a significant impact on the effectiveness of FSO communication systems. As a result, the performance of FSO systems is limited by air conditions, which is one of the key challenges that these optical wireless communication links confront.

Free Space Optics (FSO) Market: By Component

The market is segmented into transmitter, receiver, modulator, and demodulator based on the components. The transmitter segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the free space optics (FSO) market from 2022 to 2027. Transmitters are preferred over other components because they are technically simple, include no mechanical components, and require very little maintenance. They are also immune to turbulence that causes segment growth.

Free Space Optics (FSO) Market: By Application

Disaster recovery, defense, healthcare, security, and others are the segmentations based on the application. The defense segment is expected to hold a larger share as compared to other segments. FSO is the next step in connecting to the internet for the military, as it can deliver low-cost, large-bandwidth, elevated, and highly secure in space and within the troposphere. In comparison with current Radio Frequency (RF) systems, this is being researched and investigated for applications and technical utilities in both civil and military domain systems. Its immense advantages include security level, improved data prices, fast infrastructure, no necessity for licensed spectrum, best costs, and ease of operation.
